    You heard it here, shard collecting is more fun than high end bottle collecting. Less stressful! Great great shards there Kevin thanks for posting

    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.

    Wow! Such an amazing diversity of objects! I feel your pain...to see a beautiful specimen only to find that it is smashed. All really interesting and beautiful in their own way. Thanks for sharing!

    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.

    Beautiful stuff. Amazing how many flasks are in those waters. That pottery rim section is a killer.
