Wow, It's hard to compete with a bunch of these finds... I had to make a real hard decision on this one since most of my bottle digging has been done this year! [:mad:]. I had to choose three out of the lot x.x . My #1 : Nothin' beats a big pair of jugs! ;). Never forget that crazy cellar hole my cousin (Glassgopher721) and I found! #2 : My first Hutch. All the more neat because I had just seen a post from E-package showing off his collection of NJ hutches, and then I found one myself! :) #3 : My First Big case gin. Found among a ton of rocks after finding several broken ones in the same area x.x Looking forward to this year and all of the crazy adventures that come with it =) Best of luck to you all this year!

I got out twice last year so don't have anything to show. Starting to post other bottles I've found in the past though since I never got around to it.

Another best find from 2013 was this 1768 bible, its in rough shape but I found it laying in the dirt long after the end of an estate sale when I went back with my truck to pick up some big stuff I'd bought.

Closed out the 2013 collecting season with this specimen.

Nice form about 8" tall. Great color. Smooth base.

It was a good year for me! Lots of digging, and plenty of good buys too. Some of the "bests" were: Best new RI bottles, a Parker's Vegetable Bitters Cranston, RI

Also a Pierce & Co. Indian Liniment Providence
