Been out of commission for a couple of years with a bad back. I had surgery to repair a herniated disc in August 2014 and I'm just now getting back to digging. I've been out maybe 5 or 6 times so far this fall with nothing to show. Things changed on Saturday though as you can see - I dug a local...
Looks like the recently unearthed bureau knob CD 780 threadless ended up in Ray Klingensmith's latest auction:

My digging buddy Dave and I were out yesterday at a dump he found last year. I had dug an unembossed blob there last year, he dug a couple of nice embossed green ones (all quarts)

It's been a while since I've posted a dig story so here goes: Dave (CanadianBoy) decided to take a break from his world travels to get out for a dig. We had done a quick dig at this spot last year and found mainly newer stuff. The dump covers probably 3 - 4 acres and is on top of perfectly flat...

The embossing reads:
B & E B.C.

Here's a few from the last few weeks, I still have buckets full to clean. From left to right:

Small Crown sealer (pint maybe?)

Here's a few finds from last fall. I finally got around to cleaning some of the backlog I've got in boxes. Some common stuff and a few interesting Canadian bottles - from Left to Right:
-Kendall's Spavin Cure for Human Flesh
-Le Grande's Arabian Catarrh Remedy
Is there anyone on the list that has any details about this bottle? I bought it at an auction sale here in Ontario, Canada. The embossing reads:
Front: B & E, B.C/ G.W. Noedel/Act
Back: THIS BOTTLE / IS NEVER SOLD
Is it possible ACT stands for Australian Capital Territory??
