Tap Handles...

(Refer to my Grading Chart and item descriptions for condition of items.)

I do not grade anything as "10". I find advertising items are rarely "perfect".

(Refer to my Ordering Page for shipping and payment information - never a handling charge.)

Orders or inquires, send e-mail to beertaps@ptd.net

Note: All tap handles are functional for standard US beer dispensing systems unless otherwise noted. Any used taps have been thoroughly cleaned and are ready for collection display or functional use. I do not collect or sell any customized or homemade taps that are currently flooding ebay.
