For the most part all good milks are local milks. The exceptions I can think of are really early ones like the Thatcher milks and the ruby red Bordens. Milks that have no local connection like universal bottles generally have little value.

Milks very greatly in value. One of the biggest factory is rarity. Desired features adds to the value; glass color, great graphic, number of different label colors, shape and war slogans are some features that add value.
I don’t know how rare your local bottle is but it does have a unique design and that should help the value.

You might also find a two digit date code on the heel or base, sometimes they are hard to see and sometimes they just aren't there.
