We are in new at this. My son & I just found some old bottles. One is approximately 4" tall and about 1 inch square with wording on 3 sides. They say, Dr. C.P. Duncan & Co. , Duncans, Worm Syrup. I have not found anything on the internet except that there was a Dr. C.P. Duncan in Madison Co, TN in the mid to late 1800's. The bottle was found in Nashville, TN.

Another one is rectangle, also about 4" tall. There is no part of label left, but on the narrow sides it says L. M. Green and Woodbury, N.J.

A small one about 1 - 1 1/2" is round and the only lettering is McC on the bottom. I found that those markings are for manufacturer William McCully & Co, Pittsburgh, PA 1841-1886. All would have had corks. Any further info on any of them would be appreciated.

The L.M.GREEN from WOODBURY is quite common bottle here in southern New Jersey they are from 1880s to about the turn of the century I have at least three different sizes mostly with L.M.GREEN on one side and WOODBURY N.J. on the other side. I think this is the bottle you have still anything over 100 years old is neat.

Yes, that looks like the one I have. These were in an old dump site that is being excavated for a building. It is unbelievable how many were there of different kinds and broken. Such a shame.

Thanks. The L.M. Green bottle seems to match mine.
