It is possible it is from them. They did have an eagle on the front of some of their bottles. They were in business from 1904 - 1918. A good chance this is a rare bottle.

That is close (but without the "U") but it's also possible. If so, it may be a rare variation only used by them for only a very short time. With that type of top it would have to be close to the 1904 period as crown tops were starting to be used at that time too.

It's also possible, though, that while it was found in Michigan, it may have been from elsewhere and just consumed there.
