Hey everyone...
My wife (Pam) is trying to teach me how to use the camera and upload photos, so I thought I would start with the bottle that got me absolutely hooked on bottle diving.

This Stoddard Double Eagle half pint was found in Kittery, Maine just outside of the oldest US Naval shipyard in the US, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Kittery, Maine.
I found it while working on a boat mooring in the local area. I have regular photos of what the bottle looked like before (covered with pink coraline algae) and this is what it looked like after it was cleaned up with muriatic acid and then it was tumbled by a Pro.

This bottle is absolutely one of mymost exciting finds and it is a prized possession! It was found in salt water, at 23 feet on the border between Maine and New Hampshire. Next time, I'll post a phot of the Stoddard Cornucopia/Urn one pint that was found about 300 feet away!

Thanks for looking,
Wayne[:)]
