Default American Celebrated Stomach Bitters

Wondering if anyone knows much about this Bottle?? Found it in 1994 and have seen a lot of Hostetter Stomach Bitters but not much about this one. It's in perfect condition. Glasshopper????? Thanks.

Been digging bottles since 1977. Never heard of that one!

Just home from *major* surgery so just saw your post.

I did see this in one of my old price guides, printed 1998 so the price may not be relevant today:

Nice bottle . Not rare though and given common amber color and assuming no damage maybe a couple hundred bucks or little less.
