which accounts for the OUR CENTENNIAL BEST
stamped top center to the lid(it's a good bet that the owner of the D. B. M. initials
that are grandly carved to the lid as well was at the top, 1.25" wide wood swing bail handle

woodbuttonhead (or mushroom) knobs that are
pegged to the inside

lid,top of bucket at the rim, and 2 at the tongue and groovedstaves, along with an army
of copper nails, brads, square nails and wood pegsperhaps the most uncommon attribute this firkin offers
is its degree of intactness and overall excellent condition,
especially considering its mammouth size -- the finish
appears original and only the carved initials to the lid
deviate from the original design, thoughto this seller,DBM
