BOTTLED UNDER GOVERNMENT SUPERVISION ESPECIALLY FOR THE STOCKHOLDERS OF NATIONAL DISTILLERS CORP.

ANY INFO WOULD BE HELPFUL

There are a lot of bourbon lovers on this forum who could answer the question for you, check under Whisky Tastings, it's had 3400 views so it has a lot of attention, perhaps you could repost there also. I think that bottle is something quite rare and could indeed be worth something.

I have a case of this stuff unopened from my great aunt... we opened one of the bottles and found it quite good. :D I can't find much info on the producer and haven't considered selling any of her prohibition era liquor (of which there were boxes) so I don't know about value.
