I recently dug up my back yard and exposed two brown screw top bottles with Javex written around the top and on the bottom. On the very bottom is written "JAVEX with a 2 below. I was just curious as to what era this would be from.
Thank you, Justin

The picture below is not your bottle but a gallon sized Javex jug. According to the Trademark Office:

JAVEX Goods and Services (EXPIRED) LIQUID PREPARATION FOR BLEACHING, CLEANING, REMOVING STAINS, DISINFECTING, AND DEODORIZING. FIRST USE: 1919. FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 1919

Most bleach bottles have a very limited value.  You can find Javex bottles at flea markets and in antique malls for under $20.
