OK, I think everyone is way off ...I'm looking for ballpark value on a
JOHN T. & WILLIAM H. DALY
NEW YORK bottle.
The only sale I can find for this bottle was on ebay for $10.50.
I would expect to pay quite a bit more for one of these in decent condition. I have included a website address from The Western Bottle News article describing it. This article suggests this bottle is common but it sure doesn't seem like it.
I'm asking for a friend who has one so I didn't include any pictures.
Any information, comments, or a value for this or a similar bottle would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Roy

We are talking about ANTIQUE BOTTLES.
I believe in most cases rarity definitely affects the value. I don't believe everything I read. I don't believe this bottle is very common. I do believe in doing my own research and in doing some research I came across this.
I would be interested in everyone's thoughts after looking at this screen shot from a 2011 auction.
