This nearly complete bottle was found in 1966 at historic Fort Hays in Ellis County. The bottle probably post dates the occupation at the fort, but is still an interesting addition to the Kansas Historical Society's archeological collection. The bottle's bottom side announces it was "Registered Trade-Marked" and "Made in Austria." It was made for the Colby Bottling Works of Colby, Kansas. What could it have held?
