An eBay seller realized that her cobalt blue pig-shaped whiskey bottle was rare, so she put it up for sale earlier this month (May 2013) for $1,200, a little lower than the price paid for a similar amber bottle a few years ago. The cobalt blue bottle sold quickly at her "Buy It Now" price. It's embossed with a crescent moon and the words "Duffy Crescent Saloon, 204 Jefferson Street, Louisville, Ky." An aqua version, one of two known, has sold for $2,800. No other cobalt blue bottle is known--but other rare blue bottles are very expensive. Some say the cobalt blue pig bottle could be worth $100,000. So somebody out there found a great eBay bargain. (American Bottle Auctions, Jeff Wichmann)
