The 58 on the Bottom could be a date. LEON.

P.S. These painted label bottles known as ACL's usually date from the 40's & 50's.

Some one was telling me the bottle dates 1910 but I don’t think so because of the seam that goes all the way down. I am trying to learn. I am going to want to sell all of them as soon as I get them all cleaned up!

1910 LOL, That's funny, I don't think the Process or Technique used to make Applied Color Labels (acl) existed until around 1935. But Sodapopbob would know more on that but He's been AWOL or MIA lately. LEON.

That info is good for Dating Owens Illinois Bottles, which is probably one of the most popular most widely used bottle manufacturer & much info on deciferering there codes out there, BUT, The Bottle original Poster Posted not a Owens Illinois Bottle. Where SodapopBob when you need him? LEON.

p.s. the above bottle appears to be made by Knox.
