    Accepting offers on U.S.A. hospital bottle

It does have some haze and has a light coat of oil in the pictures but other than a scratch, that would polish out with a tumble...

    Arkansas crier!

    Dug these shards out of a dump recently. Id never imagined a Saratoga type mineral water from Arkansas, of all places. It goes to show you never know what will come out of the ground. To add insult to injury, several common green Congress Waters have shown up.

    PRIVY DIG HEALTH HAZARD

    I, like many of privy diggers out there have been one to believe over the years that diseases and viruses found in privy soil would be long gone in older pits. I was wrong, I have now had two friends suffer acutely from Histoplasmosis, contracted directly while digging in privies in the Ohio...

    OP Well's German Liniment

    Picked this one up a few months back at the Belleville,Il. show. It is one of 5 or 6 that was dug in Iowa a few yrs. back, you may have read the story in AB&GC. It is embossed St.Louis Mo. on the backside and the weird part is that none have been turned up through the years and thousands of pits...

    How do you explain this seam

    I picked this Ayer's cure up awhile back for resale, and noticed it had an additional seam other than the diagonal mold seam going all the way around and over the lip of the bottle. You can see the seem all the way through to the inside also. Any ideas?

    Recent dig

    I have been real lazy posting digs lately and have only taken a few pics with my phone, but we have started to get back in the digging groove despite the nasty weather.

    Wondering if anyone has any uncommon pontilled liniments for sale. I have decided to start chasing after these little guys since most of the categories I collect are hard to add to. Especially looking for colored examples of common bottles.
