    Until someone pipes in - I searched Google and found a bottle that looks close - it is hard to read the writing (reflection) on your bottle. Take a look at: EBAY: VINTAGE BROWN SEAGRAMS FEDERAL LAW FORBIDS BOTTLE CORK

    These are post prohibition. The "Federal Law Forbids" language was mandated from 1935 to approximately 1964, see Federal Law Forbids Sale or Reuse of this Bottle No collectibility in the eyes of the bottle guys, with very few exceptions. They are useful as dating markers. There may be date codes on the base...
