E. Kauffeld Pikes Pike Flask
Received this email and pictures from Jim Bender….
I am sending you a few photos of what is believed to be the rarest mold of a Pikes Peak flasks GX1-49. I had the rare chance to have this flask for a few days before I delivered it to it’s new owner a good friend of mine. The bottle is a quart with a light pink tint to it. It has only been in the hands of a few collectors over the past 100 years. It is know resting in its new home where it will be a very long time to come. It is believed to be a one of a kind. Thought it would be nice to share it with others who will never get to see it. Feel free to post it on your site as well as the FOHBC site.
