    Oh that's great that you got an ID on the stoneware! Any idea of a date range?

    I like the baggage tag and green pepper sauce. Neat finds.

    Ditto on those finds! Especially the metal tag!

    Wow. Great whole bottles and other stuff. KILLER shards! Congrats, and good luck in 2019. I hope to start diving myself with a bud here in CT.

    Thanks Shdwn, GHop n Brazy, the brass tags apparently are quite collectible in the $25-$50 range.
    Canada here is a link for some more info on lots of different European Stoneware including the one I found, looks like as early as 1820 on up to 1870(left click mouse for translate to English)

    Hey CWD!

    So many guys I know are having hips, knees & other assorted parts worked over, replaced etc.; it is that time of life, I reckon!

    Fascinating to see all of those very old shards! And heartbreaking as well. I had a good prime season up my way, and many hours were spent, but as you say, hunting beats working ANYTIME!

    Here's a few things I found in 2018:

    It is very rare up this way to find items ( whole or part of ) of great age, but we keep trying! I hope 2019 is the best year ever for you, and all the other good hunters of old glass, crockery, and whatever else comes your way!

    Lookin Good Dan, I used to dive dry but have switched to wet suit year round so far so good just need to swim faster to stay warm. Nice bottles, like the ink. Do those rivers freeze over? Kevin

    This winter, as in some recent winters, the dreaded "Polar Vortex" has pretty much frozen most of my go to areas. With this thaw we're experiencing right now, I hope to see my fave places become diveable again.

    Being newly retired, I am pumped for the coming fair weather hunting season, as I plan to hit the water as much as the Missuss can tolerate ( it's getting easier - I'm underfoot too much these days! ).

    Wishing you great hunting in 2019!

    Best Fishes,

    Great finds! I really like that rail road tag.
