These 2 Bitters are pretty rare, I only know of 2 of each known to exist. None of the big Bitters Collectors have them & most never heard of them or seen one before. LEON.

The only Hartwell Bottling Works Hartwell Ga bottle that I’m aware of besides a fragment of a slugplate I dug about 5 years ago View attachment 212320

Not a bad bottle, if it wasn't in such crappy condition. :) Really, that is absolute killer. That would have to be one of the top Georgia crowntops, at least in my book. Put my name on it!

Those are both incredible. Did you dig the dimock's? I remember seeing the thread you posted about finding the Herzbergs at an old house

No, Didn't dig the Dimocks. I did dig or picked up the Herzbergs off the ground after some Construction Workers were kind enough to leave it behind in a dirt pile after tearing down a House. Both Listed as Extremely Rare in Ring & Hams Bitters Book. LEON.

There is nobody in the Paterson N.J. directories by this name or anything close to it, there is no mention of him in local newspapers, he's a mystery man, and this is the only example ever found...

Another only documented example, Paterson N.J.'s only pontiled beer/soda bottles are the 1850 Archdeacon mineral water bottles in green, the blue example on the left in another only documented example to date on the NJ Bottle Forum, and I'm honored to be it's current caretaker...
