This morning I am sending Jeff a few pictures of my Collection of Continental / Kinsey / Publicker stuff. I am very lucky to have Hundreds of Mint old Continental bottles, plus Barrel heads and cases of labeled and unlabeled Bottles and a Wooden 1909 Angelo Myers Wooden whiskey case that was given to me by a Man in NJ he found it sitting out for the trash man and got it and looking up stuff about Kinsey He read my writtings and gave it to me and even paid for the shipping as he said my writting is preserving History and he wanted it to come home to Pa! Once Jeff gets my Pictures he will put them here. I intend to leave these to The Getz when I am gone with a few exceptions the Kinsey Box will go to our Local Historic Society. So if you look and they are not up yet check back. 99% of my stuff is Continental

The Pictures are of Marjorie Lord from the old Make room for Daddy show she was a very Beautiful Lady and very much a Lady as a Kid I loved the show. As far as my Collection I told my Sister I want it to go to the Getz No Dam yard sales where people just get stuff to sell it I have no desire to sell it, it is History Living and when I am gone I just can imagin all the People looking at the Publicker Wing of the Museum! I have 3 other Barrel heads too 1 Corn whiskey 1 Whiskey and 1 Scotch Malt Mash! I have explosion proof Switches Promo all kinds of stuff I have been saving for History. It is amazing How few bottles are around even though Continental / Publicker was the worlds largest Distiller. Cheers

Jeff the Brown Center Bourbon was 86.6 Proof the white center bottle was 80 proof! Red crown bottles are very rare as I figuer most people bought it at the A&P and then just trashed it!
