What a question! I don't bother to bring them home.
I have been keeping some of the new bottles, just for the amazing quality I am seeing in their quality of distribution and thin weight factor control. The whole science of parison design, that has been computerized to create glass quality that is mind blowing. RED Matthews

I didn't know there was a torpedo from Paterson! I'll keep my eye out for it. I have a lot of "junk" bottles from my younger digging days. I'm working on tossing them, making a new dump, or giving them away.

Here's a real beauty that I think I finally tossed

What is your worst bottle I never knew there was such a thing until I started getting rid of everything. The worst ones are already in the bin, now it's just the stuff to donate somewhere and a few I'll keep for sentimental reasons.

wow, those bottles suck [:D]
At the TOC dump i dig sometimes, i find all kinds of awful bottles. They suck, and they make me sad. SO, what i do with them, i act like they're artillery and i'm shooting them across the river at a bike path. They never make it to the path, because the goal is to lob them as high in the air as possible and not so much take out bikers with pond's cold creams, but they usually make a big splash in the river and joggers slow down to see what's up... that's when the pond's cold creams come flyin'.
Sometimes i also dig up pieces of, or a descent complete section of some sort of ceramic pipe. I affix the pipe to a dead tree stump that it will fit over, and my goal becomes trying to see if i can launch the bottles at the pipe and see them explode. Me and my dad did that until glass shot back at us, IT WAS AWESOME YO.
One more thing.......... there's a mysterious tree with a big old hollow stump, and i once chucked some awful broken bottle in it, and it responded with a splash. Turns out, it was full of water, but i determined immediately it was actually "primordial ooze", and that if i threw enough bottles into it one day bottle life would crawl out.
I hope someone finds my dig site (other than the previous diggers... who may or may not have returned by now) and just asks themselves, "Why.........."
thanks for the laugh, worst bottles are fun.

in the garage i would have a few that would qualify , sometimes i save examples of unusual broken or damaged bottles i find . there is a box in the garage that contains a few of them , don't have pictures of them but i'm sure everybody finds one now and then they just can't throw away even though its damaged

I saved a lot of slicks when I first started digging. I remember I must have a sack full of slicks from my first dig at the TOC dump. My worst bottle would have to be a Curtice brothers preservers ketchup bottle, I hate digging those.

This bottle is actually in my collection. I got it, along with 93 others, in a trade with Jay / ConchTimes in Key West. I coveted a bunch of "Littles" he had and I sent him about 1/2 dozen of my bottles. This was one of the bunch.

Obviously it has experienced some time in the fires of HELL but it apparently repented and was saved. In the bunch, I got a number of different similarly shaped perfumes but not one with this embossing so I'm keeping it. I really don't know what all it reads as I can't make it out.

Thanks again for the trade Jay. Jim
