My mother passed this on to me. I have tried to find out any information on this bottle and have had no luck. If anyone has information on it and knows it's value I'd appreciate the knowledge !

    Beer Bottle!
    1873 J. B. Coolahan established a brewery and bottlery on West Street in Annapolis, MD. The firm remained in business until at least 1910.
    Cool Piece! Dave

    I can't see the bottom if it has 422 on it, thens its Soda.

    Thanks for the information ! I goofed, the bottom of the bottle that I posted belongs to another bottle that I have ! I looked for a 422 or any other # and there isn't anything other than the "Registered' above the "JB Coolahan" Annapolis MD. ? It is a neet peice, but still wondering if it's worth anything. I will catch up with Reggie. Thanks again !

    We have a few of the J.B. Coolahan & M.B. Coolahan bottles. Since it's a family name, we hunt them up whenever we can! And Dave is right, it's a soda bottle from Annapolis. Yours is beautiful and a bit different from some of the ones we have. If you're ever interested in selling, please let us know! We have a place of honor on the top shelf of our living room cabinet. Either way, enjoy it! (ps we've never paid more than $20 for these hutchinson bottles)

    I will keep you in mind if I ever decide to sell it. I thinks it's kind of neet to have a piece of history in my house from a place I grew up in. ?

    I'd buy, I need more hutchinson's

    This was made BEFORE 1906, the U.S. goverment banned hutchinson bottles for being "un-sanitary", and because of the pure food and drug act, they had too stop. I'm a pretty good expert on bottles too. ;)

    Worth only 25 to 30 bucks to an average un-specific collector. It's worth 10 bucks more to a local collector.

    P.S. I would pay $21. XD
