Some nice finds, especially the Koppitz Quart Blob Beer. I think that Ketchup in last pic is from Detroit, Don't think I ever dug one of those with Williams name. Ketchups are usually found as slicks. LEON.

Thanks Leon. I forgot to mention that I dug the Koppitz and I believe the Kling as well from a hole you were working on. You have a natural magnet for finding good stuff . And thank you for letting me keep these finds; I don't look at them for their monetary value but rather their collectability and the memories associated with digging and finding old stuff:D


Here is some info I found on the Williams Bros Co:
