    "don't don't" - so you do! I see what you did there. I remember starting out and finding my first animal bones and being convinced for a brief moment that they were human, quite the rush, haha

    Guys, I was hoping for some more, like, realistic holy grails too, but...

    Haha! No, this will do just fine. I thought I saw one of these on eBay not too long ago? I think they were asking for 12k or something like that. But you'll get one, jgas, right at the bottom of that deep and dangerous privy you're gonna finish for us this spring!

    Another great bottle! And I'd be compelled to say all the same things that I did about the first bottle you posted - a beautiful picture bottle with classic embossing, and amber again, too! Is that just a coincidence, or are we starting to understand what kind of bottles you like?

    If he does, tell your Dad that I said hi and that I love him, and miss him very much.

    Even though it lacks the "W.R. Strong", that sapphire blue example in the first picture is yuuummy. Good job on the article, by the way!

    Great bottle and it went for a heap, but I believe this one brought the highest price for an antique bottle, sold publicly at roughly $176K. I've heard of others selling privately for more.

    awesome thread. My holy Grail would be this Coventry CT Lafayette corregated flask. It would be amazing to dig one but that's never going to happen lol. I would even be happy to find the shards.

    Forgive me if Iím wrong but I believe the bottle your father probably has two of are E.G. Booz as this tippecanoe flask are quite rare. They are similar in shape and a nice bottle and they came in several colors.Click image for larger version.

    I reaaally like the colour on this flask. And you never know, you already got the cornucopia flask, so you're on the right track! Just keep digging - it's only a matter of time...

    A silver cup from the ancient Roman days engraved "JESVS CHRISTVS". I probably won't find it here in Colorado.
