MD-2014 Super Example Glob Top Fifth. Pioneer Bear
Here is a fantastic example of this ever popular San Francisco whiskey.
This amber fifth has a crooked neck and drippy applied top. It is embossed "Wm. H. Spears & Co.Old Pioneer Whiskey ( Bear) A. Fenkhausen & Co.Sole Agents, S.F." The embossing on this one is very bold, and not washed out like the majority of these. This one has only the tiny 1/2" X 1/2" mold patch on the reverse, and not the large mold repair like almost all of these. As a matter of fact, the more rare "Two Named bear" has this particular feature leading me to believe this is the earliest version of the "One Named bear". The sharp embossing confirms this too. Condition is about mint with no damage...not even a scratch. Never cleaned, there is only a small 1/8" onion skin bubble on the base edge...this is a super example of this whiskey.
