    Re: 1917 Sherwood Whiskey - Acker, Merrall & Condit Co.

    I think it is original. Glass has lots of flaws not seen in post war manufacture. Seal on top indicates thicker foil, suggestive of pewter/lead. The handwritten part is not surprising to have not so much fading as India ink was common back then, and less fading would not have surprised me.

    Could that just be from when the bottle was made? It is odd though.

    Hard to say for sure but the blurb seems to imply that is when the whiskey was bottled and the tax stamp seems to say 1927. Just seemed a bit odd.
