Found this one poking it's head up from under a tree while walking the dog the other day. It took a good bit of effort trying to dig it out of the hardened, sun-baked ground as all I had available were sticks and rocks to use as tools, so I had to call in reinforcements to bring a spade and some water. We got it out tho! It's obviously from Scottsbluff, NE but I'm having a little trouble dating it. The bottling company seems to have been called Bottling Works (rather than Company) until 1921, and there are bubbles in the glass and has a very heavy bottom and blop top so I do think it's 1900-1920 but want to be sure. Any help on this one?
