COLLECTING TIP

The condition of the bottle is everything !
I cannot stress enough, CONDITION !!!!!!!
Not just free of cracks or chips, but free
of all flaws such as case wear and scratches
One scratch can devalue the bottle as
much as 50%, often even more.
Case wear , mid-bottle rings is a deal
breaker if you want a "good condition"
bottle or "nice" bottle.  A bottle with a
scratch should not be called "very good
condition", because it's just not.
As a collector, you should strive to get
bottles that are in the very best condition.

Repairs are a deal breaker too.  Repairs
render the bottle virtually worthless to
a serious collector for a quality collection.

If you have a damaged bottle in your
collection, a bottle with even a small
scratch, you should be looking for an
upgrade.  Always be on the lookout for
upgrades and stay away from damaged
bottles if you want a quality collection.
Sometimes, to have a bottle, you will
have to start with a damaged bottle
just to have one, but do not be
satisfied with it and upgrade when
you can.  I'm in the process of trying
to upgrade my bottles even if they only
have one small flea bite.  So, if
it can be avoided, stay away from bottles
with scratches, flea bites, and other flaws.
Only buy a damaged bottle if you intend
to upgrade it as soon as you can .

Also, you need "clean" bottles, not
stained, not cloudy, not frosty, but
clean and clear bottles in your collection.

The bottom line is, condition affects value.
You should always try to have the best bottle
that you can find, and if you have one with
damage, as are some of mine, you should
always be looking for a better quality bottle
to replace it with so that you have the nicest
collection possible.  Don't settle for less than the best that you can find for your collection.
