Truly a great find. 1876 was a good year.
I did th history on this bottle. Has a lot to do with Arizona and Tombstone. I guess old Charles Conrad went bankrupt in 1883 because of debt the city manager of tombstone owed him so he sold to busch and the rest is history. The bottles back then were worth more than the bier. The bottle shortage of teh west was long so the bottles were re-used many times. This one still has the smell of bier in it. And yes there were other broken ones near by and probably some buried in an old privy on my land.

Must have been a typo. That's not a 1976 beer bottle.
