Hello All, Digger Scott unearthed this one a few trips back. I haven't had any luck identifying the symbol embossed on the bottle or the bottle type itself. After looking at the pictures for a while the style appears Japanese to me. The symbol is a circle with a stylized horizontal line above...
The team went for a dig at one of our dump sites on Saturday.
I didn't take a group shot of my bottles this time because the wind is blowing so hard outside I was afraid they would be toppled and broken.

I finally got my pics organized and uploaded from the dump dig I went on last Monday with Dirty Larry. We dug some decent bottles and a few artifacts. No Owls this time. Not even a broken one.
Olive oil or wine? I'm going with olive oil,
First one of these I have...
It has taken me a week to organize the pictures from last Friday's bottle hunt with Digger X (formerly known as Stoneware Kid). We found some common bottles and some not-so-common bottles at one of our old trash dumps.
Yay! Another Jesse Moore. A little nicer than the...
Monday I went digging with Stoneware Kid at a different dump site. Below are the finds,
My keepers. I have seen pictures of pumpkins like this, with the spider web pattern, but this is the first one I have dug,
Here it is with a slick one and a coffin flask propping them up. All...
I went for a dig this past Saturday. Found a few good bottles. Four whiskey bottles came out of the ground. Dirty Larry found two and I found two.
From research I did this bottle doesn't seem to have much money value but it's nice looking.

Hello All, I dug this small jar last month. I can't figure out why it is designed the way it is. People have speculated that it was a serving jar for small fruit with a slot for toothpicks or an ink jar with a slot for the pen to go in to. Threaded top. It is heavy for its size. I'm guessing...
I went for a dig on Saturday.
Found a pretty nice whiskey flask. /THEO. GIER/WINE CO./OAKLAND CAL./

Hello All, I wrote a description of how I clean bottles with Muriatic Acid. I am not suggesting anyone use acid for cleaning bottles or anything else. It works for me though and I just wanted to describe how I do it: How I clean bottles with Muriatic Acid. Based on my experience, Muriatic Acid...
Hello All,I went for a dig at one of my usual spots this past Saturday. After many years of digging I found my first full sized embossed whiskey. Then I found my second! Two in one day. The first one I found was not a rare or valuable bottle but I like it. It is the big, amber LT&C whiskey from...
I dug this the last time I went for bottles. The dump seems to have stuff from the 1890's to about 1914. This thing was folded up in a big wad. I carefully unfolded it and discovered that it says:

This is my first post on the site. I signed up today. I mostly lurk and look at bottles other people find. Looking at so many good bottles motivated me to get access to a site I dug in the past. Last week I went there with my cousin and we found some decent bottles. It seems that the...
