American Bottle Auctions' two-part Auction #67, featuring the Ken Fee collection, will be held November 29, January 24

American Bottle Auctions’ Auction #67 will feature the Ken Fee collection of mostly Western bitters bottles, to include a rare blue Cassin’s Grape Brandy Bitters bottle (fourth from left).

Wonser’s USA Indian Root Bitters, an unusually shaped early San Francisco bottle in a bright aqua coloration, circa 1871-73, one of a dozen aqua examples known (est. $10,000 to $15,000).

N.B. Jacobs Rosenbaum Bitters San Francisco, circa 1864-1868, variant 2, the smaller size with the Rosenbaum name embossed, beautiful yellow with a lot of green (est. $3,000-$5,000).

Lacour’s Bitters Sarsapariphere; Louis Lacour and his fascination with the lighthouse is evident in this beautiful green early San Francisco bitters bottle in mint condition (est. $10,000-$20,000).

Chalmer’s Catawba Wine Bitters, a rare bottle in mint condition and one of only a dozen known, in the shape of a whiskey blown exclusively in aqua, circa 1872-1873 (est. $10,000-$20,000).

The two-part online-only auction will include a 150-year-old blue Cassin’s Grape Brandy Bitters bottle so rare that for years many doubted its very existence.

No one had seen Ken Fee’s collection of over 300 bottles in four decades. Many of the bottles are outstanding examples that should bring anywhere from a few hundred to many thousands of dollars.” ”

— Jeff Wichmann

SACRAMENTO, CALIF., UNITED STATES, September 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The legendary Ken Fee collection of mostly Western bitters bottles, to include a 150-year-old blue Cassin’s Grape Brandy Bitters bottle so rare that for years many doubted its very existence, will be sold across two online auctions by American Bottle Auctions in Auction #67. The first will be on Friday, November 29th; the second will be on January 24th, 2020.

“No one had seen Ken Fee’s collection of over 300 bottles in probably four decades,” said Jeff Wichmann of American Bottle Auctions, online at www.americanbottle.com. “It only came to light following his death this past November, and I’ve been working with the family ever since to sort through it all. Many of the bottles are outstanding examples that should bring anywhere from a few hundred to many thousands of dollars.”

The real prize, Wichmann said, is the Cassin’s bottle, which he thinks could sell for six figures. “There had been some speculation as to where he got it, but we now know he bought it in the 1960s from a fellow named Alan Wilson. Apparently, it was dug in Eureka, California and Wilson bought it from the guy who found it. He then sold it to Ken Fee for the princely sum of one thousand dollars, payable at one hundred dollars a month.” Fee later said, “When I first saw it, lying on an old pink towel at the family home in Salt Lake City, I had to do a double take. I didn’t really know for sure what I was looking at.”

Wichmann continued, “Call it sapphire or bluish teal. Look at a photo and you’ll be convinced that legends, no matter how long buried, can, in an instant, appear before your very eyes. We do know it’s the second, more functionally stable variant, thank you, with the corners not so ready to burst and every bit as perfect as the day it was made in the late 1860’s. Not a scratch on it.”

The Cassin’s Bitters is arguably the greatest Western bitters blown. Made in San Francisco in 1867 and 1868, its shape was meant to resemble a cello. The first variant of the bottle had thin corners and because of the fragility of the bottle only a couple remain intact today. The second variant eliminated the fragile lines of the bottle and more of these examples still survive today.

This example, however, is a marvel regardless of age or history, as it is the only example known in this unique blue color. In addition, the bottle is in mint condition with virtually no discernable flaws, a rarity for any bottle this old but especially important for the only blue Cassin’s known to date. It would be an iconic addition to any collection and is expected to bring $75,000-$100,000.

There are many other rare and important bitters bottles in the Ken Fee collection being offered. Here are just a few:

Wonser’s USA Indian Root Bitters. This unusually shaped early San Francisco bottle in a bright aqua coloration was probably blown between 1871-73. Only a dozen or so aqua examples are known, so they don’t come up often, and not in this mint condition. When it comes to strike, color, condition and rarity, it would be hard to top this iconic bottle (est. $10,000 to $15,000).
N.B. Jacobs Rosenbaum Bitters San Francisco. Here’s another early San Francisco bitters, circa 1864-1868, variant 2, the smaller size with the Rosenbaum name embossed on it. It’s a beautiful yellow with a good amount of green. The top is unusual as they usually had a tapered top with a ring type collar. This example has no taper and, in fact, no ring (est. $3,000-$5,000).
Lacour’s Bitters Sarsapariphere. Louis Lacour and his fascination with the lighthouse is evident in this early San Francisco bitters bottle in mint condition. It’s a beautiful green and is in about perfect condition, with some nice overall crudity. Lacour’s have become highly sought after in recent years. Prices have escalated in proportion to desirability (est. $10,000-$20,000).
Henley’s Wild Grape Root IXL Bitters. Henley and his partners had great success selling the oddly named IXL bitters product from 1868-1893, in quart bottles. That’s a long time, but many of those were later variants. The early colored example here is probably closer to 1868-78. Most were aqua but this one is an unusual green with crudity, in mint condition (est. $2,000-$4,000).
Chalmer’s Catawba Wine Bitters. Calmer’s Bitters used the grapes grown around the Sutter’s Mill, where gold was discovered in California. This rare bottle in mint condition is one of only a dozen known, in the shape of a whiskey blown exclusively in aqua and made from 1872-1873. The embossed Sutter’s Fort on the bottle adds a great amount of appeal (est. $10,000-$20,000).
Catawba Wine Bitters with an embossed cluster of grapes. It is known that Catawba grapes were grown in Ohio and it is thought these bottles were made for an Ohio concern. Some have the graphite pontil, including this one. Collectors love the distinctive embossing and colors they are found in. This example is in pristine condition, with a super drippy top (est. $2,500-$5,000).

American Bottle Auctions has reduced the buyer’s premium for this auction to 13 percent for everything purchased under $10,000, and a flat 10 percent for everything over that. Many of the bottles in the auction can be seen at the Roseville show in early November (in California). American Bottle Auctions will be at the event.

Standard auction rules will apply. American Bottle Auctions does not do callbacks but, rather, has a 10-minute rule that applies to bids at the end of the auction. In essence, every bidder has a last opportunity to make a last winning bid. An online printable color catalog will be available soon, and all of the lots will be photographed and displayed in pictures and a streaming video.

Every effort will be made to present the items as close as possible to the real bottle. Additional pictures or videos are available on request. Potential customers are encouraged to come by the American Bottle Auction showroom, for an in-person look at all the bottles in the sale, although an appointment must be made in advance. To schedule an appointment, call (800) 806-7722.

American Bottle Auctions is always accepting quality consignments for future sales. To consign a single bottle or an entire collection, you may call them toll-free, at 1-800-806-7722; or, you can e-mail them at info@americanbottle.com.

Important Civil War relics, including Confederate officer's sword, lead Milestone's Oct. 5 Military & Tribal Auction

U.S. Marine Corps Kaiser Model M38A1 ‘radio’ Jeep, 1964 date of delivery, numerous upgrades, comes with SN39 command radio. Estimate: $14,000-$16,000

World War II Nazi SS M33 dedication dagger, circa 1933-37, approx. 22cm double-edged blade; plus scabbard. Etched with German phrase meaning ‘My Honor Is Loyalty.’ Estimate: $7,000-$9,000

Timeline continues with selection of WWII Nazi items, Vietnam War Green Beret archive, USMC Jeep, much more

There’s never a shortage of interest in Civil War memorabilia. If anything, there are more collectors today than ever before. ”

— Chris Sammet, Co-Owner, Milestone Auctions

WILLOUGHBY, OHIO, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Milestone Auctions’ sleek new suburban-Cleveland gallery has been reaping accolades ever since opening its doors on July 27. Owners Chris Sammet and Miles King will once again roll out the red carpet to the new venue on October 5 as they welcome bidders to their 849-lot Fall Premier Military & Tribal Auction. All forms of bidding will be available, including live via the Internet.

With a timeline that runs from the 18th century through the Gulf War, the sale is packed with rare and historically important relics and weaponry from seven general categories: Antique Swords, Civil War, Spanish-American/World War I, World War II Nazi, World War II U.S., and World War II Japan.

“There’s never a shortage of interest in Civil War memorabilia,” said Chris Sammet. “If anything, there are more collectors today than ever before. It’s a war that is unforgettable, even now, 150 years after it ended.”

For their October 5 auction, Milestone will offer an outstanding selection that includes such highlights as an 1861 mammoth-plate albumen depicting the 8th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment. This remarkable image depicts troops and officers in an informal outdoor setting along with their mascot, “Old Abe” the battle eagle. History tells the story of how the soldiers of this regiment chipped in 25 cents each to buy the eagle (for $2.50) from Chief Sky, son of an Ojibwe chief, who wanted to sell the bird. The 8th Wisconsin later became known as Eagle Regiment because of their feathered companion. The framed photo measures 13½ by 9 inches (sight) and is estimated at $3,000-$5,000.

The highest-estimated Civil War sword in the sale is the one ID’d as having been the property of Confederate Captain C.P. Bowen of Company C, 30th Georgia Infantry. Bowen came from a military family and was the son of a War of 1812 hero. The younger Bowen’s name is etched on the beautiful presentation sword he carried by his side. Among the images etched on the blade is a stand with two variations of the Confederate flag. One of the best privately owned examples of a Confederate presentation sword, it is expected to sell for $10,000-$15,000.

Collectors specializing in World War II relics can approach the bidding action from several fronts, starting with Germany. Hundreds of Nazi pennants and flags; edged weapons, uniforms, caps, helmets, awards, medals and paraphernalia have been gathered for this auction. Among the highlights is a circa 1933-37 Nazi SS M33 dedication dagger with a 22cm-long double-edged blade and scabbard. The blade is etched with a German phrase that translates: “My Honor Is Loyalty.” The auction estimate is $7,000-$9,000.

Japanese World War II highlights include a grouping of items brought back by Seabee Ben Thompson of the 76th Construction Battalion. While overseas, Thompson picked up a canteen that is complete with its strap, suspension and metal stopper, as well as a fantastic Japanese helmet with original camo cover and net. Japanese kanji appears on the inside of the helmet, alongside an incised bugle. Both items have field tags identifying their owner as Thompson, of Company D, 3rd Platoon, 76th Seabee Batallion. “If you’re going to own just one Japanese helmet, this is the one to buy,” Chris Sammet said. The helmet and canteen are offered together with an original copy of the 76th Construction Battalion unit’s history. The lot is estimated at $2,500-$3,500.

An extremely rare World War II D-Day (June 6, 1944) Operation Neptune archive with a BIGOT ultra-top-secret classification was the property of Commander Frederick M. Cook of the U.S. Navy LCF-7 Landing Craft Flak. The lot contains 100 pages of ultra-rare operational orders pertaining to the Neptune phase of the D-Day Allied invasion of Europe. “I’ve seen subsections of this booklet offered for sale before, but never a complete operational plan,” said Sammet. The grouping comes to auction from Commander Cook’s family and has a $2,000-$4,000 estimate.

It will be easy to relive military adventures – or imagine that they happened – while driving a 1964 US Marine Corps Kaiser Model M38A1 Jeep. With a Willys Hurricane straight-4-cylinder F-head engine, this auction headliner also sports numerous upgrades and includes an SN39 command radio, which is stored in a waterproof cabinet at the rear of the vehicle. Restored to a very high standard, it’s ready for Sunday drives or a 4th of July parade. “It tops out at about 60 to 65 miles per hour. Just turn the key and go,” Sammet remarked. The Jeep is expected to make $14,000-$16,000 at auction.

Of all the heroic American outfits that served in Vietnam, none garner more respect than the U.S. Army Green Berets. The October 5 auction presents a rare opportunity to bid on an outstanding circa-1966 mini archive of Vietnam 5th Special Forces 1st Group items belonging to Gene W. Adams. The lot consists of a green beret with the unit’s patch, a Randall fighting knife with scabbard, an Airborne shoulder patch, and an album containing 99 photos, mostly in color and including several shots of Adams jumping from his aircraft. Beautifully preserved over several decades, the collection is estimated at $3,000-$4,000.

The team at Milestone Auctions looks forward to welcoming guests to their Saturday, October 5 auction at the company’s new location: 38198 Willoughby Parkway, Willoughby, Ohio 44094. Start time: 10 a.m. Eastern. All forms of bidding will be available, including live via the Internet through Milestone Auctions’ bidding platform or through LiveAuctioneers. For additional information, call 440-527-8060 or email info@milestoneauctions.com. Online: www.milestoneauctions.com

Queen's Award for International Exports winner warns of Brexit challenges

Clearly, we are worried that a hard or no-deal Brexit would affect the continued growth of our business, and our ability to expand further into European markets.”

— Nigel Biggs, CEO

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, September 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Representative Deputy Lieutenant for the London Borough of Ealing, Richard Kornicki presented the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade to Acton based business Rex London. Since 2012 the company’s exports – to more than 70 countries worldwide – have soared by more than 250%, accounting for around 55% of total sales last year. More than 60% of those international sales went to the EU – with France, Germany, Spain and Belgium being the key markets.

Rex London designs and sells gift and homeware products from its Acton Vale base, where it employs more than 70 people and produced a £12 million turnover in 2018.

Sales Director Nigel Biggs highlights the importance of staying connected with international customers, attributing Rex London’s successes to this outward facing strategy.

“We are excited and proud to receive this recognition of our hard work. We take a global outlook – with a particular focus on Europe. Our websites are fully translated into French, German and Spanish, and we participate in several European trade shows each year.

“Clearly, we are worried that a hard or no-deal Brexit would affect the continued growth of our business, and our ability to expand further into European markets. That’s why we have recently established bases in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium so we can sell direct to local retailers. This presence will also act as our foothold in the European Union should the UK leave without a deal – allowing us to avoid additional custom clearances while maintaining prompt delivery to our customers.”

Mr Biggs cautioned that any shift in order processing may have a long-term impact on staffing numbers in the UK operation.

Rupa Huq, Member of Parliament for the seat of Ealing Central and Acton, who was in attendance for the award presentation said “I’m delighted that Rex London has had royal recognition in the shape of a Queens Award. I’m really proud to be MP for the company, which employs 70 people in my constituency, with such an impressive turnover in such testing times – all from the heart of Acton. They started in 1981, a courageous move when the country was mired in recession and “Ghostown” by the Specials formed the soundtrack to the summer, but have gone from strength to strength ever since.

“In terms of standing up for small business I’ve been steadfast in resisting any form of Brexit and in particular fighting no deal – so with potentially challenging times ahead for our economy and society if we leave the European Union, long may Rex prosper.”

Our products can be purchased all over the world from small independent shops to galleries, museums, and large department stores.

Wunbit – Crypto Gaming Arcade

Users can play games on Wunbit, earn WUN token rewards and exchange them for money or cryptocurrencies

Wunbit Arcade uses smart contracts that run on the Ethereum blockchain, players will truly own in-game items, spend and earn cryptocurrency by playing games.

TALLINN, HARJU, ESTONIA, September 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wunbit OÜ Estonia-based launched a blockchain-based gaming platform that rewards users and players with tokens which can be traded for fiat currencies. The platform operates on provably fair algorithms, to make gaming activities fair for users. Wunbit will make the gaming experience a safe one with transparency and security for players at its core.

Carlos Oporto, Wunbit’s CEO opined:
“The iGaming and video gaming industries are attracting a lot of attention lately. The global video gaming market reached $134 billion in 2018. Projections indicate that the iGaming industry will generate more than $74 billion in 2023. But, these two industries have inherent challenges that make the market favor a small group of people and making it unfair for others.”

Most gamers are unable to earn from what they love to do. The market rewards huge game producers, eSports, and professionals. Most if not all casual players spend their time and money on games without producing returns. Online players are losing confidence in iGaming as many rogue platforms have made away with their funds. Many games are rigged as players cannot see the chances that they will win. And when they do, some platforms may even refuse to payout their rewards.

Wunbit seeks to reward players and give adequate visibility to developers. Users can spend and earn WUN tokens by playing from a wide variety of game genres available on the platform, such as Action, Adventure, Roulette, Puzzle, RPG, Shooter, Sports, and Strategy, among others.

The platform leverages secure APIs to connect games to the blockchain with smart contracts, allowing communication with the user’s wallet in a secure and transparent way. Through the games’ smart contracts, players can see the probability that they will win as it is available for everyone to see within the blockchain.

Winnings and rewards are automatically withdrawn to players’ wallets via the games' smart-contracts. Players can trade in-game rewards in the marketplace, or exchange their tokens for fiat currencies. Achievements are also very important for players, that’s why some games will allow users to save game-states and high-scores on the blockchain.

Game developers are welcome on Wunbit to make blockchain-based games with the tools available on the platform. Developers with the best games will be rewarded from time to time, this will encourage them to keep creating quality content while ensuring that their games gain proper visibility.

Private Sale will start on November 1, 2019. To know more about this revolutionary gaming platform, go to https://wunbit.com/
