    Really like that walking stick Robby! Really neat way to re-purpose a beautiful old artifact. Good job!

    Man- O -Man! What a find, and I bet the find pales in comparison to the story behind it!

    What Happens to You’re Collection When You Die?

    I agree with Snigl. Most of the younger generations have no desire for collecting anything. I myself collect bottles, guns, knives, and coins pretty much in that order. I'm 61 so needless to say I have amassed a substantial amount of dollars in various safes and display cases. Since this is a...

    U.S.A. Hosp. Dept.

    Hey Sand, I remember in an earlier post in this thread, you said Tecumseh had a table with a lot of these U.S.A. bottles in different colors for sale down in Georgia. He is the gentleman I bought this last Cobalt pint from. He's a super nice fellow.

    Thanks Sandchip! I sure wish I was able to still get out and dig. I miss that. I really do.

    U.S.A. Hosp. Dept.

    Hi Guys, just crossed another Hosp. Dept. bottle off my list. 6 1/2" Cobalt pint. Only got a few more on my bucket list before I croak and pass the glass to the next collector!

    Love the cups and saucer. Any idea of the date on those pieces?

    Any point in keeping blank pre-1900 bottles?

    Hey Screwtop, would you like a few bottles from before 1890? I have a ton of them and they have a little provenance. They are from an Indian Wars era fort in the panhandle of Texas. This fort was in operation from 1875 to 1890. It's the same fort I dug all those U.S.A. Hosp. dept. bottles. Fort...

    Diggin' In Virginia - relic huntin' success

    Excellent digs screwtop! I know you had a blast! I am an avid relic hunter myself. That was what I was doing when I found my first bottle. I guess one hobby kinda goes with the other.

    1st good find of the year!

    That's a very cool bottle! I agree with Canadian bottles. Most are much more plain. It's in great shape too. Freshwater dive?

    U.S.A. Hosp. Dept.

    Thanks guys! I love these Hosp. bottles. Glad ya'll like them too. Jim they are a scarce bird. Our old friend RICKJJ59W had one years ago and I kept hounding him about it. Said it was the only Hosp. Dept. bottle that he ever dug as I recall. He use to show it to me from time to time just to...

    U.S.A. Hosp. Dept.

    Thought I would post a couple more of my more scarce ones. They are both aqua but what makes them more rare is their lip. Very rarely do you see an aqua quart or pint with a blob top. Most always they have a flange type collar. Unfortunately I didn't dig either one of these. Had to drop some...

    U.S.A. Hosp. Dept.

    Well I consider myself completely blown away by the selling price of that 2.5" cobalt U.S.A. Hosp. Dept bottle on Glass Works auction #129. I would have guessed $600 on the high side and $350 on the low side. That little puppy went for $1300.00!! At least 2 people sure did want it badly! :D
