Hello all. Please be gentle this is my first post and I hope I'm putting this in the right place. I have been trying to research this bottle but I'm pretty confused. It's a Pittsburgh Brewing Co bottle with a giant capital p on the bottom but at heel mark of D.O.C 5-5. I can't make out what year it could be. Any help greatly appreciated. Also please tell me if I posted in the wrong place! Thanks.

D. O. Cunningham Glass company (the D.O.C. on the heel of the bottle) operated in Pittsburgh from 1880 to 1938. Your bottle is machine made, so it is after 1905. I would say probably late teens early 20s. You might could narrow it down some more with some info on the Pittsburgh Brewing Co. I believe a thread like this would typically be in the "what is it antique bottles after 1900" category, but people are too much of a stickler as long as where you post it relates to your question. Also, the people here are very knowledgeable and patient with rookies; I'm one myself.

Thank you! I am still learning how to read all the info..I even found a site about beer bottle but my head spins! Much appreciated!
