Hi everyone, I just moved back to east coast and went hiking down at the potomac river in a spot in which I've had good luck eyeballing random stuff in past and came up with a cool 1920s beer bottle, a broken arrowhead, a lockslide, and a sinker made out of civil war bullets...something I have seen many youtubers find but never found one myself. Just was supposed to be a hike but Ya'll know how it is...lol. Hard to tell due to overcast afternoon but the bottle has a cool olive-green patina like a wine bottle. Thank you for peeking and Happy searching!

Wonderful pictures. I love this time of year with the cooler temps & the beautiful colors on the trees. Lots of history on that river. That bottle is awesome.

Why thank you right kindly! I definitely feel a sort of reverence for the Potomac, she gives up her secrets when she's willin'.
