      I didnt know enough about McCoy pottery to know about this early mark. I learned something new!

      This was more likely a jug for storing different types of liquids instead of just whiskey. I imagine it held water at some point in it's life. This is from the teens era . According to the Warman's Books, there are 3 different forms of these types of jugs, yours being the more typical one.
