found an interesting shard down by the river the other day , for simcoe dry ginger ale ( features the map portion of acl ) , is a local ginger ale from Orillia Ontario from the 50's - 60's

have this bottle already , it was also found locally , parents found it in a heavily wooded area on our own property seemed to be only 1 there would of been about 10 years ago

I also found a damaged one swimming a couple years ago but never found any in good condition

checked the lakefront lot again , more liquor bottles and beer bottles ( green and amber stubby ) , yet to find a single soda bottle on it .

some soda/metal cans - 7up , coca cola , libby's tomato

a couple golf balls , glass jar , broken cup , some metal items

found an area which appears to have been an old parking area/roadway , didn't realise you could drive in there but didn't have time to metal detect it

As a bottle and can digger from 40 yrs ago. ( they were in better shape then!). I didn’t think about that….) at what point do you leave them, and are you going to work magic with these? I’m liking the grape one! Because if u mess with these I have some cans u might want? I think they are far gone because 40 yrs ago, I guess we were spoiled!but any of these you can have- for postage only. As u can see, some are pretty shot out, is what I would grade them as. And it’s true what they say- rust never sleeps…. Even in the garage in a box for 40 years!

I bring a lot of cans " home " cause I find it too hard in the wild to determine which ones might clean up or not , sometimes there so rusted you can't even tell which brand they are

so I bring a lot home then sort thru them , I don't keep every can I bring home obviously , the damaged ones I toss out and keep the better ones in garage , not sure how many are there now but its growing and a large assortment mostly soda cans with the odd Canadian beer

I poked thru the lakeside lot again , mainly to metal detect the area which appeared to be some sort of road or parking area but didn't find much

couple beer bottles , wine bottle , some damaged cans - RC cola , coke , diet caffeine free coke , more golf balls , the odd metal item but no coins or items of interest

a libby's real fruit bottle wasn't sure how old it was or if it was old but is an expiry date on it of " 24 June 98 " and appears to be a product long since discontinued

You should message Leon (hemihampton on here) about those, he uses acid to clean the rust off the cans and since you can already see the paint on those cone tops they would probably clean up quite well.

Thanks for the shout out Canadian Bottles, I've already talked to them about those a Week ago. THANKS, LEON.


P.S. I'm sure the other Vultures lurking in here will contact them, they know who they are.
