    Lightning stoppers

    I visited my uncle while I was up in Schuylkill county PA last week. He has a collection of local bottles, labels and advertisements. He gave me these lightning stoppers before I left. Most of them are from Pottsville, and one is from Mahanoy City, and the other from Scranton.

    Nice, those can be hard to find in good shape with good writing you can read. Lots of times the writing is worn off. Nice Score. Congrats. LEON.

    I forgot to mention, all of these are dump finds.

    Nice bunch of porcelain stoppers. They make a nice collection and don't take up much space.

    I do like branded porcelain stoppers and think they'd make a neat collection, but they are, as others are saying, hard to find in good condition on their lonesome. I've only dug up one intact, myself.

    Same with me I have only ever found one. My stopper I found has a faded but still readable SLS monogram in a circle on it.
