I usually just buy local soda bottles but it's been slim pickens here. I made it back out to a creek I've been to several times. I've found Pat D Cokes, flasks and milk glass in the past. But I always find at least one broken straight side coca cola. Found two more. I have about a dozen now. Don't know why I keep them but may try and do something later.
Went over to see a local digger a few weeks back and bought the Dr. Jayne's, DeWitts Bitter, a Florida Water and a local Putnam County Milk Bottle. The sodas he did have I already got.
There was an estate sale that had 6 poison bottles two weeks ago. All embossed. 4 cobalt and 2 amber. I drove out to buy a few but someone came in before me and bought all 6. So I picked up the H.W. Spurr for half off so it wasn't a wasted trip.
Last week was my birthday and my brother gave me this half pint Florida Milk. Pretty cool little milk bottle.

Actually I own an Equinox 600 and told my wife today I was going detecting south of St. Augustine on Saturday. Never had much luck at the beach other than pocket change and fishing weights but haven't tried right after a big storm.
Praying for those poor folks to the south. That storm was devastating. We were spared here.
