    I am looking to move some bottles before the USPS postage rates go up at the end of January (again). I have various Cobalt blue medicine/Milk of Magnesia, amethyst medicine, 3 1950's milk, 2 1950's...

    Yep it's a Bromo Seltzer. Could be an Emerson. I've got a stockpile of them in these sizes: 6 inches, 3 1/2 inches, and 2 5/8 inches.

    I think I know what you were talking about. Not sure if you are still on here but I'm going to show some photos for reference purposes. While not as common as the 7 ounce bottles, there were some 12...

    40 cents each? Some seller must have been in a hurry to get rid of them. Their loss is your gain!

    Someone left a nice variety of bottles behind. Their loss is your gain. I've noticed that sometimes bottles on the surface will get "protected" from breaking or damage if they are against a fallen...

    Some more great looking bottles you acquired. Maybe someone kept those in a barn, garage, or house for many years. Because they would not look as nice if they were dug up somewhere. Get them while...

    That's exactly what I was thinking. In fact since I can't find more examples of one online I'm just going to keep it for myself. I might not ever find another one.

    Also a way to avoid the high shipping prices is to find one seller who has a lot of bottles and then buy a bunch of bottles from them in one transaction. Usually they will bundle them and you'll get...

    Everyone who responded pretty much summed it up. The "community" of bottle collectors is shrinking. I will refer to the song "You can go your own way" by Fleetwood Mac. Art-deco might have fallen...

    Oakland Maryland Coke Bottle

    Today the weather was unseasonably warm for December in Pennsylvania so I went out on a bottle excursion. Lots of broken Cokes were seen but then towards the end of the day I did find this...

    Some of the answers with this are very surprising. A full bottle absolutely adds value. Especially since these bottles are found or sold empty most of the time. The oil that was made for railroad...

    I love your collection so far. I have something you might be into. I have an extra Bob's 1956 soda bottle similar to this one in my album. I'd be willing to part with it....

    That is a nice bottle you have. I know it's going against the grain on this site, but I enjoy soda bottles from that era because they usually are embossed.

    As BottleDragon said, look for hillsides. I noticed that people would dump over hills to "hide" all the garbage so that people don't notice as well. Out of sight out of mind I suppose. Might be able...

    About 80 bucks on the coke bottles wasn't too bad. Certainly could have been worse!

    Thank you all for your comments. This area is not real far from where I found a straight-side amber Coke bottle before. So it does hold some promise. I'll go back again.
