Thank you all for the info. I will now put it down in writing as a circa 1960s Gentile Glass.  It is in excellent condition and that is one reason I doubted the antique Milleville title, but I like it just as much.
   Thank you once again.    Roger.

check with the people at the Museum of American Glass in West Virginia, they have a good collection of West Virginia weights and also some patrons that worked at gentile Glass. They also have many molds and items from the Degenhart Glass Museum which they acquired when it closed. www.magwv.com

I'm pretty familiar with Gentile '75 forward, and except for '76, they pretty much all the glass blower mark, and a few with the Gentile star, presumably for Star City.

In '76, I'm familiar with three special marks, all celebrating the US Bicentennial. The American Eagle (G on chest), the Liberty Bell, (again with a G in center), and the Tall Ships,(G on front sail).

I might be missing something though.

Here's a photo from a very good website showing a good number of American glass marks.

It says the Eagle was "1970's" and the Tall Ships was '77. I think that's wrong though. The Tall Ship procession was on July 4th 1976, sadly I remember it well, ships from over 30 nations took part. Perhaps it took Gentile time to create the mark, but I'd think it was only for '76.

There were several other marks as well:
1960ies and early 1970ies: different signatures inside the weight, made of coloured glass powder / frit ... I assume, many not signed.
1975: Coat of arms (with a "G" - like most of the other stamps)
1976: Liberty Bell
1977: Ship
1978: Eagle
1979: Star (supposed to be used in few 1992 weights as well)
1980: Outline of Virginia
1981-1999: Glassblower
2000: Word "Millennium"
2001-2006: Glassblower
There might be even more - these are just the ones I'm aware of.
