A Note on Condition: This mold always has a ground mouth. The mouth and neck also usually have chips and/or flakes that occurred during the shearing process or during the grinding. These pigs also usually have some wear on the sides. This example has no wear at all but does have chipping around 75% of the mouth. Here is a chance to get a nice example of this rare bottle at a fraction of the usual price.
