    Agree with those who posted on the left and middle bottles.

    Dominion Glass bottles with a single digit on the base are almost always pre-1940 based on my observations. I would guess late 1930's...

    If there is no maker's mark, then you would need to research which company Pond's contracted to make their jars. Some large companies actually bought machines and made their own. Once you figure that...

    Good research. Owens-Illinois introduced Duraglass in 1940, so it must date from 1940 or later. There was some overlap in switching from single digit to two digit date codes. Beer and soda bottles...

    Yeah, I'm only familiar with the later designs for Whistle. I did search Google, but I could only find the smaller (6.5 oz) version of this particular bottle. I did come across one 32 ounce that was...

    They're decently attractive as far as modern bottles go. I used to drink it fairly often in my late teens, but I didn't bother saving any. I'd agree there's some potential collectibility. Given the...

    Dug the other day... any info appreciated. Shown with Felix (10 oz?) bottle. Both were dug in the same area, but I think the Whistle is the oldest of the two.

    It's prime digging season here. Finally starting to dry out and not too overgrown yet. Already had encounters with bees and mosquitoes, though.

    I've found the small version in clear, dated 1945 and made by Owens-Illinois. Same texture, same everything except for the color. I'd assumed mine was soda, but I'm just guessing.

    I was surprised...

    That style of maple syrup bottle was registered in 1933 (the base should say "RD 1933"), but they didn't switch to a screw top until many years later. The early ones had a crown top and thicker glass...

    Yeah, that's pretty much my thoughts. There was lots of evidence of 60's stuff and not much else, including on the fill wall beside the road.

    What I do know is that this road didn't exist in...

    I haven't been back to this place in over a month, but here's one bottle I didn't post before.

    It appears to be a miniature whiskey bottle with a (crude) tooled top and a rounded base. It's just...

    I was out following some leads on Sunday and I located a town dump that dates back to 1922. I poked around a bit and dug a couple feet down, but didn't find much more than 1960's shards. I found some...

    You're both kind of right. Most of what I find here is junk. I leave 95% of it, and I probably still take more than I should.

    It's a Hiram Walker & Sons whiskey bottle from Canada. I'm not sure how long they were made like this, but I'm guessing it's from the 1930's-40's. I dug one like it in a 1940's dump.

    Those are some nice sodas and beers. Hard to believe they were left, though perhaps they're common for that area. As mentioned, any damage, even a small chip will turn off many diggers unless it's a...
