I was excited to hear that Dale had acquired this nice example of a globby top Davy Crockett(t-73). I had just presumed that he had purchased the example that Bruce -aka "Kentucky Gem" was able to land as part of the old time collection as reported a couple of weeks ago. NOT SO FAST... it turns out there are two globby Davy's that have found new homes.
Bruce is more than thrilled to have added his Davy Crockett to the fold, and was/is in no hurry to send it down the line. I guess they had both of them at the Canyonville Show to do a little comparing.
A transitional era bottle, common with a tool top, only a very few known with a glob top.
Interesting that two examples would be reported within a week of each other.
I'm puttin on the old coon-skin cap and headin for the woods.... well, maybe I'll wait 'till next April... I'd sure like to find one of these.
