Found this Bottle In the basement of an old Pharmacy, I myself dont remember it ever being there, and im 26, my dad is 56 and he dosent remember it either so it has not been n operation for a long time, I found about 10 broken ones like it and 1 other the same, it has markings "CC" Cubic Centimeters and some other measurement on the other side, and some weird 3i symbol in the center on the back but it is not a 3 but some other symbol im thinking Latin, and on the bottom it says "Sanitary".

P.S. I would like to know if the value "if any" sure its not much but their could be 100 of them down there, and what would be kept in here..? Thanks for the help... Curt

Mystery Solved

    Hi Curt,

    I believe that these bottles date from the 1930s or 40s. They held medicines and were perhaps graduated by dosage. I do know that the 3i corresponds with the size of the bottle, i have found some as large as 3vii.

    Dollar value is negligible, coolness factor is much higher. Have fun sorting through them!

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks it helped alot, and im thinking your year is right on because i found a carbonator down there and the owners manual marked "Installed 1943" so thats when this building was a "Drug Store". Thanks for your time...
