Thanks Zach. I've searched online and I've been watching eBay, but I've not seen this particular glass with any history or value. No matter what any book or authority says, I think any shot is worth whatever you have to pay for it. Just like this Slow Jim shot, I'd never seen one like it and it was in a case in an antique mall. I couldn't exactly turn it down to get it cheaper at WalMart. When I see a shot that I like and want, I just pay what I have to pay if it's worth it to me. I've bought some very nice pre-pros at dirt cheap prices, and I've had to pay higher than average prices for some modern glasses. It just depends on my needs and the availability.
Thanks for you input and suggestions.
: ya...i have never seen one b4 ether "2000 shot glasses here" at the least....i would think it is worth 10-15 bucks......but could be worth alot more to the right person. shot glasses r worth all diff prices to diff ppl.....just depends on what they r looking for. i would try lookin it up on ebay.....that might give ya more of an idea....hope that helps.
: : I recently acquired a rose colored, flared shot glass that has a gently textured inner surface. It has the words "Tom Collins' Slow Jim" imprinted in white letters. There's also a white measuring line around the upper part of the glass. The markings are a glossy white - not etched. The glass is thin, but not quite as thin as a pre-pro. There is no manufacturer's mark on the bottom of the glass that I can discern. Well, there's a very faint mark on the bottom that could possibly be the Libby L inside a circle, but that's just a creative guess on my part. I'm thinking this glass might be from the 40's or 50's, but that's just a guess, too. I'm sure that I paid too much for it, but I bought it because I'd never seen another like it anywhere.
: : Does anyone have any idea what the age, origin, and value of this shot glass might be? Much thanks in advance for whatever information anyone can offer.
