We bought a camp in the Adirondacks last year. Couldn’t wait for snow melt Thai year to start exploring. Maybe not anything valuable monetarily speaking but I am psyched at today’s finds. Did some research on them. Not sure about the clear one with double handles or the three smaller ones. Thoughts?

I don't know much about the Bottles. But let me know if you find any old rusty dented Beer Cans, I collect those. LEON.

That strap-sided flask is a nice find, it's much older than the other ones there. I'd be going back to wherever you found that one, there could be some more good ones there!

mostly typical household dump stuff but might be other bottles there , most collectors dig dumps from this era hoping to find local soda's or milk jugs

That amber strapside is definitely 1800s. The rest of the bottles seem to date 1920s-1940s. Definitely some good milk, soda, can and late throw potential.

If you haven't done so already, research the property records on your camp. If it was occupied prior to 1910, especially if active as a resort, then there are likely some real goodies on the property somewhere. As already noted by others, that amber strap-sided flask is a good indication, though it might be what we call a "late throw." That means it was discarded long after it was manufactured, which is common with liquor flasks that might well have been refilled and carried for years after the original contents were consumed.

Raking through the leaves and duff with a potato rake is a good way to test a few spots on your place. Ravines, gullies and marshy hollows, property corners and near the base of stumps and large trees are all good prospects.

Have fun!
