    Here is a Civil War U.S.A Hosp. Dept. bottle I bought a while ago. It has a flat base, and was most likely made in Baltimore.

    Your USA Hospital bottle is a great example of how sometimes, staining actually adds to the character and desirability of a bottle. Thanks for sharing. Good picture, too!

    Let's hear it for the straight sides! My favorite of all the bottles! Mostly.

    The BIM fancy-script private mold cokes from Peoria (Chicago and Mt Carmel IL also had ones of the same style) are probably one of my favorite types of bottle to dig. I sure wouldn't mind finding one of those southeastern BIM 1915 hobbleskirts though

    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.

    Dont use superglue as it will turn yellow and weaken over time. Locktite 349 is a uv cure glue that works great, and is used in museums along side hextall. Hextall can also be used to tint and cast missing pieces as well

    Thanks! I still haven't done anything yet. I'll have to find that stuff.

    Those are some great diggin' pics, Plums.

    I guess this is what you're talking about? I picked this one up at the Rome, Ga. show many years ago and it's still one of my favorites. It looks like it was emptied once and laid to rest in a bed o'velvet. Not a hint of wear to be found. Columbia, SC on the bottom. These were blown at the Laurens, SC glassworks, known for the nice blue aqua glass. I found a nice blue aqua, ABM Macon, Ga. 1915 last summer that is mint except for faint milkiness inside. The neat thing about it is that it was blown in a mold used in hand-blowing that had been adapted for machine blowing as evidenced by the prominent mold lines resulting from the gap between mold halves that aided in venting, leading me to believe this one was also blown at Laurens, supposedly the only plant to hand blow the 1915s.

    That reminds me. Back in the 80s, I knew a guy that had a tooled top Macon 1923 in mint condition. He and his gal lived a wild life, he's been dead and gone for years now, and I have no idea what might've become of that bottle. Never heard of another one.

    Yeah, the Laurens Glassworks hobbleskirts, thanks for posting yours! The odd outlier blown bottles are extra interesting to me. It sounds as though that couple with the blown 1923 had more of a preference for the Coca versus the Cola! Did you manage to inspect it personally? The only thing I can think of would be preliminary test-bottles (like coin test strikes) hand-blown in the mold to make sure it was ready to be installed in the machine. Maybe that was easier than running the machine and then seeing that something was wrong and having to disassemble and retool?
