    Having trouble dating this Anchor Hocking Anchorglass base

    Yours is a screw top so it’s likely not older then the 1940’s.

    Found this extremely dark green bottle with a mineral finish today.

    This definitely won’t do that. It is an unlevel bottle though which makes me think it is some type of pontil one given the circular indentation in the heel between the base and that small circle that kicks up into the bottle.

    Found this extremely dark green bottle with a mineral finish today.

    I thought it was a pontil scar when I felt it but have never held a bottle with a sand pontil scar or viewed one in person. My fear is the bottle is an import from England would could make it not nearly as old.

    Found this extremely dark green bottle with a mineral finish today.

    Bought this from an antique store because the bottom was unusual for mineral finish bottle. I’ve only seen so many pontil bottles in person but this one has a kick up base but it’s definitely made with a mold and not a turn mold. Any guesses to the age would be appreciated.

    Kicks bottle

    That’s the base. The heel is the area above the base but not considered part of the body. https://sha.org/bottle/morphology.htm

    Most common things (other than bottles) found on digs

    Everything ashbringer said but in my area you’ll find oyster shells all of the time (Baltimore). There’s also a lot of chinaware and rusted metal fragments from who knows what that was also.

    Found this bottle yesterday and cannot find any pictures of it online…has anybody seen this before?

    I plan on “dry cleaning” it since I don’t want to accidentally get water on that label. I’ll post some pics when I get the dirt off the outside of it. There doesn’t appear to be any issues with it aside from the dirt.

    Kicks bottle

    Does the heel have any markings on it? I know for sodas on the east coast a lot of bottle makers would put the mark there (D.O. Cunningham and Bucks come to mind).

    Found digging in Baltimore with a group of guys and nobody has seen one like this. The Hochstadter Co embossed on two panels amen a partial label on the front. This company made a type of bitters that I have located online but the bottle doesn’t look like this. I’m thinking it could also be...

    Wm Wolf pontiled medicine

    I was able to locate an article on newspapers about a William Wolf who began to operate solo after his business partnership dissolved in 1850. Another article has an ad that states he can mix a type of balsam in 1859. New Berlin, PA

    Wm Wolf pontiled medicine

    I bought this today from an antique store in PA and despite my searching can’t locate much about a William wolf in that area. Any guesses as to the date or knowledge of this druggist?

    "Lion" The Great Blood Remedy and Alternative Tonic

    https://www.newspapers.com/clip/85548079/lyon-blood-purifier-co-incorporation-dat/ I found that in a newspaper. I only looked from 1899-1945 and it was the only result for “Lyon blood purifier”.
