it says "16 27- eg 25" on the bottom. Not shure what thus means or if it is to anyone's help...

i know i should just shut up and wait for the experts but...
i would guess a decapitated blob top (+/-1900) would have little to no value.
that said, if you could find someone who collects Bayonne bottles they may be willing to pay for it (so close, i collect Jersey City which is the next town over, and the reason i chimed in)

i think its more common to find American bottles in Canada than it is to find Canadian bottles in the US

so I'm not really that surprised there'd be some in newfoundland

not familiar with that bottler but appears to be from Bayonne New Jersey and a soda bottle but not 100 % sure

That's pretty far from home! Probably brought up on a passing ship I would assume. Looks like an ABM crown top bottle but hard to say for sure without seeing the base. Probably dates to around the 20s or so.

16-27 could be the 16th week of 1927. Wish it had the top still on.

Great looking bottle ! Could probably be repaired by someone who knows how to do it.

Definitely looks like it'd be an early crown top. The "This Bottle Not To Be Sold" phrase was largely phased out during the 1910's and I would guess your decapitated example dates from around that time period.
