Nice find! They usually don't have the cap anymore. I recently found one too. Not even sure what I'll do with it. But I don't think people threw them away too often. Maybe I can find a replacement cap for mine. It's a Hazel-Atlas.
That's cool. I know some bring them home. Just not something I am interested in doing. Usually I only have enough pack space to carry out the good bottles, Then at home I don't have a lot of space left either.
Same here! Hutches are made so thick and strong, I don't know why they always have to be the broken ones. The thing that bugs me most is the most common bottles always seem to survive. Like the Heinz model #257 bottle lol. They are everywhere.
I have been going in the woods about once a week. That is all the weather allows right now. I brought home a few things but nothing amazing. Just wanted to add this broken Schaller's bottle for documentation purposes. It is from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have read that the brewery existed from 1896 to...
Your bottles came out great. I'd also like to recommend using rice to shake and clean the insides of bottles. Because of how it's made, the rice can get into all the small areas where the dirt might be stuck. And it's inexpensive too.
It is a real bottle and not a reproduction because Patent D bottles were not reproduced. However the December 25, 1923 patent "Christmas" Coke bottles were. And Seattle was one of the cities reproduced for that.
