    Small brown 6 sided bottle

    Help. I need to know what to tag this bottle with to sell it. Or, better yet, it helps the sale. What was this bottle used for? Did it have paint on it? Scum on outside wont come off with the usual cleaners.Click image for larger version.

    Some sort of medicine probably. Hard to say what, these unembossed bottles from that era are not easy to identify.

    It is a type of bottle similar to a Squibb medicine. They are real hard to get clean. Try putting rice in it with hot soapy water and shake well.

    Oh those Squibb bottles contained mineral oil, didn't they? Yeah that stuff won't be easy to clean off for sure.

    Its sort of a red rust coating... Weird...not like a rusted lid. And, on the outside, nothing inside.
