Just bought this pontiled bottle from flea bay, with a super neat in making flaw. Does anybody know what this product was?? I realize some kind of medicine, but of what type, must have had some serious dope in it..............Andy

Hey Andy, looks like you have a good one if it's like the one in Matt Knapp's book. Is it aqua, 4 3/8" tall, rectangular with rolled lip? If so he values it at $170 - 180. Got a picture?

Hey Cows, that's the one, but the one I bought has a big gnarly glass inclusion in the side corner that was in the making. I just love crudities like that, I have searched almost everywhere and cannot find out what kind of medi it was. even Holsts pontiled medi guide didn't help.........Andy

have a thing for marks and mis-fits of glass and materials that ended up in or on bottles. There has been a lot of them. A lady that lives here in Camelot East, brought a little beer bottle to show me - the bird swing inside the bottle. A Neat and Dangerous defect. If it broke in filling - the pieces could do a lot of damage if swallowed. Another defect that is dangerous is a spike of glass created on the bottom of a jar made in the IS-62 press and blow process - when glass stuck to the hot plunger tip and lifted a glass spike on the bottom of a jar.

It looks like it could have been a pinch of glass that was dropped and blown against the side wall in the final blow. Hard to tell w/o a hands on inspection. RED M.
