The site where I found the first Hygrade turned out another today, this one has the extra fleur-de-lis and the Illinois diamond on the base. From my research, all Hygrade bottles, at least til they switched to the art deco design, were made at Illinois’ Streator factory, not sure exactly why the less-decorated bottle doesn’t have the diamond mark unless those are pre-1915.

The Scotch is also ABM but it’s my first pre-pro branded whisky, and I love how specific it is about being 16 “American” ounces.
