This group of skinny and fat concave skirted BFNY's exhibit the darker Old Bridge colors, suggesting the "NEW YORK" embossing was not "dropped" after the 1908 move to Old Bridge. Rather, the molds were just used until worn out and the entire mold replaced. The unit on the far left is questionable, but looks like some OB glass. The rest are those classic dark OB colors. Of note, I do not have a single example of the fat style (3 on right) in a light aqua type Bushwick color. This mold always exhibits a "1" shop number on the examples I have.
