Question Rarity of fully intact 1924 Crush bottle?

I also posted this over in the Stories...forum. Found this while detecting today due to an adjacent high tone in the hole. Just curious if anyone had any insight on this bottle aside from the obvious. Seems like a fairly rare find, especially since it's fully intact (I don't see many when I search the 'Net for them). Thanks in advance.

The bottom/side reads: "MIN CONTENTS 6FL OZ PAT. JUL 15 1924"
The very bottom reads: "CRUSH BTC CO GREENSBORO NC"

I posted about this bottle in your other thread. Rarity? I'd say $5-10 from what I see online and at antique/flea markets.

That was one of the very first bottles I ever found, was in two pieces and i glued it back together. Since them I find them every now and then. They are a real treat to find!

Yes, looking forward to it. My son said he thought that sounded fun. The way this weather has been, it just might be Spring before we can figure something out though.

Awesome! We need to find an old farm property with plowed fields and all go hit it together. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
