Nice bottle . It is mold blown and dates 1880-1910. As far as rarity it is likely uncommon as are many local type medicinals. The condition is not great as is the case of many bottles that were buried in dumps where trash was burned and effected the soil acidity and etched the glass. The value in the listing given by a previous poster is likely for a mint undamaged bottle. At a bottle show I'd guess the value of your bottle to the right collector would be 30-50 dollars.

10-4 It doesn't even have to have been burned to look like that. Some soil is naturally acidic and sometimes other factors like ash in the dump causes that look. I know a lot of diggers that actually like that aged look and don't really like that clear "tumbled" look.

Thank, s for the help but the listing of value is not for that value of that bottle and dating is incorrect when the maker was only around 4years?

Yes however I would say as far as value my estimate is probably close . As I said there are literally thousands of " locally rare" patent medicines and rarity does not always translate into value . Now if were a rare color say cobalt blue then that's a very different story . But given condition and color of your bottle it likely will not carry much value to the average collector. As I said still a neat bottle ...just that it's not worth enough to quit your day job😄.
