    Weird SHARP & DOHME BALTIMORE MD. base-embossed

    I was wondering if this was a common example of a SHARP & DOHME BALTIMORE MD. medicine?

    It looks like an early threaded, tooled top, possibly the lip is ground? Base-embossed. Just dug it last weekend.

    Comments appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums. Doesn't look all that old but S & D are not ancient. The lip doesn't appear ground, I'd say early 1900.

    Lip is not ground but it is hand finished...similar to the screwtops you see on a lot of the earlier 1910's ketchups. I would date this 1910-1920. I've seen these with an aluminum dose cap. Fairly common.
