Look on the bottle of the bottles and then search online for maker's marks. Also, the seams and other identifying marks could date them for you. I use sha.org a lot. https://sha.org/bottle/makersmarks.htm and https://www.glassbottlemarks.com/bottlemarks/
Thanks for that site...problem is these and others have no markings at all. Guess seams and tops are the only help. I know tri molds were done in a certain time period. Guess I’ll go off that, thanks again!!

Your earlier photos show bottles that look like they're from around 1880-1910. Hard to know exactly without markings.
I'm pretty sure Rex stands for something other than Rexall, I think it might have been a maker or distributor of pharmacy bottles.
And no that's not a pontil, it's an Owens scar on an early ABM bottle.

Thanks for that!
And yes I found that the Rex Trademark in cursive was occasionally seen on The base of clear prescription bottles from 1896-1910. Glassmaker from Illinois
