    Howdy and Nehi embossed art-deco bottles

    Today was a bright sunny day so I went out and did some bottle hunting again. Nothing too intense except the embankment was about a 45 degree hillside. It was an area I hadn't searched before because it gets too thick with foliage later in the year. I was going for quality rather than quantity because there were a lot of common junkers. Then there was this. I literally prayed there was nothing wrong with it when I saw it laying by itself. It's one of the most flawless bottles I've found in the wild. I believe this is a Glenshaw bottle because of the coding below the lip. GC on one side and 69 on the other. But I don't think this bottle was made in 1969?! So what does the code mean? I'm leaning towards this being a 1920's or 1930's bottle. What do you think?

    Then a little later I found this Nehi bottle from Uniontown, PA. A nice Owens-Illinois Duraglas dated 1960. Not quite as great condition as the other one, but can't complain.

    Thank you. It's the first one I found. If I didn't find one soon I was going to turn to Ebay!

    yea, that Howdy is really cool. Hard to believe it was in the woods for so many years and still looks to be in great condition.
