It still amazes me, the things ppl will just give somebody, after just mentioning certain , newfound, hobbies!! This lady, one of my better customers, after casually mentioning that I started collecting bottles, said "hey, I used to collect bottles several years ago, and I have several cool bottles in the shed I'll get together and have ready for you next month"

She wasn't lying, she had a cpl boxes, each individually wrapped with paper! She said most were given to her, basically the same way I was taking ownership! Also said that some were old, or looked old, but she'd never did any real research to find any ages or values, but some were fairly modern, she just liked look!

So did she have anything worth hanging on to, or did she just have me take home some clutter?? I'll post pics of the 5 I thought may be worth keeping and hopefully you guys can tell me I hit a jackpot, but I doubt it! This first one's color isn't done justice in these pics, but it's nice! Like green and aqua had a baby! Any help with method used to make and age, would be greatly appreciated!!

You know what, I think I'll put 5 and 6 on this last post, maybe won't be any confusion

They don't appear to be anything very valuable. They all look like machine made bottles which normally are not too valuable. Keep an eye out for embossed bottles, ACLs, and milks. That first bottle looks pretty nice! In my area deep aqua bottles are hard to come by.

I knew some looked a lil more modern but I though maybe 3,4,& 5 may have had potential with the bubbles and the the cherry bottle with glass stopper may be older

For 3, I just feel uneasy about the ribbing on the base. Correct me if I'm wrong but it just doesn't quite seem like the right detail on an old bottle. But, you're right. I think 4 and 5 have a decent chance at age but probably not a lot of value. Can you give us a better picture of the base of 5? There's some writing on there and that might aid in identifying the age.
