    Great bottle! Something you need to be careful of...

    Great bottle! Something you need to be careful of are the later Byzantine and Islamic-era near-eastern bottles/vials. They are certainly old, and it's hard to tell the difference between 1,000 and...

    Re: Magnus, Nevada

    I'd go exploring, with a good strong walking stick to poke at possible loose rock in the ceiling of the tunnel. Granted, I've always liked going inside tunnels and caves so I am biased in favor of...

    Re: Danger Keep out vs No tresspassing

    The most valuable bottle I ever found was in a fenced off construction/excavation area. Didn't say "No Trespassing" so I snuck in at night several times, found good stuff.
  4. Re: Large collection of antique bottles dug up in my backyard!!

    What is that metal Automobile Association plaque/tag? Looks like that piece might have some decent value. Most of those bottles are quite common, ones with embossed lettering are what collectors look...

    Re: a painfull start !

    Nice digs, those are some good finds for the 1920s. I haven't had a fun dig for bottles after moving to Wyoming, and the one eroded creekbank dump that I found a few insignificant things in here got...
  6. Re: RE: Aside from bottles , What else do you collect ??

    You state that you'd rather avoid a debate on that which is fine, though it sounds as though you've taken the progressive ("liberal") brainwashing blue pill. No offense is intended; I was subjected...

    You can't apply soft liberal 21st century sensibilities to the brutal reality of life in past centuries. The Muslim invaders routinely brutalized their Christian enemies, and carried off literally...
  8. Re: RE: Aside from bottles , What else do you collect ??

    Uhh, I'm guessing that Case Knife was dropped by Paul Bunyan? Crazy huge! I've been adding to my Bronze-Age to Medieval metal artifact/weapon collection a lot this year, as I haven't found dig spots...

    Re: any walking dead fans

    I like the show, and also think Glenn survived, he is too strong of a character to kill off like that. I'm figuring that the guts being gobbled were from that other guy, and Glenn probably slid...

    Re: So where are the detector reports??

    I personally wouldn't bother with a pinpointer, as there is so much metal so concentrated it wouldn't really be able to pinpoint anything. Just digging/scooping the mixed metal and gravel into a 1/4...

    Re: squirrel hunting find

    Looks like an apple cider vinegar bottle to me also. Not too old but there could be other more desirable sodas and milks in that ravine, good luck!

    Re: HELP WITH EBAY PROBLEM!

    For sellers creating BIN listings/auctions, there is an option to "Require immediate payment" if the buyer buys it now (doesn't work if a best offer is accepted, of course). Simply tell them to edit...

    Re: So where are the detector reports??

    Thanks! Believe it or not, the best find was probably an old Dog Tax tag, even compared to the gold. Found gobs of wheats and clad coins, piles of marbles and other interesting tidbits and relics...

    Re: So where are the detector reports??

    I discovered another rich storm drain in September, and managed these goodies via sifting and eyeballing during the month. It's a bit too cold here to go slogging through the water so I'll be back...

    Re: Dug My First Christmas Ornament

    Nice finds, some of those pavers might be good ones. I found and sold a few "20th century pavers" for 10 bucks plus shipping last year. Ones in better shape are probably buried below the surface...
  16. Re: Old Plantation Brass Plant Duster Green Patina

    It looks like an old fire extinguisher to me, the kind that used Carbon Tet which actually is some nasty stuff.

    Consensus has nothing to do with the scientific method. Careful application of DDT...
  17. Re: I dug my first intact blob (with story on it all and in-situ pics!)

    Great finds! From the looks and sounds of it, it seems that those walls were either poured in trenches dug through an ash and bottle dump layer (hence the bottle bits stuck in the concrete) and/or...

    Re: When do you think these were from?

    The carts in their current condition are pretty much junk in my opinion, the only bits worth salvaging are the wheels and any related iron hardware, and those would be a bit more portable than an...

    Re: When do you think these were from?

    Really cool building and pictures, I clicked them all. Those old bottle shards are intriguing, think there might be intact ones anywhere? Crawlspaces full of goodies? Those industrial/freight carts...
  20. Re: Dug this coca cola bottle today and would love to know more

    That's a nice find! It's a shame that it doesn't have a town embossed but it is still a collectible piece. The C inside diamond logo refers to the "Chattanooga Glass Co. ca. 1901-ca. 1913" according...

    Re: Flea market find 7/26/15

    182 grams on a cheap scale sounds close enough to correspond with the etched and scratched 185. With the ground and polished pontil and the significant base wear it looks 100% original and legit to...

    Re: !930s Clorox bottles...

    I've never really bothered with them but if you have a decent market for 1 to 5 dollar common bottles in your area I bet they would sell for a buck or two. I've had much better success selling the...

    Re: Flea market find 7/26/15

    That first bottle looks like a 19th century European apothecary bottle with a ground-out and polished pontil where the 185 is scratched in the base. If you have a scale, you should see if it weighs...

    Those massive chunks of silver are pretty jealousy-inducing, heh. Awesome stuff! Found several pounds of brass/copper and 4 cents today, including a '44D and '57D. Pretty uneventful, hope y'all find...

    Re: The HOLE Robbers!

    Apologies if that was getting a bit out-there, but I think a solid philosophical foundation is an important starting-point. To clarify, I'd suggest a well-reasoned diplomatic approach if you come...
