Well looks like I am going to strike out on that color phase. I finally remembered the name of the area where I did most of my digging/scraping and it was on the south side of the Canal in an area called Culebra. The name Culebra was at one time called Gaillard Cut. I also dug over near Fort Sherman on the Atlantic side, but digging there was like digging in a muck pile...Your shovel would make this terrible sucking sound when you tried to get a shovel full of dirt out of the hole. Not much fun and did not dig there very much, but some really nice bottles came out of the area. Never made it to Bocas Del Toro, if I had I may have found a rooster bottle...I traded another digger in Panama a very nice Washington Flask for the one and only rooster I had and it was broken beyond repair when shipped back to CONUS in hold baggage. I did see one on display in the Pan canal museum in Balboa and thats how I found out there was a Rooster bottle in Panama. I'd like to go back and dig my butt off in Bocas Del Toro!!!!!!!!
