I went back to the standard dump today and in about 6 hours of work, I came up with close to 60 bottles!
Mostly meds, but some real keepers include:

A very well used Warners Safe Cure

A completely unknown local pharmacy. I was really blown away by this. I had no idea this pharmacy and druggist existed.

This Detroit herbicide

A busted up Malt Whiskey (I just brought it back for photograph and research purposes.)
Not to mention a ton of other great finds like a straight side Coke and another unknown bottler from Burlington NC.
I’ll make another post once I’ve cleaned the rest up and after my finger heals from getting sliced open by a broken slugplate crown Pepsi from Liberty, NC

Great dig, and good save on the safe cure bottle! Also always a welcome suprise to find a previously unknown bottle like that Freeman med! Sometimes people come out of the woodwork with information pertaining to these unknown companies as during their research on their own family histories they discover their ancestors owned these small businesses. I once found a bottle and someone randomly came out and said it was from a company their great grandfather ran for a short time nearly 90 years ago, and that this was the only example of their bottle they had ever seen.

That’s a great story! I’m hoping someone in Burlington can come forward with information about this company.
Maybe it’s time for a field trip to the library next weekend!

This one cleaned up real nice. I’m very satisfied with how this bottle came out. It managed to chip in the process, but I was able to repair the chip well with some Lucite Glass glue

Nice amber med with color change

Wish it wasn’t so busted, but a rarely seen JJ May and Son Bottlers from Burlington NC

REALLY wish this wasn’t flashed, but oh well. A JM Coble and Co Straight Side Coca-Cola from Burlington NC!
Fun fact about JM: He produced the only currently recorded Hutchinson Bottles for this town. Interesting he partnered with Coca-Cola later!

Is that embossed druggist bottle ABM? It almost looks like it is in the photos, if it is then that's VERY unusual, I've only ever heard of a small handful of ABM embossed druggists.
