    Hey Rat, here are a few obvious examples of applied tops.

    Some aren't quite as obvious, but in these two examples, you can see in the top where the neck was separated from the blowpipe.

    Some early tops are tooled, not in the sense of having been blown in a full height blowback mold where the top is actually part of the mold and tooled after removal from the mold and separation from the blowpipe, but where the bottle is separated from the blowpipe, then tooled by flaring in this case, or in others, rolled inwardly or outwardly.

    You're very welcome. The odds are a little less favorable on digging the earlier pieces in Kansas, but you never know. Hope springs eternal!

    Warf rat,

    I'm surprised no one has referred you to this site already; but if you are really eager to learn about identifying antique bottles chronologically, then you will be hard pressed to find a better resource.

    Go to https://sha.org/bottle/index.htm and start studying! You can also buy a 555-page book, but the information is all online and searchable.

    I found that site some time ago. That's a lot of reading and well... I studied it some. But for me it's just easer to find someone and ask questions. I'll just be a pest on this site. Thanks, Willong
