    I have another one of these bottles

    Hello,

    Back in the late 1990s I actually found one of these bottles buried in the bank of the Cumberland River just south of where Puckett Creek enters the river near where the Blackmont train depot used to be. I was wading the river, fishing, when I saw a small piece of the bottle in the dirt. I figured it was going to be broken, as usual in these cases, but as I dug it up I found it was in near perfect condition.

    At the time I tried my best to find out information about it. I asked around, posted to a Wallins message board, but no one knew anything about it.

    This past weekend, I got the bottle back out and thought I would look around online to see if there was anything new. That's when I found your thread from several years ago. It is great to know there is at least one other of these bottles out there. However, on my bottle there is no typo. Wallins Creek, KY is spelled correctly on the bottom. That means they at least had two molds or fixed the mold after your bottle was made.

    I have attached some pictures. It's hard to find the best background to appreciate it, but you can see it's the same bottle.

    Hey DD. Thanks for sharing your bottle. You are right there are 2 different molds of this bottle. I located one that has the correct spelling. My guess, the bottle I have is an error on the part of the mold maker.

    I have since found a few more styles from Wallins as well.
