    Wow, if you can find a picture of the colourless one I'd love to see it, I love colourless historical flasks. I just did some searching around now and saw the price this one sold for - might as well not have any pockets at all! If I'm not mistaken, these never have the branches around the bust of Lafayette, right? Anyway, it's a searing beauty!

    Here you go, brother. I think you're right about the branches and as far as I know, the GI-89a is the only flask period, with herringbone ribbing on the sides. Hell of a piece of early American history. The colorless example was found just a couple or so years ago, so it's great to know that good stuff can still turn up.

    Gobsmacking! I have to say, I like that one a lot more than the aqua one. There's something so beautiful about a colourless historical flask, it's almost otherworldly. You always just expect the aqua...

    Hey thanks man I appreciate that. I know itís been a while, and itís not for lack of trying. Most times the situation hasnít been right and I didnít get good/enough footage. And yeah the weather has been a factor. Hopefully this spring itíll be back to the old ways. I did find some decent stuff this fall, maybe Iíll get around to making a post here.

    Yeah man, maybe it's just that you're the quality-over-quantity sort, and that's totally understandable. Watching an hour-long video where someone finds only a single Baker's extract is never that fun, haha, but at the same time, the landscapes you moved around in were so different, so it was always interesting.

    Iíd like to think of myself as the quality over quantity type but other people would probably contend otherwise. Anyways I appreciate the support. I found a bunch of cool stuff in a river outside Boston this fall but I didnt get any good footage really so I never made a video. It was fun picking tho. I like going places most people wouldnít want to search because it feels more original, like Iím blazing my own trail. At least I can imagine and dream...

    Well it'd be nice to see some pics of what you found around Boston, anyway! And I get what you mean about searching in the weird places. Excepting one privy (that darn 10-footer, valuable lesson learned), I have yet to dig a place that was dug before me, all of my spots are virgin sites. To discover the place yourself, and then discover what secrets it holds, is where it's at.
