Glass bottle found in Carteret, NJ. On the front it says "John A Quin, Carteret, NJ" on the bottom "E9L" on the back "This Bottle Not to be Sold". We tried looking it up on the internet, but nothing comes up. Does anyone have any more information about this bottle? Please see attached photos.

That appears to be a "blob top" beer bottle, likely dating from the 1890's-1910ish. Your bottle isn't listed on the sodasandbeers.com database and given the lack of information on it I'd imagine it's rather rare. The only scrap of information on John Quin I could locate is this short blurb from 1903 about him trying to franchise a trolley line in Woodbridge of all things (sorry the image quality is garbage, the scans on google were super poor quality).

I feel like I say this a lot but you really have to find local collectors. They will know at least a little something about your bottle. Try Facebook, local antiques shows, or maybe even an antiques store. That's a good bottle I would assume. Most Sodas from before 1900 or worth keeping at least.
