Yes, it's old. Probably 1880's-1890's. It was a medicine bottle. We call those slicks, because it has no embossing.

Price would be $1 at the most unfortunately, if you can find someone to buy it. Collectors don't generally want bottles like that, they want ones with embossing.

I throw many slicks like that back in the hole. Unfortunately maybe worth $1.00

Ditto what Canadian and Hemi said. A buck, IF you can find someone to pay it. Or just give away to new collectors, with a quick lesson on its age and how it was made.
