After finding 7 or 8 nice Cobalt Blue Hutches in 1 hole about 4 or 5 years ago was not sure If I could top that. BUT, This hole may of done it. First we dug 1 privy & then a 2nd we tunneled into it next to it. But Yesterday we broke through a wood wall on far side of 2nd privy & to our surprise was more bottles on the other side of wood wall. Meaning a 3rd privy next to the 2nd. Seems they used the same wall for both privy's. But now with a 5 foot overhang of dirt above you & being 6 to 7 feet down, I tell the other diggers we better start a new hole on top for safety reasons. So we start digging. But this 3rd hole has tons of roots big & small & clay restricting our hole size. The other digger is short & small so he don't mind the small opening. We get 4-5 feet down & start hitting glass shards but nothing special. After a while I get in, then he gets back in but just some common stuff coming out of hole. Then I hear him start screaming in the hole OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. I jump up off my Lazy Boy Reclining Couch (one of 3 or 4 left behind by trash dumpers in this god forsaken desolate gang & crack infested wasteland of a ghost town) to see what all the excitement is. His hand comes out of the hole & in it is a Beautiful site. One I never seen before & never thought we would ever dig. The Super Rare elusive AMBER John Koch Michigan Bottling Works Detroit Michigan Hutch. As far as I know Amber Hutches are rare from any state. Much rarer then the Cobalt Blue hutches. This 1st pic is Eric coming out of 1st hole after digging a Cobalt Blue hutch from 2nd hole. LEON.
