In 1971 "Top Bottles USA" by Art and Jewel Umberger carried the following article:

"Charles B. Gardner has selected what he considers the top ten Flasks. Mr. Gardner is, by far, the most beloved and well-known collector in the nation. Charles “Bottles” Gardner, as he laughingly refers to himself, is a rare individual who unselfishly shares his vast knowledge with everyone in the bottle field. No single collector has ever contributed more, so willingly, as Charles Gardner. He writes: “Opinions may differ as to the comparative rarity and I have so many good ones it is difficult to decide.”

1. Jared Spencer, Olive green, GX-24
2. Jared Spencer, Olive green, GX-25
3. Jared Spencer, Olive green, GX-26
4. Eagle-cornucopia with J.P.F., Olive green, GII-37
5. Masonic, Clear, 1829, GIV-22
6. Andrew Jackson Masonic, Aqua, GI-69
7. John Q. Adams, Aqua, GI-62
8. Sunburst, Clear with cross, GVIII-4
9. Hard Cider, Peacock tone, GX-22
10. Columbia with Liberty Cap facing left, Deep blue, GI-119"

Incredibly, an example of each will be on display at the Houston 2024 National Antique Bottle & Glass Expo.

This is shaping up to be a once in a lifetime show so make your reservations now!!
