Nice find! Those Owl Drug Co bottles are quite collectible, they were a chain of drug stores in the western US and Canada. Yours looks like it was some sort of hair product.

Awesome, thanks for letting me know that...when I say "find" I mean I found it amongst all the other bottles I'm going through...I learned what a slick was finally and I'm seperating all the bottles I have that have no embossing and no labels with a disappearing seam line from the slicks with a seam that goes to the top...then I'm seperating all the embossed ones I have...it's quite a task...and since I'm finding out more people are interested in my insalators I'm gonna start going through them next, and that's gonna be a time consuming event....I need to clean my bottles and insulators but I don't want to damage them so I'm gonna research and ask about how to do that

Let the new owner clean them if they want - because all you’ll be able to do is wash them unless you pay to have them tumbled.

Here are a few I just seperated ...these all are embossed...anything stand out? Or should I take individual pics of every one from top to bottom? The listerine is my favorite

If you click on my name and look at my recent activity you will see a picture of a group of embossed bottles I have...I was curious if any stand out to you... for some reason my phone won't let me post pictures to anyone else after I sent my last reply

I had a look and didn't see any that stood out among the ones that I could identify, but the photo is too blurry to identify most of them.

I think instead of taking big blurry pics I'll just do one at a time...did you see the listerine bottle close ups? If so, I'd like to know what you think of it, and what you know about it...I value your opinion, and hope I don't bother you too much...this is all new to me, I never knew there were so many people into bottles like this... thank you

It's alright, no worries! The Listerine bottles are very common unfortunately, probably one of the most common bottles you can find in early 20th century dumps.

Are you serious!!! Ha ha ha ha ....I can't believe how ass backwards I am in the bottle world.... Man I hope you guys don't think I'm hopeless...i really thought that people would like that...I said in an earlier post that it was a favorite of mine and I don't think any one wanted to tell me it was worthless...I'm glad you told me tho, because I'm gonna laugh my self to sleep about that...
