Heartbreaking to see such broken beauty and to dream about finding them whole again. What is it about old bottles that draws like a magnet. Sometimes I sit with a Warners Safe Cure bottle in my hand and wonder who was drinking from it and why.

Thanks Njsrr Fragments and broken rare examples definitely have value. Sandchip that spiral top is insane, Bram if you want to post your NH shard mystery w story please do.,Kenaifrank I hear you on that I always have that feeling. I also when finding beer, soda, whiskey (mostly), wish I could go back in time and drink it and see if it was any good. Mdnishimoto, There is always the next time and eventually our persistence rewards us.
Some sal****er finds here the Chamber Pot I am told is early 1700's. The crocks were all damaged.
One of my favorite shards, still searching for a whole one, Dr Browders Compound Syrup of Indian Turnip. This shard was the first flask I ever found. I found it diving on a snowy day and as I was walking back to the car with all my gear on, my prize in my hand. I did not see the ice patch covered in snow. Down I go , w a millisecond to think rather than break my fall a decision to save this bottle from further injury is made. The body will have to take this one for the team. As I lay there on my back n side in pain n agony I look at my bottle facing up to the sky. Yea it was worth it, now how the hell am I going to get up.
RCO, that version is definitely harder to find and none have shown up on ebay for awhile, but they usually aren't too expensive when you do see them. That bottle also comes in a neck label variation...
Hello, can anybody help with this one? Kind of shaped like a Duffy's but is older. Embossed with either a WBD or DBW monogram with an American flag (I'm saying American as it has stripes and a star)...
