I know these bottles are relatively common but I had never dug one before. I dug it out of the ground at my secret farm dump yesterday. I cleaned it up and it looks like it just left the plant! Mint! I was so happy to find it in this condition since I've been probing the area for years. Lots of broken stuff, but some real keepers. My next "want" is a Warner's Safe Cure. Oh, BTW, I uncovered an iron pontil base, broken of course, just the base. I think I have finally figured out the lines they took to dump the older stuff... more to come.

Congrats, I remember when I dug my 1st one a few years ago. Common but still cool to dig one. I also always wanted to dig a Warners Safe & Finally did about 5-6 years ago. Now I want to dig a Warners TipperCanoe? LEON.

I'd love to dig a Coca Cola Hutch also but that is Highly unlikely living in Michigan. My Parents use to live in Alabama south east of Huntsville & always dreamed of digging one in a privy or dump there but never happened.

I don't think I'll find one around here, New Jersey. The hutches I found (2) were local. I found absolutely nothing outside of the 5 boroughs of NYC and some local stuff. Finding a Coke hutch around these parts would be a miraculous find. I wish you good luck and hope you find one.
