    Black Glass Fragment Identification

    Hello, I found this bottle fragment in my creek I hunt artifacts in earlier this fall. The glass is heavy and fairly thick, I believe it is opaque due to the creek as well. The bottle fragment is heavily damaged, but notable damage includes one ruptured air bubble and half of what I believe to be a sizeable pontil scar. I am at a loss of how old the bottle is, or what it may have came from. Any opinions about how old it is or what it came from would be much appreciated. I live east of the mississippi if that helps. Thanks for responding!Click image for larger version.

    That's cool, man. Sounds like you have the fever. I caught it 45 years ago and never got over it. Welcome to both sites and we all look forward to seeing what you find next.
