no haven't seen any in Ontario either but is a listing in book for Goderich Bottling works in Goderich so the bottler for sure existed in the town and operated there for some time

not sure how it would of ended up in BC ? not sure how another bottler could of reused it there ? unless they covered the front embossing over with a paper label ?

This is a Jamestown, North Dakota hutch I found today, but what is really strange, is that Jamestown, ND, is 1,000 + miles away from South Texas. I definitely have heard about bottles being hundreds of miles away from origin, but never expected to have that happen to me anytime soon. Very weird. I really don’t know what to think of this.

Why should that be unusual? People and goods travelled then too!

The Headless huch it is still cool you could always cut some of the top off and make it a drinking glass or make it a candle well worth keeping
Definitely not a intention of mine. Everything of this kind of grade of item is preserved and will eventually be donated to the county museum.

I wouldn't mess with it too much. I believe most if not all North Dakota embossed bottles, especially small towns, are pretty tough/rare even damaged. Might want to research it a bit.
Similar to Alaskan bottles. Bottles from the Northwestern part of the United States are rare and valuable because they simply are from a very rural part of the world.
Rural + American = Valuable.
