Looks fine
... best way is pick it up and hold it in your hands.

... next best way is to hand it someone who has seen a bunch of them.

btw, nice flask

Sorry for the delay,bpuffer2000 first let me congratulate you on a historic quite valable piece of glass.Your bottle is listed in Mckearins book as the GI-22.
Goerge Mckearin also lists it in the group B of most desirable flasks 30 or less known.This bottle could easily be worth 2000.00 and up if listed properly.
There are members who are sellers here at this forum earlyglass,kungfufighter who could market this for you if you are selling .If not what a great find if you are a beginner or a serious collector.

It is described like this:

GI-22. Washington, classical bust similar to No.2 1I. Classical bust facing right. NOTE: Quart Aquamarine,Green, medium olive yellow
"BALTIMORE X GLASS. WORKS." The "S's" are reversed. There is some doubt as to whom this
heavy medial (E.D.) bust is intended to portray. It has been
generally listed as Taylor. However
there is a strong possibility it may be
intended for Henry Clay.





Here is a picture of the charts also.

There you go Bob,I have two very similar flasks one is slightly older then yours the other a little newer but the same mold maker made each of the Washington busts they have the identicle heavy medial molding lines on the side of the bottle.One of mine is from Bridgeton the other Baltimore but the Fells point glass works.The Bridgeton New Jersey bottle is on the left the Baltimore Fells point bottle is on the right.
