    Is this a pontil on this wine?

    I dug a wine near a spot that had produced all pre 1870s stuff and was interested in this when I saw it: The arrows point to a rough ring patch that is circular around the inside of the kick up. Is this a pontil scar? I very well could be wrong, but that is what it looks like. The wine has...

    Monsanto Prototype Coke

    Here we have a heavy plastic prototype coke bottle made by Monsanto given to me by one of my dad's friends. It has a sealed cap and nothing inside as expected with a prototype. I know this was a prototype coke was experimenting with while trying to switch to plastic.. Anyone have any other...

    Can Forum?

    I've always wondered why this site doesn't have a cans sub-forum. I know plenty of people on here who also collect cans. Would it make sense to add one? I find cans when digging bottles and want to post them, but posting then anywhere else doesn't make much sense. I guess for now I'll just have...

    Assortment of some nice bottles!

    Practically Untouched mill town dump #1

    I was given a lead by a guy who retired from digging who said he dug barely any of a small mill town dump dating between 1920s-1940s and possibly older. He said that I was free to have at the rest! I dug for a couple hours last week from his small hole he started and found some stuff that makes...

    Really odd closure on whiskey bottles?

    Found these while digging all that stuff last time. I went back for the rest of the stuff including these. I washed them off and saw that they were embossed Baltimore Club on the shoulder. I tried to search online for the company but couldn't find much. These are unique in the fact that they...

    Hillarious Local Quack Cure

    Got this bottle in the box lot I bought. Found a matching ad from the 1880s. What really is funny is the claims made in the ad, especially, "The doctor has the gift to describe every pain and disease at first sight, and with his vegetable medicine and healing powers combined he is enabled to...

    Searching an old gas station/country store and its privy.

    Got permission to search a really old abandoned gas station and country store! What is even better is that the property is attached to an old dairy farm (the owner of it was the owner of the station). There is also an old privy that was blown over, but still intact towards the back. I need some...

    Another pharmacy vial with the intact label.

    Found this while digging a 1940s-1960s dump. It is plastic, but has a full label and is dated 1961 !!! The vial is from Guasta's Pharmacy from the small village of Niantic, Conn. The label also has some interesting attributes. First off the typist accidentally put dily and then corrected it to...
