Default Trying again for bottle ID

I thought I would try once more to see if anyone can ID this bottle. It was found a few feet deep in an excavation site in Michigan.Name:  image.jpg

It is beer bottle from 1890-1910. They came with a porcelain stopper and wire bail to keep them airtight.Many regions and towns had locally brewed beers with there own bottles. Normally they are locally common and while neat finds usually carry minimal value. Local collectors may have the greatest interest. Amber(brown) ,like yours is a common color. Sometimes these beers come in cobalt blue or other rare colors that can dramatically affect value.As a past digger in the northeast I have dug hundreds of them. And they are always fun to find.

I STILL don't have any idea besides what I posted here back then. It sure is a cool looking bottle though!

I think the bottle is the right age as originally thought but you have the wrong closure for it identified.

Here is part of a bottle I found in the Detroit river last year.



It still has the metal closure in it with a rubber seal like a rubber band around it:



I find these seals all the time in Cass lake and in the Detroit river. Could never figure them out. Now I know.

The seal was called a Baltimore Loop Seal and was popular in some areas and not others. 1885 - 1905.

Here is an entire thread on it:

http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=249622

Bottle Mike in Detroit will know EXACTLY when that bottle was made and for what company. He is the leading expert in Michigan.

I probably can find him in my contacts if you stay stumped. I will find his information and send him a link to this thread. I called him. Great guy. Will be back with me.

Here is Mike's information:

still stumped? Interesting. I did a flurry of searches and came up with nothing on the brand logo.
Maybe it's Unheuser-Busch? Sideways pics bug me. Hope this helps...

The bottle clearly says Registered Trade Mark

what's on the bottom? You maybe able to track it from a symbol there like a jewelry makers mark

Sorry, bottle Mike never got back to me. I will rattle his cage one more time but if he doesn't know, it is probably not from Michigan. I believe it is from here though. I am hoping it is rare.

If you create an ID at the Rusty Bunch website and post in in General Discussion I'll bet you get an ID. They are beer can and bottle diggers/collectors, and one of the members, Leon, is from Detroit and digs a ton of pre-Prohibition beer bottles. Make sure you put Michigan in your header.

I posted a pic of your bottle on the antique-bottles site (I think Leon is a member there) and he didn't recognize it.

+1 what is on the base of the bottle?, that's a big piece of the puzzle...
