    Historical Flask Identification needed

    Someone on another forum posted this "Pittsburgh" flask they found and I wanted to see if anyone here knows what this is and whether it's old or a repro. Other side says "The American System".Click image for larger version.

    Pharm, I see there was another thread with one of these and that one was an Italian copy and looked ultra smooth and modern. Do you have any more info. about this one?
