    Got out last Saturday, Found 1870's hole.

    Found a nice big 1870's hole full off bottles, unfortunately most of them were broke, probably got 20+ bottles but probably left another 20+ broken in the hole. Many from Saginaw & Bay City. Also a unknown only known Geo Norris Amber Quart Blob from Detroit. LEON.

    The holes in this sandy area are very shallow, anywhere from 2 feet deep to 4 feet deep. This hole was maybe 5 feet deep. The bottom of hole was about 1/2 foot to 1 foot thick layer of nothing but broken bottles & shards. LEON.

    At Yesterdays bottle I asked around, asked all the advanced old timer bottle experts if they ever seen or heard of the Amber Norris Quart. They all said NO. But one guy, Bruce Heckman keeps well detailed records of known Michigan bottles & said Supposably it's only known to come in Aqua. So gotta be a rare one. LEON.
