Hi Jim, I don't know why it rotates the pictures but the top is a machine made crown top. Not sure how to rotate them either sorry, but the bottle is also 7 1/2" tall. I thik it dates around the 1910's.
It looks like a turn of the century Jackson California soda bottle, at least that's who J.T.Sherrer was. I do not know the value, and I think Markota's soda book is all blob tops. That's all I can help with.......Andy
I think you did ok, its probably worth that or more, especially if one was a collector of Jackson bottles or Crown Top Western sodas. Must be pretty rare cause I have only seen The Sherrers in blobs...Andy
