Bottle cap reads "BROWN'S DAIRY / GRADE A RAW MILK / PLACERVILLE, CALIF."
Though it is old, it is in excellent condition as it is an unused bottle cap.
This is the earliest style/size milk bottle cap. This cap actually went into an older round milk bottle, not the newer style square milk bottle. Antique milk bottle caps are becoming quite popular to collect. The dairy caps from Montana are fairly hard to find since the state was sparsely populated in the early years.
There are not many antique items from old PLACERVILLE CALIFORNIA. Placerville is a prime old California Gold Rush town, and was originally called HANG TOWN for self explanatory reasons, and is still quite historic. Placer, as in "placer mining", is a gold mining technique, so it is a very fitting title to the town 'Placer-Ville'. How nice to be able to offer here a vintage / antique souvenir from old time Placerville, a scarce find.
