Had a chance to probe the dump I found the NBBG Co bottle this afternoon.
Bricks, broken crockery, a E R Durkee & Co fragment then finally whole bottles.
Really happy with the Tip Top Bottling Works from Blytheville. I found one around 50 years ago and doubted I'd ever find another.
Horlick's Malted Milk, Racing WI
H J Heinz Co 138 bottle
Another Armore Top Notch Brand Grape Juice
Plus an old flask, pre prohibition,
Medical/extract bottle and an old drinking glass that has an amethyst tint.
Still no hutch, but a good day for me.

Is the green color from black light (vaseline glass)?

I don't think though I'm definitely new to all this. There isn't a mark or seam on it, I felt like it was a drinking glass. I found another like it, but broken.

Finished what I could with this spot. There's more closer to the water, but the hole seeped through entirely to fast.

A third Tip Top Bottling Works Blytheville Ark, I found 3 others that were broken.
Armour's Top Notch Brand Grape Juice
H J Heinz 138 & 69 jars

An AB bottle in bluish green,
A mystery bluish green bottle. Only marking is B 202

Christmas lights have to come down tomorrow then a bee keepers conference this weekend. The hutch will have to wait.

With most of the area I search waist deep under water, I still found a few things this week. Had a 5 year old with me that has a pretty good eye for marbles. Finished the day with 4 to my 1.

Most excellent, anything to keep the young ones off the internet is a good thing.

Needing a cheap double boiler for bees wax, I ran into a junk store to see what I could find.
Didn't find one there, but I did find this. This years honey is going in here.

Pretty slow around here waiting on the lake to drop, but I finally had a chance to search a bit today.
Hick's Capudine good for headaches colds and grippe, a purple tint Vaseline and two aqua stopper tops of some sort.
Broken crockery, Mason jars, sodas, and liquor were much more plentiful.
This looks like a promising spot if the water level will cooperate.

Wow, that neck looks like it came from an absolutely massive cathedral pickle bottle! I'd love to see one of those intact.

The broken neck to the left of the cathedral might be an Old Crow whiskey. In any case some promising finds. Congrats.
