    1937 C.C. Soda Bottle

    A few weeks ago I found this bottle. From the looks of it you can see it's been through a LOT. But these bottles were made of very thick heavy glass. Even with all the fleabites, it doesn't have any cracks or chips at all. Made by Owens-Illinois Plant 9 in Streator, IL in 1937. The city of...

    1970 Overmyer Mould Company Flask

    Recently I bought this very unique and rare 1970 50th Anniversary Overmyer Mould Company bottle. It was made for them by the Hillsboro Glass Company in Illinois. The factory existed from 1961-1997. They were actually a subsidiary of Hiram Walker & Sons Distilleries and for this reason, most...

    To dig or not to dig?

    There's an area I've known of for a few years that has these depressions in the ground as if someone had been digging down. They don't seem natural. There is an upward hillside to the right and also a downward hillside nearby to the left. The holes in the ground are the in the flat area. I took...

    1971 Anchor Hocking Season's Greetings Bottle

    Another recent flask I've bought. Just in time for Christmas. This was made at the Anchor Hocking plant in Salem New Jersey. A promotional item for First National Bank. It still even has the original cork. Most of the time those get lost.

    Cork tops & Commons

    Threw together another bottle digging video yesterday. All the video clips are from a video I started in the spring and never got around to finishing until yesterday! It’s a short video with some common finds in it but it’s still enjoyable to watch none the less. My favorite finds were a small...

    Found a (Howdy) Blue Bird!

    Another bottle in a long line of heart-breakers. I came across this embossed Howdy bottle that had Blue Bird and Cherry Blossom on it. I've never seen one like this before.

    Didn't expect to find this when looking for bottles

    Part of the fun of searching for bottles is sometimes you find something out of the ordinary. I came across this old oil lamp bottle and was surprised it had no damage whatsoever. With that handle it looks like a genie bottle. Can anyone estimate the date of this? Or the approximate value.

    Looking for info on this bottle

    I'm hoping to find out more about this bottle which I believe to be from the 1910-1920 decade because of the shape and it is a cork top with some amethyst tinting. Also the texture on it is something I don't see often. Could it have been a medicine or something else?

    Mexican Coke and Sprite Bottles

    Today at the grocery store I noticed they were selling singles and 4-packs of glass Coke and Sprite bottles. And the wording on them is in Spanish. I wasn't sure what to make of that. I bought a Sprite out of curiosity and went home to find out more info about this online. It turns out the...

    My smallest bottle I've ever found

    Today while walking around in an old bottle dump near a creek, I found this little piece. Most everything in that area ends up being broken. I guess this one survived simply because it is so small. It's 2" tall and 1 3/8" wide. On the bottom there is 68 with an F under the numbers. Any ideas on...

    Question about "REGISTERED" embossing

    What year did bottles start to have the word "REGISTERED" embossed on them? Was there a law regarding this, which made the bottle makers start putting it on bottles?

    Cobalt Blue Unknown Bottle

    I was wondering what type of contents this bottle would have in it. Or what glass maker it is. I've only ever found one of them. All it has on the bottom is a number 6, which could literally mean anything.

    That time of year

    It seems like it came so fast. Spring is now fully underway and with the ample amounts of rain this year, overgrowth in the woods is coming in fast, like a jungle. In just a weeks time I noticed it changed a lot. Bottle hunting has so many variables to deal with in this time of year. High...

    Amber Coke in 1950's?

    I was wondering whether amber Coke bottles were actually produced in the 1950's. There's a person on Ebay selling some from various years and they have not disclosed whether it's an irradiated bottle or not. Seems a little fishy to me.

    Coca-Cola Japan 25th Anniversary Coke Bottle w/ Wooden Display Case

    I found this bottle and wooden display case at an estate sale and don't know the history of it. It appears to be a bottle/case celebrating the 25th year of Coca-Cola Japan in 1982. Anyone know the history of this item and who it was given to? I found a similar bottle with a wooden stand with the...
