    Here's another one, a gravitator, found on a small patch of hard sand in 4' of water, adjacent to the ballast-rubble remains of a very old dock. Why it turned a bit cloudy over time is a mystery to...

    I think the only reason some of my finds are so clean is that they got submerged in goo rather quickly, which acted to insulate the glass from a lot of wear n' tear, like you see in bottles that have...

    Hah! I'd hate to calculate how many hours of searching in less-than-pleasant-waters is required before a good find is made. Then again, it makes a good discovery all that much sweeter, eh?

    Hi CB,

    Indeed, there is a wide variety of round-bottom bottles to be found. Most of the ones I have are unembossed, but I've seen many types of embossed r-b's over the years. A lot of them came...

    Elbows Deep in the Muck...then, Some Luck!

    Whew!

    Hours of plowing through bottom strata, it being the consistency of a thick, brown milkshake, and BOOM! Came up with this sweetheart of a round-bottom - "Kenneth Campbell & Co Medical.Hall...

    Hi Willong!

    Sorry for the massive delay in answering your question! I use a glass cutter I bought on Amazon - it scores the bottle, I then heat the score-line with a candle ( heating time is...

    Hey C-WD! How's this for a prompt reply to your inquiry! Sorry bout that. No, there's no embossing of "Carter" on the shoulder. A knowledgeable ink collector told me that the finished top of this...

    Don't toss them away - make drinking glasses out of them!

    I've been doing that for a while now, and always pick up sweet, but topless bottles and give them a new life.

  17. Absolutely loving the hunt....

    This winter, as in some recent winters, the dreaded "Polar Vortex" has pretty much frozen most of my go to areas. With this thaw we're experiencing right now, I hope to see my fave places become...

    Hey CWD!

    So many guys I know are having hips, knees & other assorted parts worked over, replaced etc.; it is that time of life, I reckon!

    Fascinating to see all of those very old shards! And...

    Hey, dive in Bro! Other than propellers, crazed teenage wave-runner-riders, giant snapping turtles and overly-friendly carp, it's a walk in the park! :cool:

    Seriously, there are a few hazards out...

    Yes indeed I was. I've explored a good portion of the lakes & rivers in the area, and there is much more territory to investigate. I found this blob-top in the area as well, showing that bottles...

    A nice Dalley's Ink with a rare finished top, a somewhat rare, mint condition b/t quart from J.D. Brown, and an equally mint but fairly...
