Never seen one of these before... i have seen/have quarts but never a one gallon. Is this thing legit?
Plus look at how the seller got the top removed. Filprufs are pretty much impossible to get the top off without breaking.

I was gonna say no no no. But the bottle has the snap ring groove?? What else could it be?

had one of these I bought at a garage sale for 50. & the guy who had it talked me into buying it-
there is a wire cage that goes around this that this one is missing- was offered close too what this one is being offered at and down the road it went- VERY RARE -
this is 100% legit, one of the Laurel & Hardy movies shows this bottle in the gas station scene.. cool

Good information. Thought it looked ok but the fired on gargoyle threw me. The quarts are embossed and thought this one would be the same.

One sold at Reed's a couple years ago @ less than 1/2 of this seller asking price. This one is Missing all the Inner pieces inside spout.
I was 10 minutes to late.

They did make them. I spoke with Ron Throckmorten who has several and I believe he is the authority on these. I can't speak to the legitimacy of this particular bottle but I'm 100% sure that they did make them.
