Before I throw these bottles on eRape, perhaps someone here might like to throw me an offer?

This Brinkerhoff's is the earlier $1.00 variant and has a sand chip pontil. We're not talking the ole' run of the mill olive amber Stoddard color, no way Jose', this one is GREEN!

There are two (2) tiny corner dings on the side panel which aren't noticeable and a flake off the lip, I think that is a fair trade off for the rare color. You can purchase the common colored examples that are replete with all sorts of scratches and case wear for about a G Wiz. I am entertaining offers around $1300.00. This still displays as mint.

I also have an open pontiled John Moffat's Phoenix Bitters. This one is that olive amber color and with the exception of an open bubble next to the "J" in JOHN, is super clean and sparkling mint./ I am looking for about $350.00 for that one.

Feel free to mail me directly if you want any other information. If you don't like my numbers, I am willing to dicker. I might even discuss the price with her too!

Sorry for the delay in response. I will assume that this started as a closed onion skin and found it's way open at some point in time. Using a caliper, the open onion is .375 x .415, loosely translated comes out to about an elliptical 3/8" opening.

A very thin part of the bubble remains closed. Fortunately it is on the JOHN MOFFAT side, the PHOENIX SIDE is as I would describe the bottle sans onion, super attic mint condition.

By the way, the conditional issues appear far worse in pictures and both of these bottles can display mint.

I lied about the pontil, I am ashamed of myself.
