    1915 Coca Cola Error Bottle

    I was cleaning my 1915 Patent Coca Cola bottles when I found one with a mold error. The "9" in the 1915 date more closely resembles a "7" than a "9". There is no loop in the 9 , just a straight line across the top. I can't figure out how to load a photo on this new computer. Just wondering if...

    Another Surprise From The Ol Dump

    I had about an hour Tuesday to do a little digging at the dump. Lots of roots in this area of the dump and the rust layer is like cement. Most of the bottles in this area are broken. About four feet down I saw this green bottle.[attachment=3-14-2015 123.JPG] [attachment=3-14-2015 124.JPG]...

    Any Ideas On This?

    Found this at the last dig at the dump. At first I thought that it was some type of carpenters marking chalk. But when I cleaned it, it seems to be made of stone, ceramic, or something. Any ideas? Buster[attachment=001.JPG] [attachment=002.JPG]

    Rainy Day At The Ol Dump

    Today it was drizzling rain, but wasn't too cold. I was able to squeeze in an hour dig before heading out to the remodling project. I decided to try a different approach today. Rather than dig in the previously dug area, I started a hole parallel to the dug area.It was about four feet to the...

    Rainy Day Detecting

    It's pouring down rain outside and I'm tearing out a floor in the house I bought across the street from my Daughter when I get an idea. Hey, the metal detector is in the truck. So after the floor is removed I start detecting the crawl space. Nails, nails and more nails. After I finally get...

    Surprise From The Ol Dump

    I have dug in this dump for many years off and on. Found a few hours lately to do a little digging. This dump was partially dug years ago, but the diggers did not dig to the bottom in some areas. Some places have three feet of dirt piled on top.[attachment=2-17-15 003.JPG] [attachment=2-17-15...

    Skull and Crossbones poison from the Ol Dump

    Found this small poison today at the old dump that I dig at. I almost tossed this one into the discard pile, thinking that it was just a plain small cobalt. Glad that I took a closer look.[attachment=2-17-15 009.JPG] [attachment=2-17-15 011.JPG] [attachment=2-17-15 012.JPG]

    Geared Corona Corn Mill

    I needed something to grind whole corn into something that the chickens and ducks could eat. I found this vintage Corona Corn Mill at a local antique mall. I have searched the net and cannot find any info on one with gears. Just wondering if anyone on the forum had ever seen one with gears.

    Dig Site Put on Hold

    An old building owned by the city had a wall to collapse making the building unsafe. So the city rented a trackhoe and pushed down the remaining walls. It looked like a good place to dig once the debris was hauled off. I made sure I had all the permissions to dig. Mayor says it's OK...

    Wooden Cigar Box Lid leads to History Lesson

    For the past year, since my retirement, I have been busy remodeling an early 1900s house. A better description is that I am completely rebuilding under a new roof. Last week I was tearing out the attic floor when this fell out. A wooden cugar box lid from the 1930s.

    Questions For Red Matthews

    First, I would like to say that I enjoy your input on glassmaking. I think that it's great that the forum has a member who has such a vast knowledge of making glass. I am currently doing research on soda bottle patents from the 1920's and 1930's. I am completely amazed at the number of...
