I have posted the next four together. They were all found last weekend river diving in California. Thanks for all the help forum participants give. I always learn from these exchanges. Jerry

The first bottle is here: It has an applied top and no seams. From my last post I would go with turn mold 1870-1900 and a wine or ale bottle. it is smaller than the one in my previous post.

The next is a clear bottle. It had a yellow liquid in it, a cork and white residue in the liquid.

Next is a bottle with a modern looking top, but it seems to be applied, a seam from the bottom that goes to the neck and another seam, offset that goes to and through the top. The same pattern is on the other side. The base has been applied separately

And last has an applied top, a seam that does not go through the top, N & Co on the base and what looks to be 0 . 6 where the dot has an indentation.. Thanks for looking at these and giving me your thoughts about them.

Second I'd guess to be toilet water or something similar. The sort of thing that Colgate would make.
Third is an ABM bottle, and does not have an applied top. It probably isn't from the US. Hard to give any info on it beyond that. Apart from it having probably contained some sort of drink.
Fourth is a weird one, never seen that design before. The top is typically seen on what I call champagne bottles, so I assume yours is a wine although it's shaped differently than the others I've seen with that style of top.

Thanks CB. toilet water would make sense. Ale bottles from Europe turn up where I dive. They were imported for gold rush miners. When you said the fourth, were you referring to the one with pictures labeled fifth bottle, or pictures labeled fourth bottle?

Oh I meant the picture labeled fifth bottle, I didn't read the labels and was just referring to their position in the posts.

Thanks CB, The fifth bottle also has quite a few air bubbles. My guess is foreign wine bottle. Any thoughts as to why the bottle labeled fourth bottle (third post in the sequence) has an offset seam? That seems very strange.
