I have been collecting some of the TOC Anheuser bottles from the East Coast, and was wondering which was rarer- The Watertown NY bottle or New York (C. Meyer)? Also, If any of you have any uncommon extras you want to sell, let me know.

I don't know which of the two is rarer But i do have a nice amber AB blob listed on ebay right now.

Did a little research on the bottles on the web, and after browsing through 50 different sites, seems like the New York Meyer is a little scarcer than the Watertown branch according to Kovels archives. There is a cool site (bruce moseley) on the anheuser page, however, it is missing a big number of them. I dug a Richmond one which is semi-rare, but you can still find them once in a while at bottle shows. Any of you dig any not pictured on his website?

it's nice but not from the 1880's closer to the TOC

Get some glasses Lobey it says 1890s in the auction by the turn of the centuary most Baltimore brewerys were using crown top bottles.
