    Is this a normal 1943 Coca Cola bottle color? Or repro?

    Robby if it wasn't for people "littering" years ago, us bottle collectors would all be out of business now , lol. I love finding old Cokes laying in the woods and on roadsides. They are starting to be found less anymore.

    Identify pepsi bottle.

    Looks like it says 16A55 so 1955. Most of these Pepsi's are similarly dated.

    Hire's ACL.

    It doesn't *always* work, but does increase the chances it will many times. I dug a rare local milk with a WW2 back, but even after 30 days it still destructed. I think the minerals in the dirt it's found in has a lot to do with it.

    TB and silverware you find in dumps

    In those days coins were silver too (and kinda "ho-hum") so it wasn't the big deal it is now.

    antique warner's safe kidney & liver cure bottle that needs value

    Interesting variation as it says London GB and USA on it because it's for export (Canada here). Mine just says Rochester, N.Y.

    In The Dump

    Repaired shoulder or replaced knee sure ain't stopping you from getting out there and digging some cool stuff! Love reading your posts. GLASSHOPPER

    Christmas Eve Hutch Find.

    Wow that's quite a bunch of sodas and cones to boot! I kinda think soda cones are harder to find than beer conetops.

    what is it?

    RobbyBobby, I posted your pic of that item on my metal detecting forum and after 123 looks nobody has identified it either, except the single response said maybe part of a trap. I'll chime in if someone ID's it.

    Coal region blob top - F. Krapp

    VERY nice! Some name though. I can hear someone asking "Ya still drinkin' that Krapp?" lol.

    Identify pepsi bottle.

    I've been doing this bottle thing since like 1968 and I've never ever seen one like that either. I'm guessing some kind of prototype. Especially with no markings on the base at all.

    Rare Vancouver BC Pepsi

    GREAT post! Thanks for all that work. Very interesting!

    Is this some kind of canning jar?

    It's an "Invisible" jar, lol. Not seeing any pic.

    Is this bottle valuable?

    Not too old with those bottom stipples. That W in a circle reminded me of the old Westinghouse logo (I collect old radios), lol.

    My Collection Photographed Individually

    10-4 agree. Though one of the first bottles I ever dug in '69 I never saw a label before.
