    Description

    Union Brewing Co and Whiskey Advertising Pins This colorful Whitehead and Hoag pre-prohibition pin advertisies the Union Brewery Co. of Peoria, Ill and their Bohemian Export. The wing-spread eagle carries the Union banner with a bold red and yellow background. The 2 1/4" pin is in excellent condition but with no backpaper. Pre- prohibition novelty items are rare and tough to find for the average brewery collector. The second pin offered is a whiskey advertising pin picturing the stage star Evelyn Nesbit Thaw who can be seen used as a model on many "Good For Trade" pocket mirrors. Here she is advertising Old Charter whiskey with the agen listed below her picture. The piece is in very good condition except for a slice in the celluloid on the right side. Both pins pictured are the same size and make a great pair. *

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
