VERY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 ONE-SIXTH BARREL ISSUE IN THE YELLOW OCHRE SHADE.
Only six examples of this shade are recorded in the Priester census, and this is the only example we have offered since keeping computerized records. This brewery is in Morrisania N.Y., which is now part of the Bronx. It later became the David Mayer's Centennial Lager Bier Brewery, which burned down in 1881, was rebuilt, and burned again in 1884.
Ex Tolman. With 2006 P.F. certificate. Undercatalogued in Scott.
FINE APPEARANCE. ONLY TWO EXAMPLES OF THE 1870 HALF-BARREL IN THE BRICK RED COLOR ARE RECORDED. ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF THE ISSUE.
