I went to the Ohio River today to find some arrowheads...zilch in that category. Instead, I found a Hosters Beer bottle from Columbus Ohio. 1920's most likely. The bottom was broke, but I found the piece, and it will glue perfectly. Next, I found a nice wide mouthed med, (not pictured) and several heart-breakers. Straight side coke from Nashville, broken cobalt blue med from Richmond, and several milk bottles from the local area. I then went to a nearby antique shop and bought some nice bottles. Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and a Wagner and Sons beer bottle from Columbus. I am very happy with the Wagner's, because it was in business from 1933-1937. Any idea how old the Pinkham's bottle is? Or the value for my finds? Thanks for lookin'!

Wagner's and Sons Brewing Company. That's the product!

I'd guess the Lydia Pinkham probably pre 1900. Unfortunately extremely Common & maybe worth $5.00. Pre Prohibition embossed but no paper label crown top Beers typically only worth about $5.00 unless obscure or rare or has a nice paper label intact. LEON.

Small correction: The Wagners bottle is marked AUGUST WAGNER AND SONS PRODUCT'S COMPANY. This means it was made between 1919 and 1933. AUGUST WAGNER AND SONS BREWING COMPANY was 1933 to 1937. I got the two mixed up.
