With bottles like this it's interesting to think about what it was used for. That very bottle could have treated the pain of a wounded soldier.

I got it off a dealer of civil war relics Bob vicksburg who lives in vicksburg, Mississippi. It could just be a term he uses for all medicine bottles. They sell better is my guess. He knows his stuff so I always take his word for it. I still love the bottle no matter what it held in it's past.

It is a cool bottle...made in a dip mold (like early case gins). The few of these I have dug over the years have been in 1840's stuff.

I've been meaning to buy one of his bottles for a while now, but I keep using the money for others things from Gettysburg, etc. Great piece, I love the color!

That's good information thanks. I have a bunch of civil war private property dug relics. Pipes, bullets, bottles and inks. I have to do a civil war post. Good stuff buddy. Thanks again nhpharm.
