That's a hell of a way to start a collection. And to think, my collection started with a hobbleskirt Coke!

No doubt I was very fortunate to uncover it. I've never seen another in 20 years of digging and hunting.

Definitely a quality first find. Find anymore bottles with it?
I can't recall with certainty, but I think it was an India Wharf Brewing Co. Since then I've uncovered nearly 50 blob beers from that location. Some are mint, others are battle worn but I still keep them. Here's a pic of my display collection, but there are over a dozen or more in storage (I'd estimate 20). Mostly doubles or partially damaged. There's 33 blob beers in this pic and I'm proud to say I found every one of them.

Here is my treasured bottle. It was my first bottle find (1999) and I've been on a hunting and digging frenzy ever since. Not bad for the first "keeper" bottle I ever found. A sought after, pictorial Schaefer blob top.
My collection started with a Carrico bottle from Portugal It has embossed LABOR OMNIA VINCI. I followed this rule 12 years ago.
By the way Neat one
