My dad found this milk bottles in the 70’s. Any ideas on the age or any other info.

The bottle has raised glass writing on it. My dad used to bottle hunt along time ago and he showed me this bottle but he never has found any information on it. I tried to get him to take good clear pictures or as clear as he could so sorry if the pictures aren’t that clear. He would be happy to get any information on it. Thanks for looking.

Usually the bottom of a milk bottle will have 2 digits emboss on it.. for example a 44 would be 1944... the style of that one would appear to be from the 1930s or 40s.. some were marked with BB48. stamped on the edge very close to the bottom..that markingwould mean= bottled before 1948... as far as the dairy you might be able to google it...

It may have been a public dairy, instead of a privately owned dairy farm. I have found some bottles here in MA. Embossed would read, "A bottle of milk is a bottle of health" Bootyhoundpa is right on as far as dating the bottle. I still enjoy digging for old bottles , the old dumps are getting harder to find.
