    Looking for Trenton NJ squats

    i don't know where you are but am guessing in Trenton or environs. If so, take a trip to the Grist Mill Antiques Barn in Pemberton. They have a lot of bottles and some, if i remember correctly, from Trenton. Happy hunting

    Strangest thing you have found...

    as you can see, it's broken and was in a "dump" area. I did check with someone i run with and i did not transgress. He agreed it was discarded and not an offering

    Strangest thing you have found...

    My favorite “strange” thing I’ve found is this ceramic wall hanging of Ganesh a Hindu god. Found on the beach of New York Bay

    Probably a stupid question

    Attached are two photos of L. Steinberger bottles from Jersey City. One with horizontal writing, the other vertical. In general, was one, vertical or horizontal in general use earlier than the other or was it simply a matter of preferred appearance? Thanks

    Dead Horse Bay - quantity vs quality

    I’m sure there is asbestos and lead everywhere there though. Actually, radioactivity was the issue

    Dead Horse Bay - quantity vs quality

    parking is at Floyd Bennet Field across Flatbush Ave. Not a problem at all but it is a 10-15 minute walk from parking to the beach. Look for the lady who has a gull as a pet and it follows her up and down the beach. If you do go, there are 3 trails in, the one on the right takes you to Bottle...

    Dead Horse Bay - quantity vs quality

    i made my first visit to Dead Horse Bay today. I doubt i will ever see so many bottles in one area. Unfortunately all of what i saw was "mid-century". But the milk glass and smalls alone would make the trip worthwhile. I am convinced that somewhere under it all there is old stuff just...

    Cobalt inks?

    I picked up these two today. Are they inks and if not, what? One is a bit lighter in weight and color than the other and says “2 OZ” on the neck. The other, slightly heavier and darker says “77” or “LL” on the bottom. Any info would be greatly appreciated

    Back to the beach

    The beach in Jersey City on New York Bay is closed 7 months a year to protect migratory birds. It finally reopened yesterday October 1st and I got to today. Almost all of what I find there is with broken pieces or modern beer bottles but I do find shells, bone and iridescent coal. Today it was...
