Has anyone seen a mid 1800's four square pepper sauce with a missing center panel? There are three panels on three sides pf the bottle, with
the center panel missing from the fourth side. Can't remember seeing this before, although this is my first pepper sauce bottle and I admittedly never paid close attention to the other ones i've seen.
Regards,
Kyle

Almost looks like it was peened or slug plated out. Wonder if the mold developed wear there?

That's wild. I don't remember seeing one before either.

Bottle molds wear out with use. A new mold may incorporate minor improvements such as more area for labels. Here's another variant:

This variant is the vertical bottle on the left in the second image. The second upright peppersauce bottle is pontil-scarred, and all four sides are identically embossed.
