Hi, I just joined up after spending the afternoon rummaging through a bottle collection that was gifted to me from a neighbor. I'm just guessing here, but there's probably over 100 bottles in the collection, plus about another 100 I've collected over the years. Most all of the gifted bottles are as found condition, with dirt in, or on them. 1/2 pint whiskey, full pint whiskey, and a few 4/5 whiskey, all cork stoppers, no twist offs. Soda-pop bottles, including Coca-Cola, 7-UP, Roxie, Donnely, Smith, and a few others. Tiny to medium size medicine bottles, McCormick spice bottles, and one I found very interesting, it's almost flat, like deflated. Anyway, I look forward to posting some pictures later and getting to know my new bottles.

Okay, here's most of what I was given from the old lady up the road. I've sorted them out and found some interesting ones, I'll post next, (along with my old collection).

Three interesting pop bottles, from the left, Roxie, (guessing it's a pop bottle) Imbesi Bottle Works-817-19 Carpenter st. Phila, PA. A 60's-70's 7-UP bottle, and an old Coke bottle, Coka-Cola Bottling Works HBG with an arrow and marked "Property Of".

Liquid Stove Polish-Manufactured By J.L. Prescott Co.-New York still has some polish in it.
This little fellow is a mystery to me, no marks at all, about 5" high and very slim, couldn't have held more than an oz. Very heavy glass and a wide mouth for it's size.
