Just found this jug in my mother’s attic.  It appears to be a Redwing but I’m not certain as I can’t seem to find an image of one exactly like it online.

Can you help me determine its authenticity and potential value?

Thanks so very much,



Edward, you do indeed have a Red Wing 4 gallon shoulder jug.  This is an early shoulder jug most likely produced right around 1909 or so.  Value in perfect condition is between $125 & $150.  Al Kohlman
