    Need help identifying this bottle

    Need some help my Dad dug this bottle years ago in a great dump all bottles were between 1860-1890. This is one I can't find anywhere on the web or eBay or this forum. It says C.A. MORRIS & Co York PA. I believe it to be a snap case mold medicine it is very crude has a applied top very crude and twisted. Any help would be appreciated is it rare what was it ? Thanks Guys and Gals

    From A History of York County, 1907

    C.A. Morris, druggist, founded 1823. Merged into Wm. Smith & Co. some time in the 1850s (possibly 1857).

    That is a darn nice bottle! I would put it in the 1850-1860 category.

    Looks early smooth base to me. I'd have to agree with Screwtop on this one, 1857-1865 or thereabouts. A good, clear close-up of the top would be nice.
