RARE YELLOW GREEN LONDON JOCKEY CLUBHOUSE GIN - BACKWARDS "ns"

JNH24. "LONDON / JOCKEY - CLUBHOUSE / GIN" - (MOTIF OF HORSE AND RIDER), bright yellow green, square, smooth base, 9 7/8"H x 3"W, applied mouth with original foil neck seal, about mint (light exterior wear and some scattered interior haze or contents residue). American, C. 1875, rare.

We have seen quite a few mold and color variations of the London Jockey Gin bottle over the years but to the best of my recollection, this is the first example that we have encountered with the backwards "Ns." And, as shown, this boldly embossed beauty is blown in an unusual shade of green with a distinct yellow cast. The bottle is fresh to the market from an old time collection that has not been seen for nearly thirty years. It is my understanding that the bottle was discovered in Vermont sometime in the 60s and tucked aside until just recently. This is truly a great bottle and an important find!
