    What is it? Old or modern?

    I'm in the process of downsizing and sending things off to auction. Is this bottle something I should keep separate or just add it to
    a pile of common stuff? It's a green blown glass with a pontil mark on the bottom and has applied rings around the neck as well as the symbol in the middle.

    Could use more pictures, but my gut's telling me modern right off the bat.

    Thank you for you input. My gut tells me it's modern also. But, I am not a bottle collector or particularly knowledgeable on the subject. I have several medicinal
    bottles that I believe are collectible but this one stumped me.

    I can't tell from the pic, but it almost makes me think either a small inion style bottle or a saddle flask. Is the bottom flat or rounded?

    That is indeed a modern reproduction. That's the seal of the reproduction bottles that were sold to tourists in the 70s at Jamestown. https://www.google.ca/search?q=james...DcNFgiE3ug-TM:

    Concur. That's a Jamestown tourist offering. Heavy glass, a very consistent green. I had a mug they made that I used for years until it died. Neat stuff but not old.

    Thanks everyone for the input and indeed it is the Jamestown reproduction. Into the box of common things it will go.
