    Bottle with a note inside 5 to 6 inches deep in the ground.

    This bottle had an aluminum cap that was glued to a cork in the top. I hit the top and broke it off .Update--->
    What i thought was cork was paper that was stuffed in the end of the bottle and it looked like cork.
    Not glued like i thought.
    It looks like the paper inside the bottle was holding the cap and wasn't screwed on tight.Click image for larger version.

    The cap say's FRUIT INDUSTRIES LTD

    Federal law forbids sale or reuse of this bottle .
    The bottom has R-421 and an R in a triangle and 1-6 .

    one side has a 180 and the other side has 5 .

    The paper in the small neck is damp and past the small neck the paper is larger so the only way i can get it out is break it so i might do it if the bottle hasen't much value.

    The bottle is from after 1935, the time period where federal law prohibits....was embossed on liquor bottles.Not a lot of value thereally so I would break it to get to the paper if it were me.

    It was a map that was made during the great depression. No one trusted banks.
    Many farmers would put their savings in mason jars and bury them in the barn. Do you have the address for the barn?

    Could be this person buried his treasure as they did not trust the banks and then buries directions to the treasure in case he forgets where he buried the treasure....whew!
    Or it could be an old bar tab...lol

    Just because you can't find it, doesn't mean it's not there!
