Southeastern CT, U.S.A. Also in Adams & York Co,
I have found another great spot. This time is an old stone foundation. The basement was filled with trash and stone. Lots of glass, blobtop pieces and broken bottles. Heartbreakers. I did manage to scope out the surroundings and almost had a heart attack. I looked over at an old tree stump and there on top was this codd bottle. I thought it might be English because I have seen pieces of them in this same area. I walked over and glad to see it was embossed had the marble then I saw it was from N.Y. and that was all I needed to see. Oh boy! Doesn't look like this thing was ever in the ground. No sickness. One small crack on the lip. You can hardly see it . It is a clean crack and I should be able to repair it. Hope you like.

I got the same one recently in a box lot of 20 bottles that was $1 per bottle at a yard sale. What a steal.

~Yeah, Robby we both have the same example , tho Your embossing is far sharper / clearer than what I got which suggests to me yours is earlier with less heat and maintenance wear on the mold.
Super nice find my friend!

I saw the pictures on the metal detecting post. Yours seems to be the older aqua one. Does your codd bottle have embossing on the back?

Love your Weiss beer blob bottle. Funny how when it rains it pours. Finding that bottle is just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. I have seen online and through knowledgeable members here so many variations of bottles used by D.H. Smith. Not sure what the D.H. stands for? lol! Be nice Robert. Could have relatives still alive.
