Unembossed "Squares" from the Old West

I've been able to assemble the whole color run of these colored squares for less than a day's wages. Not too bad for some great colors with applied tops and great overall crudeness to boot. Chances are that they were all western blown or at the very least, blown for distribution in the Old West. I've been told by an avid western glass collector that the amber example and the yellow example are the Collins Valley Bitters from Red Bluff, CA. The lighter grass-green (far right) was reportedly dug in Wyoming.
