This bottles only markings are a strange circle with some letters on the bottom that I can't make out.
Possibly Codd made in Canada.
The glass has a ton of bubbles.
Any thoughts?

The circle is a suction scar from an early automatic bottle machine, probably from the 1910s or thereabouts. You're definitely right that it says Made in Canada, can't tell what it says above that though.

Thanks again for your knowledge! I've never seen that before. Clearly a newbie!
You're welcome! If you look closely you'll see a suction scar on the base of all ABM bottles. They're only as pronounced as the one on this bottle on the early ones though. And you're doing pretty well for a newbie already, finding embossed local druggists right off the bat isn't easy, especially outside of the major cities.
