I just wanted to see what shade of amber your John Ryan ginger ale is. I have two different shades of the amber ginger ale and was curious if it differs from mine.

In General, I see them on ebay all the time. And those Auctions, You see the Indian Queen Bitters, Ear of Corn Bitters, Plantation Bitters all the same old common Bitters get big bucks, not because they are rare but Desirable I guess. I got some rare Bitters hundred times rarer then those but can't get much because they are more boring looking. LEON.

I believe its the new buy to resale crowd that sees these same bottles on eBay sell for a few hundred dollars and thats all they know. Then a rare not seen very often plain looking very rare bottle shows up they have no idea and pass it up. All the real collectors/ old timers gave up on Feebay and just wait for shows or have since passed on. I am not the most knowledgeable collector but I know whats rare around my area and what is rare in my collecting wheel house. I have bought some bottles at great deals in collections to resale to help pay for others I really need but it seems alot of newer people just buy to resale period and they seem to not even collect nor know what they are selling or if its rare , common or anything nor do they care. Its strictly how much can I make. It sucks. If I posted a clear john ryan 1866 and a cobalt one for example, the cobalt one to most would seem like the better purchase because it looks gorgeous but they would be way way wrong. Sexyiness sells? I feel like I could go on and on about this. So never call me on the phone about this because I will never shut up.

Yes, I'll try and shoot some pictures of 1852 amber John Ryan next week.
My health hasn't been so great lately, so please excuse my being slow on my reply.
However, I did buy some special lights for shooting bottles, so lets see if I can come up with better photos.

I personally like to refer to the types you are describing as scabs or leeches. They also don't support clubs, shows or collectors. They worship the almighty buck, as a rule cannot be trusted, their interest is purely in gain at any cost and in themselves. When I discover them I don't befriend or have dealings with them, even if they might have something I would like to collect. I refuse to encourage this mentality and try to warn my collecting friends. I do buy to resell, but I also collect and pick for others. I support shows by setting up at them, I have membership in many clubs and I hope that I am encouraging others as my interest does lie in creating friendships and trust. This will keep our hobby strong while the leech just sucks the life out of it.
