Union made strap side flask

I got a standard type 1/2 pint strapside flask yesterday. It has Gegistered Full 1/2 Pint with a circle slog plate on the front. Pretty common. BUT on the bottom it says UNION MADE. Is this also a normal thing or is it a little different? It is a nice honey amber color and crooked neck

Some days i'm a digging fool, Some days i'm just a fool digging! What willl I be today?

    It is a little different and I would much rather a bottle with a union label then without. It does not add a whole lot of value but does add some.

    Here is my single "union made" flask... clear, but the embossing is handsome.. it's my understanding, though, that the union made mark pretty much guarantees it's a 20th century bottle...

    Mike,
    I have seen some around here in CT that say Union Made Poughkeepsie.  They commonly came in clear here, actually never seen an amber one but the same strapside etc.  I would think the price would be about $10.  Keep digging Mike and finding those great trades.  Be Well.
