I'd be interested in the Wampole if wanting to sell or trade for it. Regarding the wide mouth amber jar. Yes it is a snuff, They had several based with different dot patterns. Not sure what they indicated, possibly type of snuff or strength? Here is my Levis Strauss labeled snuff from Philadelphia.

The label makes that snuff jar so much better. Let me think on the Wampole. I may find another one or we might could trade out.
I went back to where I found it last week and dug an amazing pile of broken bottles with only a nice Febreline to show for it.
I swear someone is breaking these things 120 years ago faster than I can dig them today.

Finished till next week perhaps. An A. S. Hinds bottle and broken Kerr mason with Aug 31st 1915 patent date from Sandsprings OK were all that stood out.
Tooled olive oil jar, but its slick.

Many years ago, when I was 14, we had a Christmas party at church and as a joke he asked the older kids what they wanted.
Being a trapper at the time I asked to catch a mink.
Christmas morning I had my first mink ever. My eventual mother in law swore my dad had someone put it there no matter how much I explained the difficulty in doing so.
I mentioned that because this week my wife asked what I'd like and I jokingly told her to find a 1915 coke or any hutch.
This afternoon I found my first intact 1915 coke from Memphis, Tenn and couldn't stop laughing when I pulled it out.
Found the usual medical bottles, not pictured, a H J Heinz 183 bottle, Morse's candy, Sanford's 219 inkwell, and a Blytheville Ark NuGrape.

Merry Christmas all!

I had a similar thing happen to me twice before, makes you wonder if strange coincidence or divine Intervention from God? Nice find, Congrats. LEON.

Hey Mingoman64,

I noticed from the above five pic, the (#2) bot Norse's from Chicago. I came across a modern fruit jar with the same cursive embossment. Off hand, same company? Thanks and may the universe continue to listen to your bottle inputs. Happy Holidays.

Len, I found a Mason on ebay with the same Morse's Chicago script.
I'd never heard of them before, but guess its the same company.

Had a chance to search in between rain showers yesterday and scored a nice Mason, 3 more 1915 Cokes, these were all marked Blytheville & Osceola Ark, plus a French's mustard and Neurosine bottle.
