    Use the wax but carefully. I've seen the results of some ugly wax jobs on Ebay.

    Selling in lots on Ebay would probably make them sell quicker. Shipping is so expensive now, would be more worth it for a buyer to get more than one bottle at a time.

    Nice medicine bottle. I have some from that era and I'm guessing it's 1890's because of those seams. The slugplate beer bottle is nice too.

    Hey I used to drink Sobe back when it first came out. Mostly I liked the coconut flavored one. I wonder if those nice bottles were partly the reason it was so expensive!

    I like the logo right in the center of the bottle. That one must have never had a label on it.

    Thanks for the warning. Sorry about your bottles. After hearing that I think I'll stick to vinegar.

    Wow that's rough. Glad I don't get poison quite as bad as I used to. To me it seems like there's hardly a dry season anymore. Don't want to get into the weather change thing but things are definitely...

    Good idea. I will try that on an old Mountain Dew ACL that I don't really care about and is faded anyhow.

    Sounds like there are at least a few advantages to living in Canada. A longer season to find bottles. Sorry to hear of the flooding. I got Lyme disease last year so the ticks worry me the most.

    Bleach safe for ACL bottles?

    I was wondering if it is safe to soak or apply bleach to ACL bottles with white lettering that has dirt on it. Since it is so strong I didn't know if it would break down the paint or not. Thanks for...

    Yes they are common here. But hard to find one in the woods with good labels like that. I have a 16 ounce Diet Pepsi version of this which seems to be a little more rare. Since only a small segment...

    That time of year

    It seems like it came so fast. Spring is now fully underway and with the ample amounts of rain this year, overgrowth in the woods is coming in fast, like a jungle. In just a weeks time I noticed it...

    Yep it's a 1939 since there's no period next to it. Looks like the heavy thick type of glass so fits right into that time period. I never knew of this type of Dr. Pepper bottle.

    That is a nice collection of Sun Drop bottles. I agree with you. It's nice to have every little variation or type of a bottle there is. For history and reference purposes it is great. And gives your...

    It is "worthless" in a collectible and monetary sense but has value in helping you learn how to identify bottle markings. The number on the left means it was made at Owens-Illinois plant 7 in Alton,...

    That is a nice different looking bottle and the bubbles in it give it some character.

    Bottles usually won't explode. However I've had full cans of soda start leaking after so many years due to a pressure buildup.

    That is a great looking old bottle. Sadly that is what happens in many locations. The bottles get buried in rocks and debris later on.

    Thanks! It is now the favorite bottle that I own. I need to go back again and sort through the area when I have the time and patience. To see if there are any other bottles similar to this one. Also...

    The cost to ship them would be astronomical and not worth it to most. That being said, if I found some of those in the woods I'd probably take them home too. People just don't want to pay for them.

    Thanks for that info. Opened right after the Civil War era. That is very helpful and interesting! I am posting an image of the article, for historical / educational purposes. Copyright goes to the...
  23. Rare small town druggist bottle

    Just found this one yesterday. Technically found it a month ago but it fell out of my pack in the woods and didn't realize it until I was home. Figured I'd never find it again but I did. I was losing...

    Single digits on the right, with an Owens-Illinois bottle generally means it's from 1930's or 1940's. But when from the 40's there will be a period after it. So that is how Bottle-bud determined it's...

    It's from the 1950's and there's a LOT of them out there. But it's still a nice bottle. I have the embossed version from the early part of the century.
