Found this under a barn floor in early Spring. I also found some free blown gins, and many other nice bottles. I kept about ten bottles from that find. This was the gem as far as I'm concerned. Quart size in honey yellow. No damage, just some light stain. I love digging bottles.

Thanks guys. I've dug the small aqua ones before but that one was a treat.

Those saratogas are damn nice as well. I wish I saw those up here but I have to admit I've even seen a fragment yet.

Also another great bottle Rick. I remember that one.

Looks like some nice stuff has been liberated from the ground. It is easy for me to pick my best as these two are the only ones to make it home with me this year. Unfortunately I only got to dig a couple times back in March. Hope to get back in the game next year.

I can't believe it's been a full year since I actually found bottles in the soil by chance along the SF bay shoreline.
Well that is going to have to change....New Year's resolution is to GET OUT & FIND SOME PLACES TO DIG!!

Here is the Pacific Soda Works Classen & Co along with the Bay City Soda from SF from last December.

Welcome to the forum Diane, your bottle is a hurchinson soda/mineral water bottle, we call it a 'Hutch'. We don't see much Oklahoma stuff here on the forum, here is more info on hutches and the odd stopper used to seal them on Hutchbook.com, a whole site dedicated to identifying all known examples...
