To whom it may concern,

I was hoping to find out some information about a vintage bottle that I purchased. The only data that I could find about the bottle was that 300 were made for a BBQ event that never occurred because the night before the party, JFK was assassinated. The bottle is embossed with a colorful label that says: Bottled for the Honorable Lyndon B. Johnson on the neck, and on the base there is a vice-presidential seal which says : Vice President of the United States. I believe this bottle is very rare based on what I have found online, but the data might not be accurate. Could you please let me know your thoughts about this. Thank you so very much for your time. I have attached a photo from the internet and can add more if needed of mine. They are identical.

Sincerely,

Dawn

    Hello, As a long time soda bottle collector, my understanding is that there were about 2000 bottles originally made for the event, however, not many have survived over the years. They are considered to be a rare and desirable bottle, with a value of approx. $500. There is also one "misprint" error bottle in existance. It is valued at $1000+. Is your bottle for sale?

    What is the misprint? I recently acquired a bottle at an estate sale.

    I have one of these bottles and am curious about the misprint. Do you know what it is? I might be willing to sell my bottle if someone is seriously interested.
