    Just post something...

    Five days and no bottle posts? I'm gettin' the shakes here. Come on guys 'n' gals, let's see what you have out there...

    Here's one I picked up at a show last year to kick it off.

    That is a beauty sandchip. I would have grabbed it also. I haven't really dug bottles in over 45 years when I did it with an excavator. I have some really nice ones. Perhaps you have encouraged me to post them. Richard

    Beauty! That's a John Ryan I've never seen before.

    I know how you feel about checking for new posts. Sometimes I feel like there are only a dozen bottle diggers in the whole wide world. In reality, I bet most diggers are on antique-bottles.net, but, I just can't bring myself to make the transition. I've met all you people here and I'm stubborn and this is where I'm staying. I wonder how many antique-bottles.net users have even heard about this forum - we need to convert them! Haha

    Really though, I've just had some very slow digging lately, no real stories to tell. My next post will probably one of those "here's a bunch of stuff from a bunch of different sites" posts...

    Oh, if I only posted recent finds, you wouldn't hear much from me. Hard to find the time to do any looking any more. So, I'm just pulling stuff off the shelf and throwing it on and I encourage everybody to do the same. If it's a rerun, who cares? I sure don't. I'd rather do that than see no glass at all!

    sandchip, we've gotta keep the ball rolling, like you said, so here we are: lately I've been at this haaard site, a lumpy bumpy site, and I've done some metal detecting, but I also found a trash pit. There was later stuff and some older shards. Here's a beer from about 1930 with a very well-preserved foil label, and an ironstone china J&G Meakin dish from about 1890-1907. I don't know how the dish survived because almost everything was broken. That's the best I could do for now!

    I love beer and this bottle came from a high altitude mining town. I canít imagine the beer surviving the rough road on wagon to get there. A gopher had exposed another plain bottle and this was below. Colorado bottles are not to old in comparison. It is a good one for me! Click image for larger version.

    That's a beautiful bottle, and an even better story! I always thought those early Buds were really cool.

    That's got to be a rare bottle. Take good care of it.

    When you find them it adds a lot of personal value, more than the actual bottle. Thanks for the posts! It would be nice to have a collection from the old famous breweries!

    Beautiful, I love the subtle differences in the coloring of the old bottles. Please share how you set up the lighting for that picture. I can’t do mine justice.

    I may have post this one a while back. Seeing one similar in your slicksters pic caused me to post this. Probably quart size and very dark olive color.

    I don't think I've ever shown you guys this one, dug this in June 2015. Smooth base altered to a post-bottom mould. I haven't found this bottle online anywhere, only this clipping. I also dug a "Depew's Humor Ointment" from the same site, no info on that one either...
