Small 1700 Onion Bottle & others
During the last couple days extra low tides
I've been out hunting an area that my friend theorizes a 17th C wreck took place.
The wreck was recorded, but exact location is not known
Several items found in the vicinity date to the era.
He had previously found a large Onion bottle, This one is small, a little over 5" high,
black glass with orange staining, dates around 1700.
Also a DR. / KILMER?S / SWAMP / ROOT / KIDNEY / LIVER & . BLADDER / REMEDY // DR. KILMER & CO. // BINGHAMTON, N.Y, Note Kidney embossed around text...
Small Disinfectant Bottle,
And a Deep Punt Green Wine Bottle.
These are my glass finds, I'll post my metal finds soon....( some good ones! )
Thanks for looking& HH Everyone!!
Don't know why my pix aren't in the order I attached them

Always wanted to find an onion bottle while digging dumps and the such, pretty sweet bottle!

Holy smokes Herbie, I gotta vote banner on that onion bottle - it's bringing tears to my eyes!

Awesome pancake onion Herbie! I've been digging at an early trash pit for years with hundreds of parts from those type bottles, but never dug a whole one. Did I say that bottle was awesome
By the way, I've recently had the same problem with the order of my pics being shuffled around too. Even when I tried uploading them one at a time I couldn't get it to work right. Someone needs to fix this.
PS - you definitely got my banner vote on this one!!

I'm passionate about hunting relic sites . . . as I feel the imprint of past lives often lingers there!
Metal Detectorists finds . . . are the background noise of antiquity!
Don't question it . . . just dig it!
