    I was hiking today in Franklin Township, Somerset County, New Jersey when I found this bottle buried in a Farmer's old dumping pile at the edge of a former field.

    It's clear and embossed rather than having a label. I can't seem to locate another bottle that looks like it on the net so I'm not sure what year it's from. Closest thing I could find was a half gallon Dad's Root Beer jug that was also embossed. Everything else seems to have some sort of label. Below I've written out all the info that's embossed on the bottle. It also has a texture pattern like a barrel.

    Edit: @aghcollect Tipped me off in the comments that the 65 embossed on the bottom is actually the year code.
