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.
I pull the first one out & see no Slugplate or name & think it's a slick. the top or blob sure looked attached in the hole but once I pull it out it Pops off. Clean break, it will glue back on. Then...
