    What's your 'holy grail' ?

    Ok, wow! Thanks for the correction sandchip. I knew the western bitters was fetching a premium price but itís nothing like this flask

    Okay now that I have come back to earth and settled down to maybe a little normal thinking on a Holy Grail. This one is within reach for us. Rare to say the least but what the heck itís just a hutch right? Iíve only have bits and pieces of one after hundreds and hundreds of pits. Fingers crossed this one might be in the spring pit of destiny!!!Click image for larger version.

    Shore up those walls and go deep, there's one at the bottom! I have a feeling the deeper pits would contain more artifacts, because people are strange and get more satisfaction out of the long drop. Whether it's a turd or a C.W. Arnold hutch, they listen for the splash. If they stopped to use a shallow privy, but knew there was a nice deep one just up the street, they'd hold it in a little longer, haha. "But I want to throw my C.W. Arnold hutch down that hole, the deep one with the long drop and loud splash, the one that jgas is going to dig 130 years from now!" We tend to think that people were more decent than that back then, but, those kinds of quirks were all undoubtedly there.

    I agree with Plug, but you never know. It would be worth revisiting them for a few pictures for us to review. The gable-end Tippecanoe cabin is extremely rare with only two known examples. A mint example in amber of all things would probably command a quarter of a million. Even an original EG Booz brings around 3K nowadays. And Lairmo, I'm not trying to be a smart aleck here, but I wish had a dollar for every time folks have told me, "I've got a bottle like that!" But with that said, check them out. It would thrill me for you to post a piece that would turn the bottle world on its head!

    Jgas, you are so right. They don't have to be 5 and 6 figure bottles to be a Holy Grail, at least to me. I remember seeing one of these for the first time and how stricken I was with its crudity and character, such that I went home as a kid and drew a picture of it (had no camera, and there was no such thing as a cell phone). I never thought that I would have an opportunity to actually acquire one, but many years later, I did and it is one of my favorite bottles to this day.

    I agree. I've found bottles that wouldn't sell for 10 bucks, but I wouldn't take a million for them. The bottle and memories of finding it are worth much more to me. What kills me is that some diggers that find the best stuff, don't give a damn about the bottles and turn right around and sell 'em like they're nothing. Life ain't fair!
