Comments:Wow, what a great tray! Could not believe I was able to get this one for such a great price. Saw another one on eBay a couple of weeks before the Fink's Auction. The reserve was not met on the eBay one, so I contacted the seller. He said his reserve was $750. It was not in as nice a shape as this one, so I decided to wait for Fink's Auction. It worked out for me this time. Seems this Brewery was also Mob controlled and has history as a rival of Chicago's Capone Gang. You do see this tray on occasion, but condition is often an issue. A-B made a very similar tray - go here to get a side by side comparison.
