Re: My best find of 2013

I like the green Richards don't see one in that color often. Also would it be possible to get a closer photo of the bottle to the far left thanks

Re: My best find of 2013

Oldmill Ive always wanted to fin a C.A.Richards as I have found many shards in amber I was shocked to finally find one in Green. I assume you wanted a look at the barrel, the shard is a great color. It seems I always find the shard first then the whole bottle some times it takes years sometimes not so long.

[attachment=photo 1.JPG] [attachment=photo 2(1).JPG] [attachment=photo(4).JPG]My whole Westport Milk Bottle collection. My first bottle was purchased on eBay in April of 2013 and after a diligent search and a few strokes of luck from eBay I amassed a collection of 14 bottles so far. The three pictures are just a few of my favorites. The RW Tripp in the middle was my first find. The Bojuma Farm is probably one of the rarest bottles from MA and I got an awesome deal on it but need to find another for a gift...The EW Blossom is 1906 and my favorite pint in the collection. Let's hope the luck continues into 2014...

Easy for me to pick my best finds as they are my only finds. Only dug two days in 2013, plan to do more this year. By the way those are some killer bottles you found. All by diving?

BlobBOTTle Bob, that is a great looking bottle, it looks to be in great condition as well. I hope 2014 is good to you. Cannibal thanks for the help on posting. NHPharm the story of the Flag flask is one that is close to my home in southern maine, I took a close friend of mine diving for the first time about 4 years ago, his name was Mark and it was the first time he and I went together. We were in this site for no more than 3-4 minutes as I had just found the bottom of a Flag flask. I shot out of the water amazed at what I had found, I spent the rest of my time trying to locate the other half, no such luck. My friend sadly passed away 2years ago, I think about him often and feel he is in some ways watching out for me, possibly helping me find treasures. Its been 2 years since I dove this site and just before things iced up I went back just to check to see if the bottom had changed any since then. I found nothing new in most of the dive until I came upon an area I was digging last time I was there. Some time in the last few years the currents and flooding did some more digging and truth be told it must have rolled out of the side as it was just lying on the bottom. Thank you Mark.

It was a lean year for digging. The bottle that I like the most is this whittled green tall boy blob. Chas Joly. Philadelphia.It has a cool look to it.

wahoo! You sure had a good year Kevin. Way to go on finding that flag... I remember the original post when you found the base... might have even seen that at Heckler's too I think. I've posted my best finds on here when I dug them last winter, I did very little digging this year... not a year to write home about, or post much about either... That USA Hos Dept. aint to shabby either Steve!
