Saw this on ebay. Seller says it's a modern cobalt warners. It doesn't look like the typical Frank's knockoff. The pictures are poor quality, but it almost looks like it is backlit with a blue light. Someone's bid $76 so either they didn't read carefully or they like repos. Could it be a rare clear version? Has anyone ever seen one like this?

It looks like it was done on a scanner. I've never heard of a cobalt Rochester or any other city. The collar looks like a may be a double collar but yes, the pics are horrible. I know the Franks but I think there were other repros. It would be cool to find a new cobalt variant though.

The double collar is what's unusual. I've heard of green, aqua and clear Warners K&L cures but have never seen one.
Here is typical green repo with a blob top. I asked the seller to post better pictures.

maybe a clear one that has been nuked..???I know that means it should be purple, but..Not all nuked bottles turn the same color...just a thought..[&:]

Looks like maybe a clear bottle that had some blueing in it. Hard to tell with the poor quality of those photos it could be anything.
Would you take a chance on a first time seller with crappy photos? I'd rather by a lotto ticket.

$180.00. And he`s calling it modern.Is modern 100 years or less?? It does look a little similar to a Bluing bottle around i`ve got around here somewhere...

That would be a crazy insane price for a piece of crownford junk.
