I have a Hoosier Beer Bottle with an Owens Illinois logo on the bottom (3 to the left, 6 to the right, 9 underneath) It also has G 11 included on the bottom.
From what little I know the "3 to the left" indicates Huntington, WV plant. The "6 to the right" (without a period) indicates 1936 / 1926.

Below are a couple pics of the bottle. I'm hoping for assistance dating this bottle.

I found it at my Grandfathers farm some 45+ yrs ago (along with a pristine Hoosier beer cone top can) Back then I sold the can for like $65.00, felt like I had hit the lottery ... lol.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'm pretty sure that's most likely 1936. definitely not 1926. 1946 could be a possibility. The Hoosier Cone top nowadays could be about $1,000.00 nowadays if Pristine or mint. LEON.
