Interesting to note the Table provided by the Bottle Research Group (Bill Lockhart, Bill Lindsey, Carol Serr, Pete Schulz, and Beau Schriever) is conflicting.
It shows that N is from Obear-Nester Glass Co. I have a Canadian Crush bottle made by this firm with the N inside a box as described in the table.
Check out what they show for American Bottle Co.
Interesting

That's what I first thought. There are Obear-Nester N without a square. I think earlier ones. Isn't the date code 2 numbers on the right side of the N in a square symbol.

Yes they indicate the N alone is earlier 1890's-1910?...but they question that, so it's not conclusive. My green quart has the matching mark to this bottle posted 29N, and my Canadian Crush with the N in a box has no # to the right.

Is the # below the N? If not to the right?

I know I have one or more like this. I can't remember which bottle. I will look at my crushys later. I wish companies kept better records.

Thought I would share the Green Mr.Crushy I got at the bottle show in Terre Haute today. Been looking for it for some time. Nice meeting Cokemanracer there. He had a booth there. Glad I went .View attachment 232591View attachment 232592 .

Very nice I’ve been very lucky to add the large and the small version of this bottle to my collection this year

THIS DESIGN PUTS ME IN MIND OF THE OLD PEPPER SAUCE BOTTLES. I CAN SEE WHY ITS WELL LIKED BY POST 1900 COLLECTORS....
