Wouldn't 1857-65 put it in the Pontil time frame?LEON.

Those crude sharp snap case molds like this one were around in 1850 on from what I was told not sure if that is true but what I was told at a bottle show before this one is very crude."All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

I believe these come in OP also. And I do not believe them to be rare. In smooth base, I am going to guess in the $20 range since it is so clean. York Co. has a couple hard core guys that will spend $$$ if they don't have it or to keep someone else from getting it (not sure which!) and I have seen small clear meds from there bring a few hundred $.

Another thing to consider, although not applicable to the bottle in this thread, is that the very shape of some bottles precluded the use of a snap, so the pontil continued on in use out of necessity.

Yes. I have read somewhere that a few bottlers were still making Hutches into the early 20s because they either couldn't afford to change or just used what equipment they already had. And include me in the group that still uses a flip-phone. Smart phones are TOO smart in my opinion."Digging Up the Past --- One Bottle at a Time, Since 1969"
