    Question about trading barrel heads

    I have an extra Buffalo Trace barrel head (new) and would like to trade it for another distillery for my collection. I already have Four Roses and makers Mark. Not sure if this post is allowed so sorry if it is not. PM me if interested.

    Re: Question about trading barrel heads

    Sweet! Just like trading baseball cards, but just a 'little' bulkier

    I've got a decent collection of barrel heads myself, but never even considered the idea of trading. Interesting!

    I don't have any spares though. I try to keep the count down because you can only hang so many on the wall before attracting too much wifely attention. I'd love to find some really old vintage ones though...

    I never really planned on getting into trading but somehow ended up with two. At $15 to mail them it's not something I want to do often. I have the same wifey issue.

    Re: Question about trading barrel heads

    I am going to try to start reproducing Michter's/Pennco barrel heads from Schaefferstown, PA. I have several barrels that I am taking measurements from to make a perfect reproduction. Any interest in having these? I can probably do $50 each for them.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: Question about trading barrel heads

    I'm happy I found this thread - I don't have any, but have been looking around trying to find a barrel head for display, and also because I want to get one to have our company logo put on to hang in our shop - we've got a round logo that I'd love to have on a barrel head.

    Anyone who can help or direct me, post up!

    Thank you sir! He was the man I was looking for - My honey used to work with his wife when he did the barrel for the queen.
