Not yet, still soaking. It's in really bad shape but still whole.

A couple of great finds, that's for sure! Love the look of that Capitol City Brewing bottle, and hopefully the hutch cleans up nice - looks like the embossing on that one might actually be pretty strong if all the gunk gets out of there!

Sadly this hutch is a victim of the river. It's gonna have to be a window display.

A. R. stands for Anthony Reed. Looks like hutchbook.com calls it Scarce. Bummer not in better shape. Leon.

When I lived in Fort Wayne, I was snorkeling in a lake near there and found a bunch of Walter Raupfer beer bottles and happened to meet an old lady online whose Father had owned the business and had the last name on the bottle. She wanted to purchase all she could find so that each grandchild could have a bottle with their great Grandfathers's name on it. She even wanted the one broken off at the neck, which I sent her for free. I think I sent her 7, one of which was clear. The rest were brown. Good Memories. Nice finds.

Yes i have talked to her, alot of the spots I go to snorkle or river search are close to Columbia city so every trip I usually find a couple. She has two of my finds, a aqua crown and a amber crown walter.
