    Bottle Digging book Thanks!

    Wanted to say thanks to all of those who have bought The Field Guide to American Trash. I've sold a bunch on Amazon, and was able to set up at Little Rhody show which was really a fun time to sell books and share dig stories.

    Great Shard!

    I of course had the privilege of seeing that shard in person this afternoon! Yours is a much rarer bottle than that tombstone Woods! Yours is almost square at the base, with vertical embossing ! It's 2018 and we're still finding new awesome bottles out there! Now I'm really ready to go...

    Dug this WASHINGTON DC Amber strap side- any info?

    Hello all, if any of you are still out there :} I dug this shard while digging here in NH recently. It's Chas. Kraemer Washington DC in yellow amber, strap sided. I can't help but feeling like it would be a really scarce bottle, as there aren't a lot of DC bottles in general. Any info...

    May 29 river dive find Open Pontil Curtis Syrup in flint ! Yay!

    Hello all - Been diving a bit lately. Posting stuff regularly on my blog (theDowneastDigger) as well. I did have one dive this week with some good bottles. I was down deep in some grainy sand, digging at the bottom of a river, and dug this nice pontil. I could feel right away, even though...

    Downeast Digger back in town

    Long time since I posted here, so not sure if there are old friends still lurking. I hope you are all well, and have been finding things digging or at shows, or wherever. I've started my own blog "TheDowneastDigger", where I am going to post all of my digging and diving finds, and mix in my...

    I agree with the above, about using very hot water. Very hot tap water certainly shouldn't crack a milk bottle, but maybe start with a warm bottle anyways just to be sure. But soaking the whole bottle in a tub of very hot water should do it, but it will take time and you have to be patient as...

    Best Finds so Far

    I guess this is just a "Gloat Post" :} but sue me - I love it when diggers line up and show what they've hauled in. I'm heading up to the dive spot I've been workin tomorrow. It's lots of work, to dig/dive it, but it's a blast. Through about 15 hours underwater there, this is the best of...
