"RESL"? on a glass bottle?

~ sea glass identification question submitted by Kim, Western Massachusetts

My piece of sea glass was found on the shores of North Carolina.

It measures 1.75 inches x 1.5 inches and is 1/4 inch thick!

The blue label on it does not seem to be a paper label, but does seem to be raised slightly. 

I don't know if you can pull it off or not (I don't want to try!) and has the letters "RESL" in white although the last letter could be something else (T? I?), but this is the END of the word. 

I'd love to know what the fragment came from!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Sun Crest Old Bottle Id

Hi Kim,

Nice find!!! We've pretty much identified where your glass fragment came from - an old Sun Crest bottle.

We looked at the word and guessed that the less letter must be a T... then the rest wasn't too hard, searching on Google.

We found this image:

Sun Crest sea glass shard or fragment ID

This bottle is (at least was) for sale on Etsy for $6.99 and we would recommend buying it to display along with your shard :) Here's the Etsy site:
