Legendary Barto’s Great Gun Bitters added to Fuss Collection

GreenBarto's_Fuss1 Sandor FussHi Ferdinand,

It was great to catch up with you in Baltimore. I look forward to my next visit to Peachridge in April!

Attached are a few phone pics of my new green Barto’s Great Gun Bitters from the Ring collection. It is the same one that is pictured in both the Ring/Ham bitter’s books. I have also included a picture of it in my case with my apricot Barto’s. Man, I love the Barto’s!

P.S. The Baltimore show was the just the best! I had a great time. It really is by far my favorite show and in my opinion the best in the country.
