Howdy Guys and Gals,
I got a question for all you Civil War era buffs. One of my USA Hosp. Dept. bottles has got me curious. The bottle itself is nothing extaordinary. The embossment has me stumped! The bottle is a 9" Aqua Quart with the square collar lip. Judging from the base it is a Baltimore bottle. I have yet to see (on any of mine), or in any book, or on any internet information this type of embossment. There is no oval, however, the USA is in an arch and the HOSP. DEPT. is of the straight line variety? All my other Quarts are the two straight lines. The S in USA is also a different shape than on the other bottles. I know this can't be unique but is it more scarce? Any info, facts, or just best guesses would be welcomed and appreciated. Thanks, Kelley
