I really love the squat crown on the right!



I really love the blob on the right! Looks mint, and has really cool embossing!



The one with the ship is really awesome!



What's up with the one on the right? Irradiated? Sick? I can't even tell...

All the C A List bottles I've seen are clear, or were at one point. The one on the right is SCA and yes, it's sick.
The sailboat slug is from a local purchase, the Sacco Co with the funky 4 was off the bay.. and the little John Heldt crown was dug up with about a dozen of its fellows on one dig day, they're like little hand grenades, more glass than space for contents.. [;)]

Very nice collection Chuck,I also like the Hirschfelds variants.I will comb through my attic boxes in the spring, I know I have a Long Branch blob somewhere for you. Quick question , How tall is the quart on the left it looks to be about 40 mini venetian blinds tall or three ogee coves and a two half round finishers tall? Just curious?[;)]

I was thinking the same thing but I wasnt quite sure.Thanks for the precise measurements.Honestly I still think it may be .18 MVBs or 3 OGEE coves tall can you confirm.

One could also argue that infact it could very well be 2 dentals and one chair rail tall by a case and cove wide,yes?

I won't argue with that, but I've seen some DCM/CR/BB's in Manalapan that make this look like a salesman's sample of a baby doll feeder..
