Hello
i have a dark green bottle that is embossed with”SP” on it. Other than a letter “X” on the bottom, there are no other markings. The seam stops half way up neck. There are lines running up and down the bottle on neck, like where the glass was stretched to form the bottle. I found this along Wabash River near Lafayette Indiana. Any ideas on what this bottle could be or how old it is?

I believe it's "JSP". Used to see those regularly. I always thought it was some type of food product like a sauce. Beautiful color.

The initials stand for Joseph. S. Pedersen, and the bottle contained malt extract. It dates to the latter decades of the 19th century, I'm not sure of an exact date range beyond that though.
