This milk bottle I found while digging and I thought it was peculiar because of the name. Asbestos. But I guess it ws still normal back then. Anyway apparently this is the rarest size and its different than the other pint I found because of whats in the little slugplates on the neck. The other says permit 78 and mine says Sealed B1. Any info or value would be apprieciated.
Thanks

There's a town in Quebec which was named Asbestos until they changed it a year or two ago (guess what their primary industry used to be!) It resulted in some milk bottles which would definitely raise some eyebrows today. Imagine trying to sell a product called Asbestos Ice Cream anytime after 1975 or so.

I didn't know there were any asbestos deposits in Maryland. Definitely wouldn't want to use that name for a dairy today, even if it was located in a place still called Asbestos Ridge.

I wonder if Corona is going to change the name of their beer? Lol!
