Fantastic Early Green M. B. & Co N. Y.

Just got this, might be my favorite bottle in my collection now. Pictures really don't do it justice. Almost mint condition, a nice early font, great embossing, tons of bubbles, a grooved donuty lip, great color. Somehow this thing isn't pontiled, it must've missed it by a year. I have another M. B. & Co marked 1861, and I've seen other bottles made with this older mold but they're aqua and have a newer looking blob, so I'm guessing this was made around 1855-1857, the aqua version with a slightly newer lip 1857-1861, and the 1861 mark version from 1861 onwards.

I guess I collect M. B. & Cos now. If you've got the 1861 bottle with the 1861 on the back instead of under NY, the aqua version of the older bottle, a better condition 1861 than I've got, or any other ones I don't have for that matter and you're looking to sell or trade shoot me a message!
