Wow they are nice. I see the differences now. I have seen the quart in a crowntop. I recognize the pictures on the computer screen, lol! Thank you for posting the pictures they are great, Fred and of course UncleBruce.

I found this one on top of an old rotten stump. Just staring at me. I thought I was dreaming. Only 16 states had codd bottles. 66 bottlers used codd bottles in the U.S.A. with about 270 known variations. 16 variations in N.Y. New Jersey (where I live) has no known codd bottles. Here is a link to a complete revised list of American codd bottlers and variations. This one is cataloged as #51494AB only 2 variations of D.H.Smith.

The list is lacking a few. There is one from Houston, Texas that I am aware of as well as the H.F. Cleeve that is from New York.

I remember you mentioned that before. Maybe send them the picture so it can be added to the list. Most likely a work in progress.

I'll take that as a compliment, coming from a Cool Cat like yourself. I love the thing you post. You like my stuff. That's what it's all about. Share all your find and I will do the same. I have some really old stuff I need to clean up and post. Been so busy lately. Ttyl.

I think I have a New York Codd that is not listed in that link, gotta check when I get home tonight.
I have run into old links that claim 77 american bottlers used Codd type bottles. Now there has to be over that. Not counting the unknown variations. Revise the revised list. I'm sure you have it, but for others, here is the pdf to the list of american codd bottles.

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.

Ha Haa! That's what I love the best about this hunting for old bottles! You find a sight, walk around for a bit, just as you're about to give it up for the day...BAM there it is smiling up at you as if to reward you for your diligence and time spent searching for it!
