No legal in NJ either. I can go upstate. There is a dirt road that people use to access the Hudson River. It runs between the north and south bound lines. Very odd, you can drive for miles. My friends property is right along the tracks.

It is also not legal in NY. I've been questioned 1 time as I was digging out a nice whole mr Boston bottle. The officer loved the reason I was out there at night. Told me to go home.

Yes molds that was the word I was looking for at first I found them near where I found some bottles all the same size shape and I just grabbed them cuz I thought okay these these are weird they shouldn't be here.
Always a possibility they are something else but not 11 or 12 different ones some the same but they just look like the inside of some of these bottles. I will make a note when I get home from work in the morning to take some pictures of those molds.
Give me some of my research so far do you know that downtown Jamestown the guys who got a patent for an upgrade on mason jar lids I believe the ones with a little groove in the top to hold the metal wire he lived in Jamestown for a long time and had a business and I found some of those lids quite a few actually.
Thinking to myself it must have been a last bottle and jar manufacturer right here cuz it was many there was still so many some broken I'm home but all of them are cool and I collect all the pieces I can find when writing on them.

Can you post a picture? I'm having a hard time imagining what you're describing, a mold should be an imprint of the outside of the bottle, not the inside. There was no mold for the inside, they'd never be able to get it out. I've never seen anything shaped like the inside of a bottle, if that's what you found I guess it could be something contained in the bottles which solidified and then was left behind when the bottles broke.

I never said digging was okay. I said the service road is used by everyone in the area. I've walked the tracks and found insulators. Goodnight officer. Lol!

Again I'll be more discriptive. What I assume are molds work for bottles shaped anything but long cylinder like maybe the necks of bottles. I posted pics.

I didn't find these in the bottles though. Near them, within 6 ft. And other areas but all within 6 ft of the battles.

Yesterday's find. After work still checking out what the rain revealed.
Mason jar lids,Menley and James jar and tiny bottle.
Interesting facts the Mason jar lid that has the raised top which is for a wire to sit in and not come off the jar when it's stored, the man who invented that and has the patent for it had a shop in the 1890s here in Jamestown right where the police station sits today it's crazy. A little piece of History.

A mess aren't they, make my hand black but easy to wash off. The bigger ones on the right side of your hand were used to power the old style telephones.

I took my two youngest kids fishing near the railroad tracks of course I have to falls and of course we went and look for bottles. My son and I were standing on the hill digging and came across but I thought was a whole bottle and he was correct it was the 13th one of its kind that I found complete and it is a clear one on here another alcohol bottle.
Will be the first time that we actually started digging into the dark layer that I know holds most of the whole bottle. I'll post more pictures but we found a lot of pieces of pottery and a soup bowl that wasn't complete but we put it together after we got all the pieces gathered we were able to complete it. Amazing colors.
It also found it an old sign ceramic on metal for chewing tobacco in a pouch interesting thing for finding and I don't think we will exhaust the site and for a very long time.
I'm new to this hobby but I'm definitely hooked.
