A couple of markings just above the frame screw. Perhaps an "L" in a circle and a "2" ?

It's my first C&R purchase with my 03FFL (for the layman, that means I recently got a license as a collector of old stuff).
Under $100 and the import marks are discreet and on the bottom of the barrel. From IOinc.

$5 per person, and the glass is yours to keep. There were 10(?) wines and 6(?) cheeses.
If you click on the pics, you can see some notes from me. The opinions stated are the opinions of the bloogger and in no way represent the opinions of my mom, Don, or Misty. Except for the one where we all agreed hands-down.

After the tasting, on the way to the Jeep, we heard music. We decided to follow the sound and stumbled upon a street party. When asked about the occasion for the party, one of the ladies at the beer table replied: "It's the 3rd Friday of the month!" Reason enough. You gotta love Florida.
Next month, Whole Foods is having "Beer Fest" as a fundraiser for our local public radio station (I think). Anyway, BEER! We'll be there.

anyone know why I can only post 5 pictures at a time?
A little $10 investment (?$ value, anyone?) I made in about 1989 or so. I had visions of this guy sitting on the dark wood desk of a stockbroker in the '20s where he used it to light is fat cigars. Also, I thought it was really cool!
I'll get some lighter fluid for it, and get some action shots later!

There was sanitation, fire starter, mustard, and most importantly: homebrew. Yep, it's strapple.
