Finally found an Amber milk this week in NE Pa. A People’s Milk quart from Buffalo, NY. Reed glass mfg. 1934 has some scratches and nicks and a big bruise on bottom. Happy to add my first to collection though.

Macjxl- do you have this one??

Thanks for posting Csa. There are (at least) 17 variations of Peoples Milk Co. amber quarts. 8 of them have the 70-78 E. Ferry St address like yours, another 8 have 1474 Main St address, & 1 has 1472-74 Main St address. That last one is the only one to not have the large P in the center of the slug plate. I suspect the Main St addresses are earlier. There is also a mix of straight bottles & bowling pin shape. Today (new year's day) is clear & sunny. I'll try to get some photo's before it gets too hot. Happy New Year collectors!

Thanks for the info. That’s a lot of variations. This small antique shop also had an amber Farner & Parker square Pyro quart from the 50s or so, but I like the embossed earlier bottles much better.

I don't know much about amber Milks but I do think that one is common as I had it & seen a few others. But if you got it as cheap as you said then good buy. LEON.

Was hoping it was a bit less common, but at least I have one now. Paid $12 so like you say Hemi, not a big investment.
