nice old mineral water bottle with what appears to be an
unusual mould repair on the back.

thought Red would like to take a gander at this one.

it's in the third photo.

Thanks Jim, You are right about that mark. It is different and that always becomes more interesting. I will watch it and see if I can swing it. I am not sure of how they got the square form, but they had to square the corners the same as the would on the bottom of a tomstone slug plate. The half leaf would match a milling machine cutter and be easier. This method would take some slow riffling to take a rectangular sharp cornered hole for an iron insert, but that looks like what they did. There have been some others that were narrower and longer. Thanks for thinking about me. RED Matthews
