Sorry for the terrible camera quality. Anyways! I'm new to bottle collecting, and I have these 2 bottles that are quite the hassle to find stuff about!

The first is made by Anchor Hocking, is a 2 part mould, and a screw-top. I believe it may be a little older than the 80's, as the logo is a H with an anchor going through it.

The second may be a local milk bottle. It was made by Thatcher Glass Manufacturing, and has a large C on the bottom, along with a 42 and the MTC logo. It's a 3 part mould, with a stop top. The printed text has worn away, leaving just a "shadow" of it on the glass, and it's half-readable in the light. The front says "PROTECTED MILK Sealed in cellophane" and the back looks like it says "CLOVER Dairy Progress, PA" with small clover designs. I'd love to see the bottle intact! If anyone knows how old they are or what they were supposed to look like, please let me know!

Welcome to the forum! The milk is from 1942. The other bottle is a generic general-purpose household bottle, could have held anything really. It dates from roughly the same era as the milk.
