Around 1905-1929 AB connected mark was adopted as the standard mark on the base of generic beer used by American Bottle company.UncleBruce , I’m not trying to hijack LA313’s post , but figured your knowledge on the subject could help us all. I’ve always heard as ROBBYBOBBY64 said that these were made by Adolphus Busch Glass Manufacturing Company. Were these used for products of Adolphus Busch or were they sold to other independent bottlers ? It’s always kind of been a mystery to me .
Didn't know they have AB heel marked hutchinson. Now I have to check mine. Never know. Several from Minnesota and other areas, what ever that means. Love it!Thanks Robby ! Great info brother , I read the link you posted and I’ll have to check all the base codes now !
