I found this snuff bottle in a creek bed along the UP railroad in Longview, TX. This sort of thing is out of my wheelhouse, so I would like some help giving it an approximate age range. Seam continues through the lip. The bottom has no dots or manufacturer markings. Bottom contains valve mark? Thanks in advance for the help.

Looks to me like it dates from the 1910s to the 1930s, beyond that I don't think it would be possible to narrow it down unfortunately. I'm not sure how long those rough machine scars were used in the US, here they remained in use into the 30s but the Americans did tend to adopt newer equipment a bit faster.

Welcome to the forum. It appears on the base that it has an "O" in a square. This is probably an Owens snuff made before the year 1929 when they merged with Illinois. This bottle is similar in shape to the ones used by Levi Garrett. Other companies probably used this type bottle also. Hope this helps. Buster
