The big kahuna, California Clubhouse(t-119) was available for collectors to inspect at the Pomona show. I availed myself for a cursory inspection. There has been quite a bit of back and forth on this site in regards to the Clubhouse.
Just the facts:
This is the darkest example of the known Clubhouse fifths.
There are 10 known Clubhouse fifths, 9 intact - 1 with a repaired neck.
This was the last one found, 2002? Marin County redwood tree find??. It is not the one found in Virginia City- 1964, later owned by Doc. Ritz and currently still owned by Robert F.
The bottle is mint. There is not a "whack in the side" as I heard someone mention at the National.
Other relevant information?
When viewing the pictures of the bottle I suspected that it has been lightly cleaned, kinda had that mirror look. After holding the bottle I am not sure. Some character is evident on the glass surface that may have been removed with a "tumbling". If it has been cleaned, it has been done very lightly, and probably by hand.
Did not see any distractions other than a very light scratch on one side. No fleabites, potstones, really no excuses at all.... except that it is darker amber and has no whittle.
Check out the video at American Bottle Auctions bid site -- and good luck.
