That is very creative that you are able to salvage bottles like that and make them usable. I'll let you know if I find anymore suitable ones.


I personally cannot do it, I know how to find someone who does.

Here's an example of an SS coke glass.

I brought home bottles in worse condition than most of you are showing here. The Nehi soda and Richard Mudnut NY look well.
I want to know everything about the FAD. I think I found a fragment of one like that.

That's cool. I know some bring them home. Just not something I am interested in doing. Usually I only have enough pack space to carry out the good bottles, Then at home I don't have a lot of space left either.

I have been going in the woods about once a week. That is all the weather allows right now. I brought home a few things but nothing amazing. Just wanted to add this broken Schaller's bottle for documentation purposes. It is from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have read that the brewery existed from 1896 to 1919 and then 1933 to 1941.

I do the same. This is documentation and is very to learn and more about bottles. Al

The space is a big problem for old or lucky collectors. I put them in boxes and choose some for display.

Yes, American Brewing co Delray Michigan. Delray is kinda a old obscure ghost town from 1800's.. Pictured below is the 12 oz. version of this bottle. very rare as a 12 oz. only a couple known to exist in 12 oz. The broken one pictured above is a bigger Quart size Bottle. Not known to exist or even seen in a Quart before, until I dug this broken one. LEON.
