Hello,

Well, I found a couple of criers today as well. The first was a bottom part of a blue pony bottle. Beautiful color. And the came this: a square bottle with weak embossing on one of the two remaining sides as follows:
...EKER
...TENDORF (or ...TENDORP?)
...RINGEN

Has anyone came across this one? Thank you, guys.

Are you in the USA? This shard may be from an imported bottle. Looks old though. Looks like a good spot to keep on diggin!

Hi Marty, Yes, I'm in New York. My bottles come from the ocean and I know this spot is old - I pulled a lot of cool bottles out of there. The bottle does look German (or Dutch?), I'm hoping someone saw one before.

Hi Kosty, I thought they looked very worn, as though they were in water a long time. I hope someone on here will help you with those in the future. Could you post some pics of your finds? I'm sure you found some very interesting ones!
Are you in NYC? Stay safe.

Marty, some spots off Long Island are littered with bottles, and over the years I found quite a few sodas, beers, meds, flasks etc., so just to limit myself to square ones, here are two bottles that were found a few years ago in close proximity to the spot where I found the shard yesterday: a 7" Casswell Hazard and an Udolpho Wolfe's Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps
