Hello! My name is Shawn. Thank you for accepting my requests to join this bottle collecting community! As stated in my bio, I'm fairly new to the hobby, I've been hunting for about 6 months, and building a collection for about 2. I've decided to join this community because there is a lot about bottles that I don't know, I hope to learn and share my finds and collection with other avid collector's/hunter's. Below are some of my most favorite finds, both dug and bought. Please let me know your thoughts, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Thank you again!

1) This was my very first find of the year out at the old town dump. No chips or cracks and the cap is still sealed somehow even thou the contents are empty.

2) My favorite style of bottle, dug last year also no chips or cracks. Always on the hunt for stubbys!

3) A gift from Mom, first shooters to add to my collection. Original cap on Berentzen.

4) My first bottle purchase of the year. Only bought it because it has the original cap and dropper, a steal for $1 I think.

Welcome to the site, just an FYI, your #2 bottle is actually referred to as a "Glass Can" or "Handy", Stubby's were a little earlier and a different shape bottle. Cool that you found a pint size, I collect Glass Cans and "Packie" style beer bottles and have found hundreds of Glass Cans here in northeast Ohio, but none have been in pint size as of yet. I'm surprised I haven't found any yet, they must not have been very common here I guess. Here's a picture of a Stubby for reference.
