    I know a lot of you guys like to watch the NuggetNoggin metal detecting Youtube videos, but this guy from North Carolina has some really good bottle hunting videos.

    I'm not really into bottle hunting, but I can respect the interest in historical and antique bottles and glass. With that said, Nugget has also been showing videos lately related to bottle hunting. I had a blast too, but I think I was awful close to heat exhaustion around noon. James hooked me up with a powerade from the vending machine whew! Will post my finds in a few...
    Stop talking about it; get out there and do it! There's history to be saved!

    From now on, I'm taking an ice chest of bottled waters! I've been going out with little or no water/drinks.

    My finds, $1.07 in clad and a cheap piece of costume jewelry. Actually, I think it came off a perfume bottle or a purse...decorative item. Most coins I've found in a day yet!

    Interesting bottle digging videos muerte. Ive always liked old bottles. Ive never been much of a privy digger, but I have come across some nice ones exploring some areas and doing construction work over the years. It kind of looks like fun and something I could get into and enjoy, and they make nice displays.
    I ran across a bottle digger once while detecting, and it sure looked like hard work driving that probe into the ground looking for privys.
    I thought id share a few photos of some of my nicer bottles.
    The Biloxi Artesian Barqs Rootbeer Hutchinson and the Torpedo bottle are my 2 favorites.
    Looks like yall had a nice hunt today.
    Was hotter than $#%@ today, stay hydrated.

    That Hutchinson Barqs is COOL!
    I have several old Barqs bottles (even a green one).
    I have several non-ACL styles, RED ACL, and plenty of the BLUE ACL ones, but did not know there were Hutch style ones.
    I grew up in Bay St. Louis, so Barqs bottles are kind of in my blood.
    Cool torpedo bottle too.
    I may have to take a pic of what I have and post it.

    Good idea Steve about the ice chest.
    I carry a small ice chest whenever I go out.
    I pack a couple of waters, maybe a powerade, tea, and a power bar.
    I take a potassium pill before I go out and one when I get back during the summer months (if not, I will get muscle cramps).

    I like that Half Cent you found by the way!

    Lol, thanks. Yeah, I found the "half cent" lying on the ground, near the bleachers. Also found the nickle and the little charm on the ground. Too bad I can't tell what year the "half cent" is, lol.

    Man, that is a nice Barq's bottle...seeing some crazy prices for them online...wow, had no idea!

    Thanks guys. I used to have the really rare and hi-dollar barqs bottle that looked like a coke bottle, but said barqs on it.
    Cant remember the exact story, but there were not many made, and then barqs was going to get sued for copyright infringement, so they had to destroy the bottles, and only a handful ever survived.
    My grand-father found it in his backyard while digging a garden when I was young.
    Someone told me this bottle was worth $1000 or more.
    Unfortunately I lost it when I lost my home and everything else that was inside of it when Hurricane Katrina hit us.

    That Hutchinson Barqs you have is worth over $150!
    https://www.facebook.com/barqscollectors?ref=nf
    There are bottle polishing guys out on the internet that would charge about $30 to get it polished up like the one on that site (about 3/4 way down).
    I would leave it as is though, that adds to the character!

    Thanks for the info, and that is a cool barqs link.
    My dad actually found that bottle and gave it to me. He had 3 of them at one time.
    He had some financial problems several years back, and sold the other 2 to a local collector for $100 each, so I figured it was worth a hundred or better.
    I know a guy that has one and got it polished, and it looks really sharp cleaned.
    I will probably just keep mine the way it is and hang onto it. Hopefully the value will only increase.
    Thanks

    After cleaning up that old corroded bent wheat penny I found at Kamper park, it turns out it was from 1929.
    I know James found an old merc on the other side of the creek, so it looks like there are some oldies there!
    We may need to revisit the other side up to the road where the old Alligator pit was.
    The formal opening of Kamper park was 9/1/1913

    I actually dug a straight sided coca cola bottle... Script writing. Some interesting history behind those and I will dig it out of storage and take some pictures one day. I have several good bottles I have dug over the years!
