Just found a freak on ebay (from my neck of the woods) about 15 minutes before it closes. Unfortunately, this person is being rewarded by multiple bidders driving the price up. No mention of the fact that this is a Frankenstein.

Luckily, it is not the rarest bottles --- but still. Why? Why? Why? Currently at $41.00. May go up yet.

Sold for 41 plus shipping. Probably about ten times what it should have. Honestly, I wish people wouldn't be rewarded for modifying original artifacts without even the courtesy of being honest about it.

John is my Great Great Grandfather. While obviously I understand it’s an historical artifact, I also know my Grandma would have thought this was cool. The glass was never dyed by JWSWC.

I would have. But it’s my family history. Interested in where it is.
