    One NOS bail out bottle would be a killer find...…..Two would be an amazing stroke of good fortune......….but the man has the original box that came with it!!
    He's a time traveler and nobody's going to convince me differently!;)

    The last time that we saw these 2 bottles, only 1 of them had the original box to go with it...…..
    What did you do Carl?...…..crank up the time machine and go back and get the other original box? :)

    here is mine. sadly its missing the valve turn knob and the hose is petrified. otherwise the bottle is in good shape as is the carrying canvas.
    hopefully I can find another bottle with the valve knob.

    stamped on it is The Ohio Chem & MFG Co
    Cleveland
    and the regulator dial has the Ohio Chemical logo and also says: Clapp Instrument companyWebster Mass. No 25-B
