    Looking for a Cleo Cola

    I'm looking to trade a large box of soda bottles. These are ACL and embossed (machine and BIM), most from Ohio and in good condition. I will trade these 50+ bottles for one example of a Cleo Cola from Crooksville Ohio. I'm not looking for a mint example, but all of the paint must be legible...

    Creekstomping find

    I was walking a local creek looking for bottles while the water level was down, and found this bad boy sticking out of the mud. Parts of it are missing, but it will sit on my shelf proudly.

    1840's privy

    Thomas Edison

    I'm guessing that this is the zinc plate from one of Tom's batteries. Found this and many dry cell batteries under a stairway, in the old telephone office uptown. Can anyone shed some light on which battery it's from? It is similar to the R.R. battery, but not exact.

    Civil war buttons

    I found one in the crawl of a cabin, but can't get it clean. Should I make an electrolisis bucket? Is there an easier way? It's pretty solid, but I'm afraid of screwing it up, as it's my first good button. Thanks for any help.

    Help with milks, possibly Ohio

    Found these in a HUGE milk dump. Many different dairies, but these have little to go on. I saw what I believe to be a sham listing for it, saying it was from a certain trains dining car, hence the "400".
