    one more thing I found. The GR is Georgius Rex. King George. Not sure if it's a KG I, II, or III !!! I recently read that KG I was from Germany. Fascinating stuff. I still can't get over that find!

    Interesting fact King George II was the last British Monarch born outside of Great Britain. (They were from Hanover)

    I'm not sure on the US market, but I would guess that Mug would make around $1000 or more!
    Plus no mention of the 18th C Scottish looking Quaich or bowl, it would be nice to see a better picture of that!

    I can't begin to describe how cool it is to see items like the mug and the bottles in one piece! That large ax with the handle preserved is amazing too. What is the dish looking thing with the extension that looks like a crown?

    I'm mesmerized by that blanket photo of your finds. While the mug and bottles have been recognized by many others for their obvious merit, I'd also like to point out that the ax (with its original handle) is beyond amazing, and its easy for one to envision it being swung on its very last use. Banner day without a doubt.

    We need a better picture of that potential ceremonial type drinking bowl!

    Insane! Congratulations! Finding an intact onion bottle is almost unheard of, but to find two is crazy! I'm totally speechless when it comes to the mug. That is a clear banner find in itself, and super rare!
