    Another American / Canadian bottle collection found.

    Some of u members mite remember last year my friend Mel bought a bottle collection from a widow, she was selling of her late husbands collection. Most were American made bottles. I posted many of them here. The widow recently put another collection she had hiding in the bushes on the market. I bought this collection. There are over 200 items , American and Canadian bottles, 8 jars, 101 marbles, 1 poison that I already posted and 4 insulators also posted. It took me a week to clean them , it will also take time to photo and post them. It is to bright outside today for picture taking but I managed to capture this one. I have never seen a little gem like this before, seems to be a midget pint ( squat blob top ) wine or beer bottle. Is it an iron pontil ? It also appears to be a 4 piece mold, 2 seams go to the shoulder, stop at the shoulder seam, then keep going to the bottom of the neck, then stop. Anyone ever see one like this ? Stay tuned, the next week or so I'll be posting most of them, I need time and an overcast day to take more pictures. I will allow the American bottles to go to their proper home towns if someone wants them. Just P M me. Thanks for looking.

    Hey Daniel,

    I'm looking forward to seeing these bottles. This one I'd call a dumpy seltzer in form. A British bottle, i believe it is. What's the capacity?
