    1976 Anchor Hocking Pint Bicentennial Jar, still full!

    I'm in a bind with this jar. I found it in the woods like this, with contents still inside. I don't know what is in it. Maybe apple butter? Anyhow, the lid is completely stuck. Nothing I've tried has worked. I'm about ready to get a Dremel tool and cut the lid off. But there's risk in damaging...

    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.

    1974 Anchor Hocking Retirement Bottle (43 Years)

    I recently acquired this bottle that was made in 1974 at the Anchor Hocking Lancaster, Ohio plant, given to the late Ralph Newkirk for 43 years of service. It is extremely rare and I cannot find another example of it. Note the 3D look of the bottle and the interesting scene with a man working...

    Clicquot Club embossed clear bottle with no number marks

    I used to live in Millis where Clicquot Club was made so when I found this bottle I picked it up for nostalgia reasons. I was researching it and others similar seem to have No 8 or a letter/number on the bottom. Mine has none of these and had some air bubbles in the glass. It says, CELEBRATED...

    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?

    Glass maker for Sprite embossed NDNR bottles?

    Today I found my first Sprite bottle worthy of keeping. A 1977 embossed 10 ounce, no deposit, no refill in perfect condition. Problem is, I can't find any logo or glass maker on the bottle. On the bottom it has 77, 226, L, 1191. So who made this bottle? Thanks for any help.

    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...

    Valodi Diana Sosborszesz Liniment Bottle

    This is another bottle I found last week in the woods. I looked on Ebay and there's only one of them. On here a search turned up nothing. On the bottom all it has is a "K" and then a number 1 inside the machine mark. Does anyone have one in their collection?
