Looking for the possible value of this bottle. I found it during an internal demolition on an old building in downtown Seattle.

I'm having trouble reading the writing on it , might help if you posted all the info

but as seattle is a large city , unless its really uncommon I doubt its worth more than average

Clear medicine bottles from large metropolitan areas tend to be more common and not very many folks collect them. I have noticed that when someone is collecting medicines from a state they want small towns. Demand overall is very mild unless they are colored or have some kind of interesting figure embossed on them like Owl Drug. I have always felt that these are highly overlooked by collectors and I don't know why. I pick up a lot of them and just store them away. Maybe some day they will be appreciated.

I find here most druggist bottles are highly collectable and hard to find with the exception of some of the common ones from Toronto ( our largest city ) , you often see them for sale in antique malls for a long time so called stale merchandise


the ones from small towns would be especially hard to find , some I've never even seen in person before and rarely see online

Great history with this bottle. That and being from the west as others mentioned. I did find a photo of the interior and a menu from guys.
