So single use bottles started around the lateI could barely make out writing on 5 but it says re-use of this bottle is prohibited, just not the "federal law prohibits..." that I typically see on bottles! Just worded differently
I myself am a beginner as well. I just know a whole bunch about the bottle terminology and such. The main thing you want to look for on bottles is whether or not the mold seam stops short of the lip or if it goes all the way up. If the seam stops short of the neck, it is an applied top that usually dates to pre-1920. Another way you can tell if a bottle is an applied top is if the lip is uneven or has a different texture from the rest of the bottle. I've been told that not all applied lips were created equally and to never use the term "BIMAL" (blown in mold, applied lip) as an overarching term. There are differences, I just happen to not know what they are.That last one......yea I don't know what's up with that language! I was trying to say I need some education on what to look for, what methods of bottle making leave which marks, etc! Is there a site or a graphic of some kind of a timeline as to which method leaves which marks?
