the amber orange crush cleaned up fairly well , missing some front acl but back mostly there , its the 7 oz version


also found a brown's acl bottle , not a swim find , found it the other day along a road where the ditch had been dug out for construction ( only old bottle i found , rest modern beer or liquor ) , you can see on the right a black line from where equipment scraped it but didn't break the bottle

Hey RCO, that bottle of yours looks similar to this one; is the base of your bottle similar to this base? Have you tried cleaning yours with a green scrubbie & some 'Barkeepers Friend?' It should shine up real nice.

Nice finds! What state? What's the bottom like where you find bottles and what methods do you use?
