    Dr. Hostetters - two different bottles

    The one on the right I assume is older? It is slightly darker, has smaller lettering, it has two dots under the Dr. (while the other has a line), and the glass is not smooth. What manufacturing process made it rough like that?

    Rough mold would be my guess.

    ... or a cold mold.

    Is there any writing on the bottoms of the bottles.

    The one on the left looks like it is a tooled top and the one on the right an applied top. Hard to tell with the glare.

    The rough texture of your bottle was caused by being blown in to a cold mold, like first thing in the morning or shift change.
    It is most often refered to as Whittling.

    Yes, the darker bottle with rough glass has an M on the bottom. The other has what looks like a faint "'ll".

    Here are some better pictures of the areas you asked about.
