Do you know what a bottle like that could be worth it is a I in the center of the diamond made in illinois around 1915, with owen scars at the bottom also, I think its a kinda rare bottle because size and color. They made smaller bottles with the diamond I made in mostly clear bottles and much smaller.

The I is very small, I did a little research on the bottle but cant find any prices or any of the same bottles.

As noted by the other forum members, the bottle unfortunately is not worth much. On a good day, $5. On a bad day you'd be lucky to be able to sell it. Not trying to be a downer...just being realistic.

If you search "large amber apothecary bottle" on eBay you will see a bunch of them for sale...for crazy prices that they are not actually selling at. I have an earlier one with a ground stopper I've been bringing to bottle shows for 3 years and no one has bought it for $5. I understand your distrust of my assessment of it's value...but trust me. I've been doing this for over 30 years.

Do you know what type of bottle it is?
Many times it comes from experience, the size, color, shape and lip are dead giveaways most of the time. Some diggers have come across them before - maybe not in that size though, but they have researched what they were and are happy to share what they know. This is why AB is such an important resource. Some real good bottle historians on here, myself not included.
