    With the help of David Whitten from Glass Bottle marks it looks like the green bottle is likely from the 1870's and European. Just some educated guessing from him but good for now until we here otherwise He said to throw it out to the good folks on this website and I said that I did! He thought there was a pontil mark (sand or iron) from the additional pic's I sent and the fact that I could see a circular mark at the indentation point of the base and could feel a roughness as well.

    A couple more pic's of the base hoping it shows the pontil scar a little better.

    A few more cleaned bottles from the boxes:

    Amber "Dandy" whisky flask (at least that's what I think it is!) c 1910 - 1930's?

    John Lumb & Co
    John Lumb and Co, glass bottle manufacturers, of Castleford (Castleford is a town in the metropolitan borough of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England)
    c1909-c1970
    The bottle appears to be machine made with a seam line goingfrom the base to the top of the finish (2nd J L & Co.Pic). Until I saw the seam line through the finish I thought it may havebeen an applied top as the finish was quite sloppy. A friend of mine said he would say the JL&Co bottle is an earlymachine-made version, likely 1910s-1920s. Many of the earlymachine-made bottles from Great Britain can look pretty crude!!

    What a nice find!
    I've been looking for an Eno's bottle, no luck yet. I have two stoppers. Unfortunately, we live rather far apart.

    I met a local guy who just gave me the Eno’s stopper! He also had lots of other great bottles. Added some wonderful WINNIPEG bottles to my relatively new and quickly growing collection...Great guy!!!

    You got some nice stuff there! I really like those Winnipeg bottles with the absurdly long "Not to be sold" message. Not sure why they were used there and nowhere else. At first I thought the Phipp's was a Manitoba bottle and got really excited, that would be a great one if it was Canadian. Internal thread stopper bottles like that were used in Canada but I don't think I've ever seen one from Manitoba.

    Yes, those wordy bottles are fun! There are a few variants in the wording as well which helps to keep you searching! I have come across a few internal threaded stopper bottles so far here in the 'Peg but all have been European.

    I was really happy to get the Hutchinson Bottle and didn't realize until later that the Grant's bottle was only around for a short time so likely even more rare even though it was from the 50's!

    I've seen some of those blackwoods Winnipeg bottles before , maybe not the hutcheson's but some of the other ones they used . they are interesting bottles to look at , as they have so much writing on them

    There's definitely some digging going on in Winnipeg. Was there this summer and noticed that antique stores and malls had a good supply of recently dug bottles. The owner of one mall noted that her partner paddles along the Red River during the spring to locate riverside dumps.

    I plan on doing some research and going on some digs this spring as well. Lots of old brewery sites all over the city/province. Recently purchased a book called “300 Years of Beer in Manitoba” that has tons of great historical information to work from!

    I’ve talked to a number of collectors/sellers recently that have shared their stories of digging around here since the 70’s. One guy even told me he bought his first house using proceeds from the sale of his bottle collection.

    I hope I’ll be able to share some pic’s of some great finds this spring ��
