I bet you thought you just got lucky.[:)]

Here is the Dr Townsend I won in the AB&GC 2012 writing contest. I have never dug a "whole" one of these baby's but I was lucky enough to dig some cool colored pieces over the years.

Thank's to John Pastor for this beautiful first place prize. Now I have a whole one! [:D]

Beautiful bottle I found one in a house about ten years ago but it had the weak embossing. I ended up selling it that is one heck of a prize to win congrats!

Congrats, Townsend's are great bottles. I hear a New England guy is trying to catalog all the different molds.

Hey Rick I am Travis the Townsends was pontiled. It had a sand chip pontil, it also had a weird mold mark on one corner. I really do not know how to explain it. The guy who bought it new exactly what mold it was. Townsends and Wisharts are really cool bottles you could build a killer collection off either one of those. By the way I really like the purple flask you dug, will you be at Baltimore?

Well atticfinds; I am always looking for weird mold marks - I consider them bottlemysteries until we understand what caused them. So can it be pictured? RED Matthews

Thanks Paul

I am waiting for the March & April issue of "Bottles & Extra" to come. I wrote a story last year called "The privy digathon" It was when we dug all those blighted houses in town. there wasn't a whole lot found but we did get a few good things plus some good metal detecting finds in the yards. I'll post it up when I scan it.The pic on the front cover is mine,"Kids looking down the privy" [:D] Rick

This is a Dr T that was found in OH. I have been looking through the site and enjoying all the information on all the awesome bottles as I am in envy..But this one does have me quite confused. The bottom is not marked, so I am taking it that you go by how wide the actual pontil is? And of course the markings embossed on the bottle. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
