I acquired this bottle and followed up after buying it?! Hoping that I did not pick up a reproduction bottle. It looks good to me and has the right look and feel but I am not really very well versed with historical flasks.

I have the American Bottles and Flasks book by Mckearin/Wilson and it does not match any of the descriptions for the GV-3 through GV-6. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Larry

I can't tell what's front and back or a lot more from just the pics. You have the book so go to the back and compare it to #15 in the reproduction section.

Right on the money Eric. I do believe it is a repop. Sorry Larry if I mis-lead you in any way, hope you can get your money back. Check your book first to confirm that you agree with us.
