|This type of bottle has several known examples, with lots of variety in the ships and what hangs from the stoppers. The ship is a rigged three-masted ship without a keel. An American flag waves from the back, and a long paper banner has become detached from the middle mast. From the stopper hangs a black and yellow barrel with "O A xx" on one side and paper cutouts saying "Soldier's Home" on the other.
