Pretty cool dump we found on state land yesterday. Great day with my daughter.

Looks like a old flat top can in the Bucket. Wonder what it is? LEON.
Ironically - I saved it because I knew you looked for them - BUT - I saved the one you can’t read (duh!)
No worries - I will be back many times. Will bring back a couple others I found

Nice Assortment. Post some pix of the small milks (and bases) when they are cleaned up
The Adirondack one is broken - but I couldn’t not take it. Here are pics of the two smallest and the medium one. Have a local large one as well that I’m told by the surviving family is a rare find! Super stoked.

Beautiful milk bottles! The painted one reminds me a lot of the Franklin Dairy bottle I have from Tupper Lake. Same font for the town name even, only difference is mine is red in color

I like the quart Delong’s a lot. The large D on the base is a sorting letter used to help them quickly sort out which bottles belonged to which dairies. Is there an mTc along the heel. If so, The center E may mean it’s made in Elmira bottling plant by Thatcher glass. Also looks like a date code in the center suction scar area. What numbers are on each side of the E. Almost looks like 3E0, which would mean 1930. Good find on all of these.

Yes there is an mTc on the heel - my research brought me to the same conclusion about the date. This is my second oldest bottle - super happy!

I recently dug my first milk bottle that has the date code of 33 surrounding the E code. Most of the ones I have dug are from late 20’s with the two digit code elsewhere on the base. This TREH is from a dairy in Hoboken, NJ Harper Wieboldt that I can’t find anything about other than a brief mention in an old paper. Solving the mysteries is half the enjoyment.
