Love the post, all three phases, awesome read. Thanks for taking the time to post it, made my morning.

I was reading it fast, and when the photo of that bitters came up, I thought you had dug it in the insane TOC dump! I love the look of that bottle, I dont think I've ever seen a patent date embossing that was cruder or bigger, love it !

Hope that quart poison shows up for you. And the photos were amazing, I would imagine they are valuable, if they are original prints, given the content of the pix

nice job
