    Appraisal Transcript:
    APPRAISER: Well, this is an absolutely superb example of "Breweriana": anything from advertising to bar paraphernalia. In my opinion, it's one of the finest examples of what we call reverse lithograph decal transfer on glass. And I loved it because of the beautiful graphics. The colors pop. I mean, it really is a beautiful piece to look at.

    GUEST: I've always loved it.

    APPRAISER: And it's historic. And I know that one similar to this but not quite as good condition sold in 1995 at auction for $2,500. If this were to come up at sale in auction, I think we'd put a value somewhere between $2,500 and $3,500.

    GUEST: Well, that's great.
