    Thanks for your message and reply. I hate bumping things but sometimes it's the only way. Overholt does sound like a Mennonite name. The origins are actually Oberholtzer. Indeed it seems to be drying...
  2. Old Overholt Medicinal Flask Date?

    I've had this bottle for a few years and dating it has been like a puzzle to me. Because the label says the whiskey was made 1912. It was medicinal, so by the time it aged, Prohibition would have...

    In an update to my own post, I.R.B.W. stands for Internal Revenue Bonded Warehouse. It means the building was highly secured, guarded, and held taxable product.

    I have an embossed Sloan's bottle without the label. That company was around way before the 50's. It started in the late 1800's. That label looks older than the 50's.

    It is weird that the S.H. Frederick Company isn't even mentioned on this site:
    189003

    I'm a member of Find-A-Grave.com and I believe the founder of the company is buried here. Especially since he...
  6. New Pickups- J. Kazmaier, D.P. Lowe, Dean's Bottling

    Recently I got a great deal on these three slug plate style embossed bottles from a local Ebay seller. First one is J. Kazmaier, Brewer, Altoona, PA. Seams stop halfway on the crown. Has D.O.C. 1243...

    Definitely bigger than the standard one. Yes I dug it back in the spring. I might hang onto this one.

    That's terrible. It's like someone hit each one of them just enough to take a piece out of them!

    Also wanted to add that the bottle is four sided square shape. Not sure if the photo was depicting that.

    I couldn't either. I've only known soda bottles to come from Braddock. I have one that says Higrade on the bottom and side.

    I've never seen one or heard of one. Definitely hold onto it. Wikipedia does speak of the existence of Howdy Ginger Ale starting in the 1960's.

    I love the old embossed slug plate type of bottles. My favorite is that one from Braddock, PA. Even has the address on it.

    Cobalt Blue Unknown Bottle

    I was wondering what type of contents this bottle would have in it. Or what glass maker it is. I've only ever found one of them. All it has on the bottom is a number 6, which could literally mean...

    Nice variety of colors, and some excellent photography using the natural light. Sometimes that gets overlooked here.

    Hazel-Atlas and Maryland glass marks get mistaken all the time. And btw, both companies were known for making a lot of cobalt blue glass items.

    Wow, that is a pretty rare one. I think that bottle is a keeper and so is your girlfriend if she is finding bottles like that! A shame about the chip on the bottom but still nice.

    It was made by Brockway. I have the exact same one and it was also found in Pennsylvania. I've never seen more than just the one in the woods. Even on Ebay I don't see many of this style. It's worth...

    Quality assurance didn't catch it. I'm curious what glass maker is on the bottom of it? I personally have about 18 Budweiser defect / sample bottles that never made it out of the factory lab.

    Use the wax but carefully. I've seen the results of some ugly wax jobs on Ebay.

    Selling in lots on Ebay would probably make them sell quicker. Shipping is so expensive now, would be more worth it for a buyer to get more than one bottle at a time.

    Nice medicine bottle. I have some from that era and I'm guessing it's 1890's because of those seams. The slugplate beer bottle is nice too.

    Hey I used to drink Sobe back when it first came out. Mostly I liked the coconut flavored one. I wonder if those nice bottles were partly the reason it was so expensive!

    I like the logo right in the center of the bottle. That one must have never had a label on it.

    Thanks for the warning. Sorry about your bottles. After hearing that I think I'll stick to vinegar.
