Did I choose a lucky day to go! They had a large display of finds that the Odyessey has brought up from shipwrecks. Among the many rare items that were brought up, they had a display of their best bottle finds. Here's a few pics:

A couple of master inks. The one on the right had damage, unfortunately.

Here's a "Persian Saddle Flask" for yah. I guess we can now officially say they are reproductions.

Mike, I haven't been there in 40 years but I love the display! Thanks for sharing. How long is it running?
I hope the controversial "deck sweeper" goes unnoticed.[:D][:D][:D]

Hey Mike,

Thanks for the field trip to the museum. I think that's Matt's old deck sweeper.[8D]

Fantastic display. Were the bottles from a specific site or recovered in general. Good pictures through the glass. Thanks for taking the pictures and posting them.

great display, I love the odyessey finds... There are some great videos on line too. God imagine finding all these bottles in one place!

Now about the deck sweeper, I wish they would cut the crap with that stuff! If anything they used bottles they had on hand, just regular old bottles...

By far my favorite picture! Imagine if you came across this while diving?

Shows you shouldnt always believe everything you see even if its in a museum.
Leave the glass to the experts[:D]

Some nice pics in this posts. Usually the bottles I have seen in museums are a little cleaner, maybe tumbled. I don't recall seeing any that weren't clean/mint at the Corning museum either.

Does that "Deck Sweeper" have an aqua neck and lip or is that an effect from the photo?

The sneakers are a little beat up, actually :)

The "Deck Sweeper" Does not have an aqua neck. It's tough to take photos from behind glass, even with a $600 camera and a few years of experience.
