I mainly ask because i have found one at a local "Mom & Pop" shop and havnt bought it yet. the color is green which has me skeptical to begin with, but the top is crude without any seem and the rest of the bottle has many imperfections as well. its definately not a wheaton. but the more i read about clevege's the more i think thats what it is. what do you think is fair market value of a repro?
As for fair market value Steve a green one maybe 25.00 dollars.An amber one close in style to the originals can command 200.00 to 300.00 dollars.
Here are the bases of a Clevenger version on the left and an original Whitney on the right that I OWN side by side.As you can see the two bottles are virtually identical.The Clevenger seems to be a sixteenth of an inch thicker.I have compared 7 originals that I own with three Clevenger versions and it holds true most of the time that the Clevengers are slightly larger front to back across the base.
Thank you Steve, i might have to head down and pick that bottle up now. it looks a heck of alot more like the one on the right than the other. and the price isnt too bad either. once i pick it up i'll try to post some picks on here. probably after christmas.
