This weekend i finaly went out to the local river that runs through my town to walk around and see what i could find. Ive always had a hunch there could be some stuff due to the history of the town and the old buildings that run along the river. Heres what i pulled out. First i found the little blue ink with all the preasure cracks in it which looks kind of cool, then i found the olive green bottle which i think is a beer,(too bad about the lip chip), and then as i was getting tired and praying to the bottle gods to let me find something good with no damage..i found the hoods sasparilla.lol not the rarest bottles but i was super excited to be finding some old stuff.i also came across what i call a minefield of 1940's canadian hobbleskirt cokes that i have to go back for. I was wondering if anyone had an age range of the green bottle or if anyone has seen that makers mark before? Thanks for any help!

I like the look of that ink too! The beer probably dates to around 1890-1920s. Shame the Cokes aren't a bit older. I generally leave the 40s ones behind, once you've seen one you've seen them all really.
