Brand new to the forum here so I thought I'd introduce myself and say hello.
Grew up on northeast PA, and spent many days shooting and breaking old bottles with my brother and friends. Once I had kids and we started spending more time in the woods, we started bringing home bottles to clean up and just look at. Started getting into metal detecting and slowly but surely became more interested in old bottles as we would find them associated with cellar holes or just random dumps in the woods.
Fast forward to the last few months where I've ended up in the possesion of many 100s of bottles through trades and from a stash in a relatives house (mostly garbage). I've been going through them and trying to sort them out. I started by recycling 100s of bottles that were clear with no embossing.
I recently started taking pictures of the bottles and posting them on a metal detecting website but as I research them i'm often directed back to this website so I thought it was time to sign up.
Love the amount of information people have here and share.
I think I correctly made an album with pictures and descriptions of ones I've gone through so far

Reason: created album
I am also new to digging for bottles, and to this forum as well. I was introduced months ago to digging and it has became a hobby that I quickly fell for. I am still learning and may seek others here for help occasionally, but I am enjoying seeing finds from all across the Nation and I look forward to getting the chance to get involved in the history of antique bottles.

I pull the first one out & see no Slugplate or name & think it's a slick. the top or blob sure looked attached in the hole but once I pull it out it Pops off. Clean break, it will glue back on. Then...
