Looking for info on this one. "J.H. Tienken Wilmington N.C." on front slug plate, "This Bottle Not to be Sold" on back, "C 6" on bottom. Found info on the brewery on line, little known brewery in Wilmington around 1885. Have seen one bottle embossed "J. Haar & Tienken" that looked similar. Bottle is mint, a beautiful golden amber. Also, what is the time frame for "This Bottle Not to be Sold" on bottles.

Hellacious! Beautiful bottle. TBNTBS or variations appear on pontiled sodas up through crown tops, but on yours, I'm guessing 1880s. Fine southern piece of glass. Thanks for sharing it with us.
