    Sodabob -
    I found a first-issue patent 1920 clear crinky bottle. It's marked "O.C.B.W. Cortland, NY" with a Star of David on the bottom. No date code.
    Cortland, NY is 40 miles directly north of Binghamton, making it's closer than Oneonta.

The challenge is finding one with a makers mark and/or date code earlier than about 1924. The reason I chose 1924 is because I'm confident the following two links refer to confirmed 1924 examples ...

    These are the earliest 'confirmed?' examples I have been able to find - especially Morb's bottle. So far I have not been able to find a 'confirmed' 1920-1921-1922-1923. However, I still think that 1921 through 1923 examples 'might' exist. I base this on the numerous ads saying as much, especially this one dated ...

    The search continues for a confirmed 1920 through 1923 example ...

    I'm still having serious computer problems - with today being the first time in weeks that it hasn't crashed on me - at least not yet!
