I found this cracked C. V. Garrison beer bottle a few days ago. I dug it out from under about 6 inches of thick mud. It didn't have its top so I kept digging in the general area until I eventually found it. The top had been separated from the neck for so long that patina/pest had formed on the broken ends.

I have only ever found one fully intact C. V. Garrison so decided this broken one would make a good runner up to the collection.

Cleaned and carefully krazy-glued the top back onto the neck. The bottle has a large crack running on its back which extends just under the base which can't be fixed, so it's not winning any awards for perfection. On the bottom there is written "KH16" likely for Karl Hutter 1916, making this one of the later generation of the Karl Hutter bottles.
