Dug these over past few years here in Michigan. Are any of these tough or are they all common? Cottage Grove, 106 Beals Ave. I think this is Detroit? LEON.

Wow, I love when people post milks! They are my favorite type of bottle!

1: Cottage Grove: Definitely a tough 1 can't find much info.

2: Dairy Container half pint: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-DETROIT-DAIRY-CONTAINER-CORP-3-CENT-MILK-CREAMER-GLASS-BOTTLE-ROUND-/261099663360?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccac0b000&nma=true&si=o9YLzqpCTx8FdeOnTV7WEj9zex0%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

3: Hickory Ridge 1/2 gallon version, definitely a tough 1, rare doesn't always mean value though: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HICKORY-RIDGE-FARM-DAIRY-STOCKBRIDGE-MICH-1-2-GALLON-MILK-BOTTLE-/140825480006?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20c9da4b46&nma=true&si=o9YLzqpCTx8FdeOnTV7WEj9zex0%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

4: Lone Birch, another tough one, can't find info.

5: Nott's, probably one of the rarest in the group, not sure of value.

6: John Schlaff had a dairy in Detroit, Michigan wonder if there is any relation.

7: Soo Creamery http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Soo-Creamery-Bottle-Sault-Ste-Marie-/350568307450?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item519f7fdafa

8: Sunnyside dairy, another tough 1, most milks from Michigan can be tough 2 find.

9: Wurster: Nice 1, here's 1 in paint: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wurster-Dairy-Co-pyro-quart-milk-bottle-Ann-Arbor-Michigan-Washtenaw-County-/130758781933?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e71d4abed&nma=true&si=o9YLzqpCTx8FdeOnTV7WEj9zex0%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Post any other milks, I will be glad 2 help, milks from Penn. especially! Most are worth at least $10.

I like Mich milks too...I'd never really ran into many until I started digging at the wife's family farm....aka..our farmhouse hunting camp...tons of dumps there...there are the apparent ones that are 30-40yds long full of stuff and the ravine style ones (one is 200-300yds long and 15yds-ish wide)..then the kind you stumble upon while metal detecting......i'd mostly found ACLs and misc cans and toys etc.... Came into these milks and a bunch more (mostly the same ones over and over except a copper country dairy that was an ACL..was broken though)...weird thing is, the Joppe's is from my hometown of Grand Rapids...crazy to find it in Houghton in a dump..

First one, the Joppes..

Nice bottles Leon. Most of mine are locals. Genessee, Creamline, McDonalds, Traphagen, Freemans, Boyds, Herrimans, Sprague, and some others. Most antiques dealers love these things.
