    Found a torpedo. Info anyone?

    Still no feed back. It just makes scence to have it in your collection for that price. It has an applied tooled finish, and there is /or must be a pontil mark - so I would have purchased it. I think it should be worth twice that - in todays market - even if the economy sucks right now. RED...

    here's some more will post what I found today after supper hopefully I'll get some feed back

    Jamie; The first thing to do is - look at the top closure glass section of the bottle. If it has vertical seams on it - it was made on an ABM, Automatic Bottle Machine. If it was it doesn't have value.Bottles that were hand blown on a blow pipe Have value - they will also have a pontil mark...
