Fresh out of the USPS box! I bought this mostly sight unseen (1 very bad picture) and I'm thrilled with the condition. It's got 3 or 4 small patches of very light scratches, otherwise it's mint. Showed up right before I have to go to work so I'll post better pics later.

Someone at some point put Epsom salts in it which is what you can see on the inside near the base. Rinsed most of them out but there's a little residue left to take care of.

What's cool about it to me is that the backside is a reused mold. You can see the fill in of the old block embossing. The new lettering is larger and extends over the sides at the beginning and the end

Wow! That is sure a beauty. Congrats on your purchase. Sight unseen sounds scary, glad it worked out well. Amazing bottle thanks for the pictures.
