    Is this genuine not modern repop?

    I've always loved the lyre mold Jenny Linds. So much more interesting than the basic calabash. Jim G

    bitters or whiskey

    Believe they sold liquor of various sorts in a few different containers. My mom had a cobalt cylinder with the same embossing only horizontal on the shoulder. Traded it for a good ink many years ago. It was a great window bottle that we dug locally back in the 70s.

    Is this genuine not modern repop?

    The iron pontil is a dead giveaway that it's the real Mccoy. I know of no repro with an iron pontil. Don't know what it's worth but it's not a common one and you sure as heck are going to recoup your dollar. Jim G

    Owl Drug Co.

    "Florida water" style owl drug? Interesting. I'm guessing that's not a common owl drug form, but I don't collect owl drug so I may be wrong. I just don't remember seeing one before. Jim G

    My Son's Metal Detecting Finds-Any Ideas

    Any chance for an old civil war encampment? I don't think the pinfire cartridge weapons were common much after the civil war. Once center fire and rimfire cartridges hit the market everything else fell by the wayside pretty quickly. Jim G

    The medicine is 1900 or earlier, so age wise, yes, there's potential. Jim G
