    Richmond KY Coca Cola

    I picked up a Richmond KY Patent Office Coke for $1 last week. I can't find many others, is this a particularly rare one? It has a bruise on the "Patent Office" side, but is otherwise quite clean. Pic in a few

    Ah, thanks! The booth I got them from had Paris KY written on the tag, I was just going by that.

    Ky Meds

    Anyone out there have Ky medicine bottles? I'm finding out about new ones every day, and cannot find a dedicated thread for medicine bottles from Kentucky. Will post some of mine later today.

    Still looking for KY bottles

    I have one large, complete Cassell's drug store bottle from Paris(doesn't say Paris on it, but that is where it is from, going by what I heard), and one small one that is damaged. As for Nicholasville, I have a Nicholasville Bottling Co soda bottle, with very weak embossing. Pretty rare, and...

    Any Bottles From Towns Or Cities That No Longer Exist Or Are Now Ghost Towns

    Well, not sure if it counts, but in the small town next to where I live(Brodhead, 1500 people, as of 2019), there was a dairy called Houston Dairy(at one point called Houston & Poynter). My elderly next door neighbor worked there as a teenager and, 20+ years ago, had a lot of the bottles in his...

    Still looking for KY bottles

    I have Frankfort, Lexington, Nicholasville, Louisville, Paris, and a couple from Richmond. I have a few from out of state but those do not go with the theme of what you are looking for. Mostly soda bottles. Are you interested in any from those locations?

    Schlac & Weissert

    I picked this up a year or two ago at a local antique shop for I think $20... *hides face* I normally never buy bottles more than about $10-$15 but I had never seen another one before, and it had been there quite a long time. The base has a big chip taken out of it and a crack which can be seen...

    Toy? What is this?

    Long story short, part of the soil around my house is from a trash dump from the 60s. When digging a new ditch, we found a load of things, mostly glass pieces. After rainstorms, more stuff from the dirt piles comes to the surface. Found this today. It is diecast, with flakes of red paint and...

    Some rusty relics from last night's dig

    Ah, yeah that one is too far gone. I'm amazed it still looks recognizable, I found the remnants of a 1970s Nylint trailer in the woods behind my house, it was just two pieces of "metal"(rust, with hints of metal, lol) with two plastic wheels. The Hubley is diecast and cannot rust, as long as...

    Some rusty relics from last night's dig

    Can it be restored? I'd need more pics of each, and one of the Hubley without the caked on mud. The Wyandotte... Maybe

    Springer's of Louisville

    I just love paneled sodas! I picked it up a few months ago, I do not remember how much or from where, but it was most likely under $10. This is the only other embossed Louisville Springer bottle I can find, and it is quite different...

    Some rusty relics from last night's dig

    The first truck is most likely a Wyandotte. I found a very similar one here: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-wyandotte-small-dump-truck-1853394222 The second truck is a die-cast Hubley Mack Bulldog stake truck. I have the steam shovel truck I'm restoring, yours should clean up...

    Triacol Alpers (Finally)

    Jeez, its been almost a year since I said I will make a post about this soon. Lol Anyways, here it is. I found this in an antique shop on Ocracoke Island for about $30. I was told it was found in a sandy privy locally, although what little research I could do showed that it probably came from a...

    Pricey bottles

    Haven't dug many, but I got a slightly damaged amber straight side Coke from Lexington for $1. Granted, its not worth a whole lot, but more than what I got it for!
