    older metal tool ? found off a dock

    I was going to say a spatula or grilling flipper, but the curve throws that out. Weight and cast iron wasn't uncommon for most things back then and it could be a restaurant or commercial item. Fun to quiz over.

    How old is this bottle please

    The classic orange shellac residue. Very common to see, especially in New England area re-purposed bottles. It was a favorite to preserve wood trim and sash.

    Found a sign today.

    That 1st picture of it on your porch, is that your walk way garden display with half buried jugs, etc behind the sign? If it is, that's an awesome way to display a sidewalk area. If it's just junk lying around without purpose, I still love it. Rough signs like that always appeal to me as they...

    Lets see some slug plates

    Well, this has been outstanding. Just the variety of slug plates, from crowns, to blobs, to flasks, and on and on with color. I'm in the process of digging mine out, but would like to pose a question here, rather than the displaying forum, since there are so many varieties of brewer, bottler and...

    Amethyst Purple Keystone.

    Normally I stay away from them, but I purchased a heavily irradiated half gallon mineral water for the shop window. I knew it was irradiated, the seller was up front, and I liked the DEEP purple in it, could barely see through it. After less than a year in the window, the purple color lightened...

    Dr. Baldwins Apple Tonic

    Excellent. Thanks for that quick reply and info! Was hoping it was a New Hampshire or Vermont rarity, but I'll keep my dreams going. Still happy to have it, a neat bottle from England. I have a couple nice foreign bottles. Wish I had access to better research, but Google the way I use it, has...

    Dr. Baldwins Apple Tonic

    Ok, I know kind of what it is, it's an apple tonic. But other than that, I have no information on it at all. I bought it from a collector of poisons and insecticides, but he never knew anything more about it either. Nice aqua med style bottle with an applied lip, paneled, with only embossing on...

    Green wide mouth barrel

    I've got one near similar, it had a gold leaf type label applied to it. It's all but faded away, but if I find it, I'll try to get a photo that will pick it up. No name to be found, but there were laurel like leaves around it if I remember correctly.

    Various Vicks Vaporubs

    Vicks VapoRub was THE most widely used remedy during the Spanish Flu of 1918, both at home and in hospital. It put them on the map, so to speak, and they continue in business today because of it. You can research some interesting info on it's popularity of the time and it's connections to that...

    Anyone else collect this kind of stuff?

    When I got into digging as a kid, we would go to the Ogden dump north of Salt Lake. The dump was so thik with material, we would literally dig into the pit walls and just let it fall into the buckets and then bring back in the truck to go through. I was after bottles, but we would find pottery...

    Dump Truck Finds

    I used to collect the color run on those Owen Casey sodas. They are quite collectible as there are a wide range of shades from deep blue through green, but some cornflower or light aqua ones being the harder to find. Mostly 1860's with some variants. Very early California soda. Most buyers might...

    Age Query

    Looks like a bottle of mucilage like my great grandfather had on his desk. Love the old office type stuff with labels. Make a bland office look great.

    Help identifying this Root Coca Cola Bottle

    The design looks like underground roots from a tree, perhaps a play on their Root namesake. Interesting pattern.

    Paper labeled pre-prohibition labeled whiskeys.

    Would love to see some pictures of your bottles.
