    Two SUPER RARE N.J. script jugs... Paterson & Jersey City

    Thanks to a glitch on Facebook my old profile can't be accessed, but I was tagged in a post by Facebook and able to get in today. I was able to PM everyone who was suspicious and unwilling to accept my new friend request, and I was able to read thru about 75 messages left for me in the last month. One of those messages was from a friend who saw an A.L. Schwarz jug at an antique show in N.Y. state yesterday, but he didn't buy me the jug because I didn't respond since I couldn't see the message. He told me where the show was, and where the booth might be, so I Googled the location and sure enough the show was still there today.

    So I took the 1-1/2 hour drive and found the booth, and much to my delight the jug he shared was still there, and at a price that was fair. Then I looked up and my jaw dropped, there on the shelf above was another of ULTRA RARE NJ 1 gallon jug, the only known CHEMICAL script jug as far as I know. Amazingly I bought another 4 line variant of this same jug from a woman in Canada on Facebook 5 years ago. I asked about the jug and it's price, and the seller told me he has only ever seen one other on Ebay 5 or 6 years ago, and he priced his the same as the one he saw on Ebay. He said it was gone from Ebay so fast he knew it had to be rare. It turns out the one he saw was the one I got here, which I took down from Ebay and sold privately, so I made a deal for the pair of jugs.

    I am a big believer in karma, which is why I took the chance with 3 hours of drive time, and sure enough karma took care of me again. I will look to find the jug a new home, I figure it still has to be just as desirable being the only chemical script jug from any state I have ever seen. Pictured are the two jugs I got today side by side, the six 1/2 gallons I now own, the matching 4 gallon variant to the Schwarz jug I got today, and a side by side of the two Wuestner's jugs from Jersey City N.J., the one I got here is on the left, and the new one on the right...

    That's a fine collection you've put together. What are their ages, out of curiosity?

    Those are beauties, Jim, especially the Dry Plate Works pair. This old letterhead loves the brushwork in the script on 'em.
