And about 30 other medicines, milks, and bottles not including ones after 1960. This does not include variations.
Also, the bottle posted at the bottom here: https://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/Can-anyone-tell-me-what-brand-this-was-m654673.aspx I did, though, add another Paul' Drinks today. :D

I don't know anything about Muskegon bottles but looks like you've found a nice assortment of them so far , once you start collecting you realise just how many different bottles there can be from one area, is always more than you though at first .

Well you have just blown me into a state of shock. I had no idea that you had all thiw agility to cover a terrific presentation of bottle information. As of yesterday - I was interested in your bottle interest - because of my 77 years of being into glass. All I can sway now is "Wow!!I could use some understanding of how to do some of the things you went through to put out such a great coverage of your accomplishment in this presentation. Clarence RED Mattews. am p;d ,man that needs to work on a book about glass made by the mouth blown process.I am proud of you Spirit!! RED M - with white hair.

Added another 1922 Paul's Drinks. Only difference is an "A" to the left (viewer's) of "ROOT" where the mold info (or whatever it is) be, which on my other is merely the identical number.

Here is one that eludes me albeit it's common: Early 1900s Muskegon Bottling Works shard.
It has the shape of a soda-pop but has the information of an alcohol-- "Generic" bottle?Not far from it, I found the wreckage of several grave stones, part of what appears to be a mausoleum, and several actual paintings dumped and wrecked. Not long before, just outside my yard I found this 1934 wheat lying atop some moss where it was thrust up by the ice of winter:

Eludes me also: Turns out to be a SQUEEZE bottle. I have two pieces to it. Separated by quite a distance-- outside of throwing distance.

As far as I'm concerned, it's in no way related to the Coca-Cola-owned Paul's Drinks. One hard quest to figure it out-- see it here.

Might as well continue with my one-stop source of Muskegon:
Mostly%2Bfrom%2BElmer%2B044.JPG
Here was an exciting thread for me on A. Eckermann. It's one of my favorite research-quests, so enjoy it if you haven't already. Circa 1881-1891.
Mostly%2Bfrom%2BElmer%2B002.JPG
1949 Highland Park Dairy bottle.
Mostly%2Bfrom%2BElmer%2B048.JPG
Lack's. This company was around from at least 1952 to 1959. I also own several cork-lined caps to their Cream Soda.
Mostly%2Bfrom%2BElmer%2B035.JPG
Circa 1899 to 1905 for the two largest (Tooled crown/ Baltimore Loop seal, both made by Streator Bottle & Glass Co. [S. B. & G. Co.] which went out in 1905.) The smallest at left is circa teens or twenties. The damaged-top one I know nothing on other than that it's either a blob or tooled. They're all Muskegon Bottling Works.

1920s-1930s bus token as well.

Great post Spirit Bear. Have you ever come across a nice Muskegon Maid ACL soda bottle? I had one a few years ago that I sold. Now I wish I had held onto it.
