Pint strap sided flask with every letter blotted out. Thought maybe someone on the forum could match it up with one they have? It looks like two initials and the name "x x xxxxxx" / xxxxxx / xxxx . I was hoping the last two lines were city and state OHIO maybe? Any ideas?

try photo of bottle with solid color background then open in program like Windows Paint and invert the colors and then magnify.This may help identify letters that have not been completely peened out. I would start with a white background . I use this method to look for cracks & lightly embossed letters.Adjusting the hue and contrast may also help.

Thanks for the comments and ideas. No success thus far in taking better pictures or finding out more about the flask. Red Mathews - as for now it still remains a "bottle mystery"?
