    Can't Find Anything On It

    Got this bottle a few weeks ago in Maine from a friend who purchases dug bottles from diggers and resells them. I like the embossing and had never seen it before so I purchased it from him. Can't find anything on it. Looks before machine made with seam stopping at neck. Does anyone have any info about this Pine Cone Liniment bottle?

    I believe this bottle is not real common, Matt Knapp does not have it listed in his book on Patent Medicines. You might want to check with him.

    If you go back to the list of threads, there's a big grey button at the top that says "Start New Thread." Click on it and you can start a new thread. You're definitely right about it being old (probably about 100-120 years) and judging by the size of Elgin you're probably also right about it being quite rare, though I don't know if anyone here will know how it ranks in terms of rarity of Oregon drug store bottles. In general any individual drug store bottle will be a lot rarer than your average patent medicine bottle due to them only being used in one store.
