I just found the bottle below in the ground close to the entrance of what according to stories I've heard is an old cave where a long time ago a distillery was for moonshine. I'm not sure whether it's true. I cleaned this bottle and it's an "Welch's" bottle, so I think it must be an old grape juice bottle.I searched already for more than hour online to see whether I could find a similar picture of the same bottle, but couldn't find anything. I cleaned the bottle really well and am able to read some numbers on the bottom. I attached 3 images I took to this post. Does anyone know anything about this, or could point me in the right direction to find more about this bottle?

Don't know much about it but would guess from the 1970's & not very valuable or collectible. LEON.

Appears to be a quart size bottle. Looks to be made in the 1960-70's. Welch's bottled juice, from the 1890's or earlier in a wide array of bottles from half pints up to gallons. It is not a high value bottle. Moonshiners in my area , used every type of household bottle available for their product. Thanks for showing it.
