      Looks like the 1840s-1850s.

      I think that it has N.O. on it would make it a scarce bottle.

      DON'T NOT TRY CLEANING IT. That could be a valuable bottle and you should contact someone like Hecklers auctions or Ferdinand at Peachridge Glass or John Pastor with American Glass Gallery and inquire before you do anything like trying to sell it or clean it. A bottle can be quite valuable from that time period and it's all about rarity in color and condition. I paid $18. to a pair of old bottles at an estate sale a few years back and profited $6,500. on those two rare bottles, at auction.

      Wow...I really should proof read my comments before submitting them.
      It's also important that you do not pop any bubbles in antique glass as tempting as it might be to some. Those bubbles can be of value.

      THIS BOTTLE LIKELY A PRODUCT OF THE BALTIMORE WORKS. OF THE FEW KNOWN AT LEAST TWO WERE EXCAVATED IN VIRGINIA. Born in England, Massey's father was a brewer from Stoke who moved his family to Philadelphia when William was still quite young. Seeking a brewing apprenticeship, his first position was in Philadelphia's Gray's Brewery at Sixth above Chestnut. Eventually he found himself in the employ of M.L.Dawson as an agent selling malt liquors in the city of New Orleans. This was in the period before refrigeration when the vast number of beers consumed in the south were brewed in northern states and sold through agents like Massey. Apparently William's work was highly valued and he was offered a partnership in 1849. Massey is listed in New Orleans as early as 1846. By 1851, Massey, Poultney and Collins are listed as brewers at 214 Tchoupitoulas.

      SpiritBear was right on about the age. You found a winner, unless you bought it for $3K. LOL !

      You know, this is just a price estimate and it could fetch thousands more at auction it's the only one of it's color or better condition than other examples. I really liked the results of my American Glass Gallery auction. Those guys really can turn a bottle into some big profit.
