Hello,

This came from the ocean yesterday. Lots of bubbles, crudely applied lip. Strange that is says 3OL on the bottom yet holds 5oz (150ml). First of this kind for me. What did it contain?

To me, the base, color, sloppy collar and neck leads me to believe it's a medicine. What it contained is anyone's guess. However, it wouldn't surprise me if it was from Europe (just a suspicion looking at the applied top and collar). 30L may be the mold number for that bottle.

Looks like a classic British whiskey flask to me. I've dug a few embossed ones in Galveston.
