Your info is invaluable! Certain makers with the many mergers and new plants can get quite hard to follow. But between your work, the SHA stuff and earlier material at least newbies like me have some excellent historical info.

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)
I am the one confused. Not the information. I love your site and use it often.

Hey Hogtown Hunter,

You are refreshingly consistent. ...Now if you'll excuse me, I believe I'm thirsty.

I like Bud Lights and I cannot lie.
Lol
Sorry. Too many modern Anheuser bottles tonight. Lol

The conjoined AB mark continues to confuse. Julian Toulouse's "Bottle Makers and Their Marks" which was written by a bottle industry insider in 1971 says that it was Adolphus Busch 1904-1907. ABGMCo (Adolphus Busch Glass Manufacturing Company) was their more common mark used from 1886-1928. But there are lots of other opinions out there about the AB conjoined mark. I like Toulouse because he knew a lot of the people who knew the histories.
Hey RB et al,
Can't beat American classics like this one! Question- When did the conjoined AB show up as their base mark? '20s? Thanks.
