I have an (I think) old Beer bottle from a small town in

Customer Question

I have an (I think) old Beer bottle from a small town in Northern California called McCloud. The bottle was under an old Gold mining shack that had collapsed many years earlier and had become covered with pine straw, and branches. We were looking for cattle when I found the shack. Decided to check it out, and found this old bottle under the mess. I'm color blind, but it's a real dark color, and says M. Leonardini arching across the top, and Mc Cloud, Cal below. Inside the circle is an ML crossed over each other. This is all embossed into the bottle. Throughout the bottle there are blemishes, and bubbles, but besides that the bottle is sound, no cracks or chips. Oh, and there is a 276H on the bottom. regards
