Jerry Forbes (Carmel, California) and I just finished the FOHBC Memphis National Show. As usual, Jerry has done phenomenal. He sold well and purchased well. Look at this photograph of some of his goodies just taken in his hotel room.

    That picture sure brings back some memories of the bottle lineups Ken, Jerry, Mike and I had at the 2008 York Expo show.
    Hopefully someone will post some pictures taken at the Memphis National show, it would be fun to see more of the offerings!

    A most unusual Old Sachems. I’ve never seen an example with a tapered collar top, looks more like a Robacks.

  3. Good catch Warren. Roback’s it is. Didn’t have my coffee yet 🙂
