As a complete newbie, my comments should be taken with a pillar of salt. That being said:

Try looking down - topographically, where refuse might have tumbled towards water or large/very old trees.

If you have a metal detector, remember that beeps may indicate other goodies.

Widen your search on yours days off , widen your search as much as your car can handle - fieldtrips can be so much fun when in pursuit of a dream.

If you have a local buddy, engage them in your interest. Additional input is valuable even if from the most unlikely sources.

Stay faithful to this site, for my short-term impression is that there is much wisdom to be gained here.

Best luck and regards,
Katie

Hi all,
I have a tiny collection so far and none of it is very rare but wanted to share it and maybe get some info on some of my bottles. I couldn't find anything on some of them.
Here it is. Please, don't laugh.[&o]

I would LOVE to know the story behind that 1938 nazi bottle. Did you pick it up randomly at a sale, or do you know any background to it? I have no idea what it was used for or how rare it is but it may be just as valuable as that pontied demijohn, perhaps moreso to collectors of relics from that enigmatic regime. The slogan at the bottom was their national anthem, I believe, so it must be a pretty rare piece of early propaganda, or something of the like. Is it an all-metal bottle?

I really like that thing, lol. Nice stuff, seems like you know what to look out for.

Great German pill bottle and the demi is good too. You have a pretty nice collection going and it will only get better with time.
