This amber half-pint barrel flask (these are also found in the one pint size too) was produced during Grover Cleveland's 1892 Presidential campaign and is embossed OUR CHOICE / (two busts) / CLEVE & STEVE / NOVEMBER 8TH 92 / MARCH 4TH 93. On the reverse, superimposed over the barrel staves, is a rooster which was the symbol for the Democratic party in some Midwestern states at that time indicating that this is where these flasks were most likely produced. These flasks are listed in McKearin & Wilson (1978) as a portrait flask with the catalog number GI-124 and are one of the latest produced flasks the authors cataloged. This bottle was used to help illustrate the barrel flask bottle "type" on my Historic Bottle Website which is found at the following link: http://www.sha.org/bottle
