    Unique pontil bottle

    Here is a interesting bottle I traded for about 10 years ago.
    It has a pontil mark on the bottom.
    The bottom says BUCKSHUTEM, N.L.(backwards J)
    One side of the bottle says:
    DOCTOR TRAVIS
    HERB BITTERS
    WATER OF LIFE
    The other side is embossed with:
    GUARANTEED
    TO CURE GOUT
    CONSUMPTION
    DYSENTERY, ANKYLOSIS
    I searched on the Internet for Buckshutem and found several references to Buckshutem, N.J.
    It looks like to me they embossed the J backwards!

    Here is a closeup of the backwards J on the bottom.
    Can also see the pontil mark better.
