    23 feet underground?? Are you serious? How did they get down there?
    That's incredible... Its Japanese anyway, from about when the bottles are from, turn of the century

    It is a park now. Found out in 1920 it was a landfield. Then made into a park. We put water drains and water line in and found bottles and this. I have a 1896 coke bottle. I had the gold on it tested and found it to be 24 kt gold but cant find markings.

    Yeah its 24kt gold but all gilding is, that aspect isn't particularly special. Its a nice little piece, too bad you don't have the other, that kinda ruins it... I guess its a hatpin holder now

    True. But i love finding pieces like this. It shows all the beauty and colors in something over 100 years. But hay i might find the other and more......still i would like to find the history on it.
