So yesterday I got bored and decided to dig a hole under the deck on the back of the shed and I found a bottle, a coin, and a button. When I tossed a brick out of the hole it somehow landed directly on top of the button and it vaporized. I would like to know more about the bottle, it Says T.C.W. Co USA 58 on the bottom and looks like something insulin would have come in. The coin is a Look Magazine 25th Anniversary Coin.

The bottle was made by TC Wheaton Glass Company. The 58 could be a mold number or a date code, bottles like that have been used since the 30s at least for vaccines, insulin, sedatives, etc. so it would be pretty much impossible to determine which it is. The coin is cool. And sorry about your button, you'll find another one though.

Yeah, I only dug a tiny little hole and one day the whole deck has to come off and I'll dig it all up.
