Old Overholt 100 Pf. Bonded 1943

Unread postby citydweller » Tue Jun 14, 2011 4:23 pm

This is likely my best find ever. Comments are appreciated, couldn't find another old 100 proof out there. Bottled in 1943 as shown, but I can't make out the barrel date. Anyone else? It might be available...

The side label is much more readable posted here than it was in my laptop. What I see is:

MADE:

SPRING
193?

BOTTLED:

FALL
1943

What's it worth?

I can't afford to keep and drink it, as much as I'd like to. I have a bottle of 1946 John Begg that's sitting on a shelf waiting for the day my wife and I settle on a home we can own for ourselves, and everything else that comes along in the meantime is up for grabs.
