Coon Collage

Postby Paladin » Tue May 08, 2012 3:51 am

I have what I call a Coon Collage. Also have a Coon coffee mug. I have had both for quite a while and there is a collector who may want them more than me.
I looked around on eBay and google but I didn't find any references.
Just wondered if any of you Coon Conniseurs had seen either of these sell recently and for how much.
As always, any info is appreciated.

Ray can you please tell me what the Maker's Mark has to do with Col. Coon ?

(Or did you just forget to put it away before taking that photo?) :mrgreen:

I seldom imbibe these days but if I do, it is my drink of choice.
I might offer that when I snapped that photo all in the photo was sitting in a display cabinet over the work area of my desk.
And why do I keep a bottle of Maker's Mark in the display? Note that the wax seal on top of the bottle is burnt orange wax rather than the standard red wax, that difference being due to the fact that the bottle is a commemorative celebrating the University of Texas being selected as the number 1 university in the USA relating to overall athletic program. There were only about 250 of those bottled and I was lucky enough to land one. Seems like that was about ten years ago.

I was wondering why it was double dipped but now that you tell me it's a Longhorn commerative bottle it all makes sense.

I may be interested in the coffee cup or even the picture. I think I have one of those knives to go with it and will look good on the wall. I am not into whiskey unless it is Irish ::nod:: Orange and White.......I am thinking Volunteers. But that is another story :lol:
I do not think this PM stuff is working or if it is I am getting snubbed ::td:: .
Post something here or I will contact you through your store. I got your email address here and I can find it if need be.

Thanks,
9ball ::handshake::

9ball,
No snub, I promise. My service went out yesterday afternoon and just now got back up and running.
I see that I have (1) Notification, whatever that might be. I'll check that and send a PM. If that doesn't reach you use the store.

It is not just you.......I just do not get "Notifications" or any kind of response to PM's. I just found one in there a member send last year something about a thread I posted something about on years ago. I did not know anything about it ::shrug::

I just assumed that since the site was in some kinda change over there were Kinks to be worked out, so to say.
