Today on my 1/2 hour Lunch Break I drove by a House they recently Tore down. I go straight to the back of the Property because that's where the Bottles & Privy's Typically are. And if they tear out the Concrete Garage Floor good chance they will kick up some Bottles. BUT, I look around & not much, just a few Shards like broken Hutch Top, Detroit Medicine & other variety of Miscellaneous Glass. As I'm leaving I look into crawl space hole left behind thats a big Square area but only like 3 feet deep & I see a old Broken Bottle & Cobalt Blue Hutch Shard. I look around & then see the very Bottom of what looks like a Cobalt Blue Hutch Sticking out of the Dirt. Hmmm, Wonder if broke or intact????????? LEON.

Still had original Stopper intact. Since I only had 5 minutes on my Lunch Break left I didn't have time to dig more which was devastating. As I left I seen a huge pile of broken glass the Bulldozer or Backhoe Shovel left behind. SO, I gotta hit it tomorrow Morning before it gets plowed under & disappears forever. Wish me luck. LEON.

Nice one! Even if it is more common it's still a beautiful bottle. Hopefully there are more waiting there this morning!

Went back this Morning & all I found was Broken Shards. Tons of Broken glass. My Buddy that went with me did find a nice 7 or 8 oz. Wegener & Sons tooled or Hand Finished Crown Top laying in the Mud. Nice Slug Plate & Lettering on that one & in good Condition. That's about it, A real Disappointment. Lots more to dig but getting tired & would really need a Bulldozer to get the rest of it & I'm sure there is more hidding in there somewhere. LEON.
