Past couple of days been climbing under old house crawlspaces of Abandoned house looking for old cans & bottles. I did get a real nice bottle today. got a few bottles under a few different house's but this McBride Earl & Pollard Hutch Bottle by far the best. Attic mint with mint intact Hutchinson Stopper. Probably dates between 1900-1910 roughly. Could be 1890's but no later then 1910. LEON
The Hutchinson Rubber Stopper is still intact & like new. No rust on spring stopper & rubber complete with out any deterioration. Unusual for me since most of my dug Hutches (& theres been many) have the hutch stopper pretty rough & beat up or missing all together. At least 50% of the dug Hutch's will have them still intact or at bottom of Bottle. LEON.
I got a fascination with Hutch bottles myself. Thats why I got over 200 different Michigan Hutch's. SO, It's always a thrill to dig or obtain another one. I got about 5 different McBride Earl & Pollard Hutch's & this variation is much tougher then the others. LEON.
Uncle_Jarvis, nothing to add to the earlier information except that the information about the origin of the bottle at CC Atlanta appears to hold true sans any disputes to the contrary. Would love to...
