Not rare by any stretch but people love the great graphics and the label on this one is in great shape.

Hi,
I keep a data-base of bottle sales (that interest me) from E-Bay and the major US auction houses. I have one of these selling for $54 on E-Bay 7-10-11 and another one selling for $500 on E-Bay on 3-22-18. Quite a disparity in the prices, but the expensive one was supposedly found in the wall of a house during a re-model and included a pamphlet. The pamphlet revealed that "Lawrence" was W.F. Lawrence from Epping, NH, whose embossed bottles are quite rare & expensive. Hope that helps. Mike

I can attest to the embossed examples being tough to find. It took me 20 years to get a complete set of the 3 sizes known. I think the middle size is the toughest.
