    I've had a time getting it right myself, and this was the first time I had tried this set up. I took the old ironing board that belonged to my granny, the kind you lay across two chairbacks, and put it on my work bench. It's just a rough sawn 1 x 12. As a side note, the taper on the end was done with a hatchet. Anyway, I took a large piece of white poster board that some hood stripes came in that I had to install for a customer (I don't throw away much), and caught one edge under the back edge of the board and curved it up against my shop window. It was getting late in the day, so I also aimed an old desk lamp from the right for a little extra light. After taking the picture, I cropped it to take out all the crap, bringing the bottom up just to include the edge of the board. Never have been a fan of pictures of otherwise great artifacts with grungy feet or dirty dishes in the background, but that's just me. With today's technology right at our fingertips, it's not like you need a photography studio. Sorry for digressing, but thanks for the kind words. It'll be interesting to see how well embossing shows up with this set-up.

    Only been collecting 45 years and never heard of that one. What a cool name. Amazing what's out there yet to be discovered.

    Do you think Depew would be a local company and the bottles didn't get around?

    I found a Hoster's beer bottle from Columbus today on the Ohio river. 1920's probably. The bottom is broke, but I found the base piece, and it fits perfectly. Now I need super glue.

    Next I went to an antique store and bought a Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and a Wagners and Sons Brewing Company beer bottle. The Wagners bottle is especially cool, because they were in business from 1933-1937.

    Old find, recent find, bought yesterday or years ago, open pontil or crown top? Bring it. Posted it before? Doesn't matter. Not yours, but one you would love to have? Let's see it. If you like it, we want to see it.

    Here's one that was found years ago, not 30 miles from me. It had kicked around the house for years, used by a family to prop a window open. Once the bottle community found out about it, Bob Mebane of Texas traveled to Georgia just to buy that bottle. Upon the passing of Mr. Mebane, it went to the Warren Lane collection, and now I believe it resides in the Mark Vuono collection. Only three examples of this mold exist to my knowledge, the other two in light amethystine and colorless. One of those that I would love to have, but when your pockets only go to the first knuckle, well...

    Now, back to planet Reality with this little drug store that I found a couple of years back. Pretty sure it was the kinfolk of one of my teachers in school. She looked about 80 years old back then, and you know, it's just "Yes, ma'am, no ma'am" and try to stay quiet and outta trouble. She's long gone now with no family that I know of, and instead of being a little scatbag, now I wish I had spent more time talking with her. No telling what she could've told me that would really matter now that I've grown older.

    Here's this other thing, and I found one of these at this site before, metal detecting the first time though. This was in that same trash pit as the Meakin bowl. It's like a stamp, I'm not sure. This one has a man and woman watching birds or something...

    Sadly I haven't had much luck looking for bottles in Wyoming, as the 40 acre old city dump/landfill (~1872-1920 or so) is now built over with homes and businesses and a park covers the rest. I was detecting a curb strip in the area and not 6 inches down was the dump layer with late 1910s stuff everywhere, and while I would if I could, alas even here sinking trenches and digging bottles in curb strips would be frowned upon .

    I did manage to dig up on eBay this very rare 1870s applied-lip Patent Medicine from a sleepy farming town a bit west of Peoria, population around 2,400 now and 1,100 in 1880. It's the only patent med known from there and the only example I had ever seen come up for sale since I learned of the existence of the bottle in the '90s. I've spent a lot of time in and near that town, even found their dump, and one of these bottles was at the tippy-top of my list for the collection.

    That's a great looking bottle, Plums. Sure sounds like a rare bird. Nothing like finally scoring one that you've been after for years. This hobby requires a lot of patience sometimes.

    Do you still have that green, pontiled pickle you dug out of that later dump? I wouldn't mind seeing that one again.

    I am actually going to sell most of these on ebay, along with a bunch of meds, good soda's and maybe a beer bottle or two. I need some extra money for better bottles!

    I have that 7up. Wish I had that TruAde. It was my favorite soda back in '55.
