Yes I have one local milk that I found at my antique shop. It is a Marin County Milk Co bottle, I dont know to much about it but I have a 1900's picture of my town and in the background there is an advertisement for It. I will upload a picture at the bottom. Are you in high school? Because so far I think I am the youngest person currently on this forum but I could be wrong.-Ben

Ben, that's so adorable a milk bottle! And that photo's advertisement is great! I looked yours up and found an identical go for about $15 on E-bay. The company appears to have had a wide variety of milk bottles over the decades, but by far that is their most adorable and smallest! Great piece!
At best, I'm second youngest. I know one kid is younger than I.

Click here to see the most productive bottle dump I've dug. I don't do privies, but I do small dumps and find bottles in the woods like this (disastrous thread.... lol) by chance or in hope of finding them. Recently I've struck-out with a total of 0 embossed, intact bottles the last 15 or so trips. Here's my first and best milk-- 1920s Twin City Dairy, Muskegon, Mi, bottle I found while trying to move away from a stalker. It was between an older house and former school (now Police Station) and everything else I could see was plastic, so it's an odd find to see before a tree and atop frozen mud one very early Spring day. I could only find 1 other online, so I'm pleased with it. The Jack's seems cooler, but is less sentimental. This shard is an example of what I usually come across-- only Big Red I've found, but always shards. Nonetheless, this flower was just feet from it and makes journeying in the hot sun worth it.
I would love to find such a small round one! The closest I've come is a squared one.

Do you do any digging of sorts? Lakes or ocean resorts that were used n the past, forests where once resorts stood and vacationers went, older home and wetlands in rural areas-- all tend to be alright to check-out for stuff. Creeks and rivers, around old bridges--downriver. Farm dumps; factories by large tracts of woods have dumps often.
