This beer bottle was recovered from the Fort Scott National Historic Site during excavations conducted there between 1968 through 1972 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. When Fort Scott was built it was on the western military frontier, but is now located within the city limits of Fort Scott. The aqua bottle has an applied crown neck finish and was made on a two-piece mold. The letters "AB" appear on the base in addition to the mold number. This indicates the bottle was manufactured by Adolphus Busch, who founded two glass companies, the Adolphus Busch Glass Company at St. Louis, Missouri, and the American Glass Company at Streator, Illinois.

Date: 1880-1910
