    I'm thinking it's probably British and from the 30s or so. Not made to look old per se, just from the tail end of when they were using that design in the UK years after it was phased out in the US.

    Yeah I agree, all modern reproductions or fantasy pieces I'm afraid.

    Ah yes that's the perfect spot for finding old dumps then. Definitely keep poking around, you never know what you might find there!
  4. Yeah I'm the same, I much prefer somewhere off in...

    Yeah I'm the same, I much prefer somewhere off in the woods over anything urban unless it's a very isolated riverbank or gully. I've never done a privy dig either, they seem to be pretty rare in...

    Ahh that makes sense, I'm used to etching that's a lot more transparent than that. They appear to be the real deal in that case (unless someone corrects me on that) and a very good find!
  6. I've never seen anything like that. Where did...

    I've never seen anything like that. Where did you acquire it? I'm wondering if it might come from Eastern Europe because it looks so unusual even compared to old Western European bottles.
  7. Those are beautiful, never seen anything like...

    Those are beautiful, never seen anything like them before. What are the labels made out of? They look an awful lot like ACL labels which would be anachronistic for the Victorian era. The style of...

    Usually a brand with a name like ________ Beverages would have had all sorts of different flavours. Most towns used to have a bottler like that until Coke and Pepsi pushed almost all of them out of...
  9. Ohh I understand what it is, that's a standard...

    Ohh I understand what it is, that's a standard post-1990 or so Coke bottle which originally had a plastic label on it. If I had to guess, I'd say it was made in 2002.
  10. You'll have a hard time finding one of those...

    You'll have a hard time finding one of those larger than a small household dump in the woods unfortunately, at least in B.C. The large woods dumps mostly came from trucks emptying their loads. 19th...

    That sign is fantastic! It looks like it's an enamel sign, would explain why it didn't rust, enamel doesn't rust if it remains intact. I'd be concentrating my searching in the area you found that...

    Could you post a photo? That sounds like a very odd one. "XCLUSIV" makes me think that it was used in the US rather than Mexico, and probably in the 90s or 00s, when people thought it was cool to...
  13. That really depends. In my experience the...

    That really depends. In my experience the individual household 40s dumps have almost no collectible bottles for the reason you describe, but the municipal dumps can be loaded with sodas. Businesses...

    It looks good to me, I think you made a great find! I see case gins very frequently but rarely ones this old.
  15. It looks like a shoe or stove polish jar to me,...

    It looks like a shoe or stove polish jar to me, though hard to say for certain. Never heard of Moore as a brand of polish, but there were plenty of brands out there. Odd that the embossing is...

    Rare or not, that's a real beauty!

    By the way that reminds me, I found a pictorial druggist from Halifax with a horseshoe on it last year. I should post a pic of that one of these days. Not...

    Hi Web44ca, welcome to the forum! You'd be better off starting a new thread to ask for information, as this thread is 15 years old. Your bottle could be pre-1900 but is quite likely later as well. ...

    Oh, is it a resealable tab? I've been staring at this picture for a while trying to figure out why anyone would think it was a good idea to replace the traditional aluminum tab with that. If that's...

    Unfortunately, there's very little market for 50s bottles that aren't sodas or milks, and there's a massive number of bottles from this era out there - enough that anyone who wants them can go out in...

    That's an interesting one, I imagine it went to someone fairly high up in the company since that much care was put into the display. Odd that there's no Japanese writing on it, I wonder if the...

    Sounds like that place has some great potential, looking forward to seeing what you find!

    There's definitely potential for good milk and soda bottles in a dump of that era, and if you're lucky you could even find an enamel sign or two.
  23. There will likely be a two-digit number embossed...

    There will likely be a two-digit number embossed around the heel, that will be the date. It will probably date somewhere between the 30s and 50s. You'd have to ask a local collector to find out the...

    ACLs are hard to preserve when they've been buried, I think the recommendation is generally to leave them to dry out for a couple of months before cleaning. Then when you do clean them wash the...

    Hope you make some good finds! Could be a small municipal dump if you're near a town, or it could have been some very trashy people living there during the first half of the 20th century. Both can...
