    Yeah, it's not horribly scratched up. There is nothing to indicate it was ever in the ground.

    Any info on this?

    This is the first bottle I've bought in a very long time. It was only a couple bucks in a thrift store. It has no seams. Was this a liquor bottle? Any ideas on age? It's got a few seed bubbles and is...

    RE: SNAP CRACKLE AND POP

    I wonder if the fact that glass is actually a liquid has anything to do with it? I might actually weep like a little girl if I worked all day to dig them out and they cracked in the sun!

    RE: Need info please

    Also, this farmer may have had a crop duster at some point. It's a flightline fire extinguisher. Maybe it was in case of him dusting his plane instead of the crops.

    My first bottle dig!!!

    Hey Gang,

    I have some friends who have a house on the coast of Washington State. It sounds like a great dig spot. Built in 1885, it had the bathroom added later. They are totally cool with...

    RE: REAL or FAKE? opinions welcome!

    Drugstores and Apothecaries back then were, believe it or not, pretty scientific places. They had scales sensetive enough to measure grains, minims (1/480th of a fl.oz) and drams. All of the...

    This one is similar. I was told that the cap kept the stopper in place so that the country doctor wouldn't spill the contents when he rode a horse to see patients. I was also told the metal cap was...

    RE: Cute One

    Hey Everyone,

    Personally, I remember "Dippity Doo" as being like a bubbly blue goo. I never used it but my neighbor did. When I was in highschool, glue, aka, "mousse," was popular. I had...

    RE: One of my nicest finds

    Mike,
    No idea what it is, but I love it. It's kind of like those Moroccan lamps you see from time to time that are all faceted. Great find.

    RE: Better Photos of My Newest Druggists

    It's tough to photograph the embossing on a bottle. It's hard to get the light right. I find it's easier to just take a rubbing of the embossing. Comes out really crisp and readable. Just a...

    RE: show some skin...

    Thanks Rick. I'm maybe going to try to post some better sized, better focus pics because the amount of detail is pretty mystifying. Someone spent a LOT of time.

    RE: show some skin...

    So, this is a side view. You can clearly see, it's made of laminated layers of skin! Don't know who's or what's skin they used, but it's definitely skin. Ewww.

    RE: show some skin...

    This is the other side...It appears to be some sort of "lesson" or psalm or something.

    show some skin...

    I found this curious thing at a garage sale the other day. It's hard to describe. Someone has taken layers of some sort of skin and sewn them together to form a little folding "booklet" type thing....

    RE: Year 1845 or not?

    This isn't an 1845 bottle. It was made in an automatic bottle machine. It's after 1906. Here's the thing though, just cuz it's not seriously old, doesn't mean it's not a cool bottle. Most (all?)...

    Buster,

    This is a pic of a rubbing I made of the bottom of the bottle. Way easier to take a rubbing than trying to get the light right to get a pic of the embossing. It's an "R" in a...

    RE: a pretty cool old amonia

    I wondered the same thing about the cap. I think the bottle is maybe 1930's. It has the exact same neck/lip as a soda bottle. I wonder if it had a cork lined bottlecap. The bottle isn't threaded....
