Here is a better picture outside. Snowing today. Looks like a ladies leg whiskey bottle.

That American bottle-Anheuser Busch A/B mark discussion is a confusing one. I have bottles with each type of a-b mark on them and still am not sure who exactly made them! Great early AB eagle bottle Robbie.

I wonder how many branches there were, I had two from Forked River.
I know of a New Jersey bottling association Plainfield brsnch and New Brunswick branch bottles but no Anheuser busch mark. Forked River have the Eagle and the A embossed?

Very cool bottle! I dug an early E. Anheuser bottle from St. Louis down in Galveston once...thought it was pretty cool to dig such an early bottle from them down here.

Still ones like this. Maverick? No embossed city, state or numbers...just the A and Eagle symbol. Care for an old cold one? Snowing today.

I will certainly agree that my discussion of the AB/Connected mark on the base of beer bottles is VERY confusing. But I tried to cover all of the known information, and leave it up to other collectors and researchers to keep investigating this, and come up with their own conclusions. The truth is that sometimes we just simply do not know (with 100% certainty) the exact "written in stone" answers to some questions. I'm always looking for solid input from anyone on the AB/Connected mark!! Thanks guys! David Whitten (writer of the article in question, on glassbottlemarks.com)
