Hi All!
I have gotten a bunch of these over the years.. Both from my and my parents cocktails at the local Bay Area Trader Vic's Restraunts...

I have 3 different types of mug... Photos are Front / back / bottom..

I always assumed the one on the right was the oldest.. And at first I thought the one in the middle was a worn out version of the one on the left.. but then I noticed that it is stamed TRADER VICS on the bottom (like the one on the right) and painted.. where as the one on the left is unpainted bottom, and no stamp..

Anyone know when these different mugs were used???
Any info would be very cool!
Thanks!

Pretty sure the one on the left is the newest - I got one just like it at TV Beverly Hills a few weeks ago.

I've got one just like the middle one...at a Salvation Army here in Phoenix where the old Trader Vics was in Scottsdale--50 apiece they were ..only bought one. Should have picked up the two--think they closed the first Vics doen in the early 80s.
