In his book Guest lists both variations of the bottle seen below.

This is 1 of 2 variations I am aware of, this aqua colored bottle w/ slug plate has a “Property of Fort Hamilton Brewing Co” embossing
This is the second variation, a very light aqua (light green?) color also containing the embossment “Property of Fort Hamilton Brewing Co”
