It's Hereditary tell them. My Brothers love it when I remind them we are related...Lol! My Father who i Love dearly said Bobby, I don't want you digging no dumps, it's poison! I know he is right. I am always careful. He is also 90+ years so he knows more than me.

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.
Not sure where to weigh in on this with regard to the mark. I have several soda/beer bottles with 26N, 27n, 29n and 26s. I think they are American Bottle co from their Newark Oh or Streator IL plants with the number representing the date. Here’s a chart from SHA. Thoughts?

Yes I believe Mr. Lockhart and his associates have the most current and accurate information built on the foundation of the researches indicated in the article. As my quart has the 29N for 1929, that seems correct to me.
Thanks for bringing this back into focus!...hahaha!

30s, 31s, 30n bottles were made in Streator and Newark, but American Bottle didn't own those plants then, Owens-Illinois bought the American plants in 1930.

Those letters you see above the O C are the letters on the back of the bottle, re: the patent date, etc.
