It's a darn nice bottle for sure. Enjoy it yourself, or sell for a nice little sum.

A little more info, After I dug this one up maybe 3 or 4 years ago I tried to do some slight research. I searched on ebay but the only thing I remember was I only seen one & it either got bid to $100 or I think had a Buy It now for $100 & it was Sold. It was in the exact same condition as mine, all funky oxidation coloration as found. Not Tumbled. I haven't looked constantly on ebay since but none found in recent search completed or ongoing. SO, I put mine on ebay last week with a $69 opening bid or Buy It now for a $100. No Bids. Figured since the only one I ever seen got $100 in same Condition mine should of at least got 1 bid for $69? But, NO. That's OK, No rush to sell as it has sentimental Value. THANKS, LEON.

Keystone Whiskey, 1854 (Malt)- Amber corker- 10 1/2 $12.00-16.00
Seems like if your Lucky you can squeeze that much out of a common Duffy's Malt Whiskey. You'll see 20 a week on ebay every week for past 20 years so common. Not like the Keystone. LEON.

Try starting the bid at $50?, and I think you will get some bites.

This type of action is what makes me highly suspicious of feebay. This could have been legit, but with listing another identical and no bids... come on. Sounds like monkey business on the first. They could have just hit it right, but this type of thing happens way too often. This is also another reason that feebay can't be trusted as a pricing tool.

Agreed with the ebay crap. I know people bid up their own stuff or friends of the sellers. Especially if the seller knows people are interested. Its so corrupt. I have seen those bottles sell for $20 with flaws and $40 - $50 tumbled but they aren't rare.

It is a large city, in general when a bottle is from a large city there were more produced (not always), in particular Philly being as old as it is collectors want the older stuff, when I say older because this is an old bottle I mean pontil and earlier bottles, so this bottle is not quite that old. I think it is a mistake for collectors to overlook bottles like this, but it happens so the demand for them is not high, the same happens with the Philly beers, but that is good for me! Demand is affected by desirability and desirability is quite often affected by demand. Quite the conundrum. Sounds like Sarasota941 wants it and willing to pay cash. I think it is pretty sweet, but I don't want it. So where does that put it on the desirability scale?
NJ / RI collectors it seems have a high priority on documenting and noting their bottles of I'll repute if memory serves me right. Little Rhody Bottle Club. Seems like higher demand, lesser supply, so prices are good... Correct me if I'm smoking
