    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 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!
