    Ebay Seller scam?

    Perhaps the winning snipe bidder didn't follow through with payment, hence re-listing? Did you try to message the seller directly? Sure if this was the case he should have contacted the next-closest bidder...certainly seems fishy... but there are a lot of odd people out there and logic need...

    My weird bottle of the week-

    Is that a ground lip? Pretty sure Canada Dry didn't have anything but crowntops (but would be interested to be proven wrong)

    Can you identify? Part 2.

    Seems kind of counter-intuitive to have an insulator made of metal? If not an insulator, is it some kind of cleat from a dock for tying off your boat?

    Toasted bottles

    Yeah, maybe an art project or something. Although bottle collectors might not see much value in them, there might be somebody inspired to repurpose or do something with them.

    Hello from Ontario Canada!

    Welcome to the site, I've noticed a couple other Ontarians around. If you only have 4 bottles, you've got a lot of room to add to your collection, which is a good thing, right?

    Picked up Killer Rare Bottle.

    Cool, but now I'm curious how many other bottling works a small obscure town would have supported? Haven't really thought about it before

    Advice on finding railroad dumps?

    Not sure what the laws are in your area but most railway property is private and punishable by law. Especially if it's active. Not being critical, just a heads up from a safety perspective. And I imagine most stuff tossed off trains got the old random heave-ho.

    NEW ADDITIONS FROM THE PAST WEEK

    Neat tray. Wouldn't get away with it nowadays with Papa Bear two-fisting it, etc. etc. I mean what kind of example is that to set for your cubs?

    Most common things (other than bottles) found on digs

    I enjoy reading the experiences you all have while digging. And not being a digger myself, wondered if there are things that show up more often than not in bottle dumps: marbles, coins, ceramic dolls, etc. It makes sense they haven't decomposed yet (compared to other refuse of the time). Or...

    Recognizing our members with disabilities.

    Have you tried any social assistance programs or hospitals in your area? Sounds like you're going through a tough time and they might be better equipped to make that journey a bit easier. Stay strong. When dealing with tough times, I recall song lyrics to the tune of "suck it up, tough it...

    Neck fragment, is this design called a "double ring"?

    Found this today, lots of other broken glass in the area but this is the only one that *might* be identifiable, since it's a neck. I figured mid-century bleach or something like that, but the closest thing I could find online at sha.org referred a similar design as a "double ring"? Any input...
