Tim it has great color,just a little damage but...........its a Clevenger and I will show you why.First a bottle which would have had Booz's whiskey in it would not have left the Whitney factory in as crude of a condition this one is around the roof line and the tapered top.It also has all of the other tell tale signs that point to the Clevenger brothers as the manufacturers.The first O in the word E G BOOZ'S is drawn into the bottom of the neck mold line shown here.

Here is the other item I spotted that told me this was a Clevenger made bottle.The eBay bottle is on the bottom rotated 90 degress for the sake of explaining this.

It is still a great bottle Tim it will probably fetch well over 100 dollars.Did you see the other two Clevenger bottles in the Current Auctions and Sales section of this forum I posted yesterday.

I just ended up looking at them. I see now that is one of the big keys or factors to look at. Thanks so much. If one didn't know what to look for with the information you have provided, it could very easily get a nod as original. I hope everyone thinking of adding a Booz gets to view this great info!

All the best,
Tim
