I finally got around to doing some research on this bottle, or what’s left of it. I believe the bottle was made for Dr. A. Kendall of New Orleans. You can read what I found here. Has anyone seen a whole one?
Hellacious!

Found these 2 Cobalt Blue Hutchinson bottles. Looks like maybe a digger dug up the dump 10 years earlier & left these broken rejects discarded on top? I never did dig that dump. Hopeing to dig some of these whole on a return trip? LEON.

I don't have pics of it but on one of my first digs I found a pocket of at least 12 busted SS cokes from my area. Not a serious prize to some, but those would have made some sweet first bottles.

Re: RE: Your Best Heartbreaker

2 stories, both from the 70s.
My dad and I explored a ghost town, an old logging town that was pretty significant in the late 1800s. We found the town dump. A road had been graded through it. Hundreds of broken mineral waters had been smashed in the process. I've always wanted to go back - maybe this spring I'll do it.
We went to some guy's house in rural Baltimore county; he was going to sell us some bottles or something, I can't remember. His driveway had a bunch of broken historical flasks along it. Pretty size able pieces, too - not just shards. Wish I would have kept them, but I was just a wee lad at the time.

This thread has got me motivated to do some serious digging this season!

Re: RE: Your Best Heartbreaker

My biggest heart breaker is a Christian Ruch beer bottle from Canal Fulton Ohio. I used to live in Canal Fulton and had done a bunch of research on the town but had never been able to locate a single bottle embossed with the town name on it. I had spent YEARS trying to track one down. Right before we moved I was digging a privy and found a busted up beer bottle from the Ruch brewery in Canal Fulton. I kept every piece I could find and glued it back together. I have about 85% of the bottle.
