I'm 17 years old and fairly new with finding bottles (Just started this year) Although I've found well over one hundred bottles I consider myself a noob. But I found these out in the back yard along with countless others and I wanted to know what they were. My house is 112 years old built in 1900. Could anyone tell me? Thanks.

    For a "noob" you are doing a pretty good job. Others have posted lesser finds than these beauties. Sorry I am not up on glassware but someone will fill you in. Keep up the good work and show us more of your finds.

    I have quite a few old bottles myself, and they are hard to identify-good luck

    i do know these are called "stubbys"

    Stubby's would be a good thought, But the bottle has like little dots around the bottom and the top. I really can't think of what it's called. But I believe I was told that it meant it was Poisonous or Hazardous. I'm not really sure.

    mustangtony is correct, your bottles are "no-deposit-no return" beer bottles from the mid 1960's. They originally had paper labels.
    'In Feb., 1939 the first "No Deposit, No Return, Not To Be Refilled " beer bottle is introduced by the beer industry weighing only 7 1/2 ounces compared to the 12 or 13 for the standard deposit bottle (throw-aways did not become a major beer container until the 1960's, in 1950, only 2.6 % of all packaged beer sales were in this type of container)."

    Ditto Packrat.....your bottles shown are early - mid 60s "stubby" beer bottles, Kolmen. The other two main beer bottle types are (and were) steinies and longnecks. You can check those out on Google Images. Most everything today is a longneck style, although Red Stripe and a few small breweries still use stubbies. Steinies were popular in the last mid-century and thereabouts as I recall.
