A little while back me and my friend were digging in a riverbank dump and i found a shard that said "NKILLER" on it, we had a chuckle and dubbed it the "killer" shard. I knew it said pain killer so i researched it and quickly learned it was probably a davis vegetable painkiller bottle. Ever since then its been on my mind and ive wanted this bottle. To give you an idea of how slim the pickings are here we have scratched around on many occasions and have only found 5 whole bottles, on my way there the other day i was driving and i had a vision of my self finding it. So i show up and go straight to the riverbank...i bend over to examine a green shard, while im looking at it i see something glimmer out of the corner of my left eye so i look over and i see a piece of glass jammed under 3 rocks, im thinking (just another shard but ill see what it is) and out it came...its crazy how sometimes its just your lucky day, needless to say i was super excited. I cant believe how well it cleaned up. I couldnt post the pictures without telling the story, its part of what makes the bottle cool. I hope you all enjoy.

Common Bottle but nice find. reminds me of the time I found what looked like broken shard in the dirt but as i wiped the dirt away it was looking like a whole hutch, before I even found it I was hoping to find a Faygo Hutch & thats what it turned out to be, a 1 in a miliion chance. Congrats on your find, clean looking Bottle. LEON.
