Here are better pictures of dip mold bottle discussed in what is it? board. Also, appears to be freeblown demi base in crazy yellow olive and another freeblown or atleast pontiled base of light cobalt color. I will clean these up , I dug them and base of 1/2 pint double eagle in small area behind a house. There may be enough of the blue base to tell if it is mold blown or not. I have not found any other pieces of the bottle to know if it was embossed. Kind of don't want to know.

Nice finds Andy, now you are dating the bottle to the 1828 to 1840 time period based on his comrades found in the same area.

I actually got the dip mold bottle on e-bay a little while ago.[8D]

The color I'm seeing now makes me things You could narrow that baby down to New Hampshire, 1827 on the dot! lol Nice bottle... nice shards too, I would guess you have the base of a Harrison's Master ink in cobalt there...

The blue base looks to me like a base to a mineral water or soda.
