Here's an interesting error I just found on a Hemingray-made Crême de Menthe bottle from the 1890's. This one says "Grême de Menthe" (with a G). I specialize in Hemingray embossing errors, so this one now has a special place in my collection.

Hemingray also made similarly-shaped bottles embossed "Good Luck", so my best guess is they just finished making one of those and weren't paying attention. We'll probably never know...
