Dug this one up a while back. Never got to researching it but was wondering it's age. Crown top if not visible and not acl.

If I remember correctly it was used in the canning of jams and jellies.

Yes, it was used in canning. Has that embossed line for use measure. Not sure if it still being sold in a bottle. Nice amber but still a lot of them coming out of the ground...

There were a lot of the Certo bottle made during the 40's-50's. They were used for household foods used to measure making of jelly,anf jams,and etc.
