    Nice find! That beats the more common generic medicinal flasks from that era!

    Thanks! I'll take a local Rx any day. Couldn't dig up anything on Zimmer though. There's a huge college of pharmacy here, so most of the local proprietors graduated from there. But can't find anything on a Zimmer. Could be an out-of-state bottle that someone discarded here.

    Cool find! That shoulder-embossed circle design definitely isn't common. Shame there isn't a city embossed, tough to narrow it down without any more information.
