I have an interest in searching for / collecting bottles from the 1970's on down to the late 1800's Preferences are sodas, beers, and liquors but will keep anything I have an interest in searching for / collecting bottles from the 1970's on down to the late 1800's Preferences are sodas, beers, and liquors but will keep anything that is interesting looking. Favorite brands to collect are Rolling Rock and Old Overholt because they are local to me. And I am always looking for any items made by Anchor Hocking Plant #5. I also will eventually post photos of items in my collection like railroad memorabilia. (Read more)

  1. iggy I look forward to seeing them.
  2. iggy I look forward to seeing them.
  3. motelmark that was really nice of you to give it back to him. I hope you can find another one someday but chances are slim. I've never seen any more outdoors or even online.
  4. Thanks iggy. I don't come across too many of these for some reason.
  5. iggy, yes indeed!
  6. buckethead thank you. At the time I bought this I had no idea it was so rare. And did you make your screenname from the guitarist of the same name?
  7. As a bottle hunter / collector myself, I estimate the glass here to be from the 1930's to 1950's. I would suggest to keep looking. Usually when you broken clues such as these, there are much better th...
  8. I think I have that Diet Pepsi bottle. These are really hard to clean without ruining the ACL on them.
  9. Thank you Iggy. I believe this one was kept in a house its entire life before I got it.
  10. Very nice. I just recently got a War in the Pacific quarter in change too. But it's the "P" version.
  11. racer4four, thank you. I've never seen any other bottle like it online anywhere.
  12. bottle-bud I've done some searching. I no longer think this was a Glenshaw bottle. It doesn't have a G in a box logo and it doesn't have a solo G either. I believe the "GC" on the lip stands for anoth...
  13. That is a beautiful bottle. Be very proud of that! The 857 probably is a model number. But then I see a single number 8 below that which could stand for 1928.
  14. Now that's a something I don't have yet. A motor oil bottle. Looks like it was made by Owens-Illinois in 1934.
  15. Great pieces of history to have. I love things like this.
  16. Iggy, thank you. The funny thing is, the bottle was just laying on a hillside all out in the open by itself. As if I was meant to find it.
  17. Watchsearcher, thanks I do love that texture! And was functional making the bottle easier to grip. Gillian, thanks for the lead on the bottle maker. However I thought that Liberty Glass used either a...
  18. Thank you iggy. I wish it was the dates you mentioned. The older a bottle is, the better! However the H over A logo did not begin until about 1923. Source- https://www.glassbottlemarks.com/hazel-atl...
  19. iggy, for some reason they seem pretty rare. This is the only one I've ever found in the woods.
  20. Looks like it is in perfect condition. A fine piece of history there!
  21. bottle-bud it is already posted on here and shows you previously loved it. :)
  22. Nice variety. I think I see an older Nehi in there.
  23. racer4four, Thanks I am very proud to own it, and also the green version too.
  24. Interesting. I've heard of this type of glass before but don't have any.
  25. That is a cool bottle and really has some character!
  26. RacAtac, thanks for your information. I didn't know about the use of other machines besides Owens-types. The bottle came from an area that had bottles from 1890's to 1920's so that still fits into the...
  27. You pick some great backdrops for your bottles.
  28. That is a really nice lamp! I looked on that auction site that I'm not sure I can mention. And there's red Handlan lanterns on there from multiple railroads. It really could be from any railroad. Whic...
  29. I'm Generation X. I came too late for this but it is well captured moment from that era!
  30. Some of those old remedies may have worked. But it wasn't regulated very well. Nice collection!
  31. I love seeing your examples of British bottling history.
  32. Very nice. That was before the merger with Anchor!
  33. Silica slag I think you meant. I'm not sure. I'd have to research it more. I don't know what silica slag looks like. Dunbar also had iron furnaces though.
  34. Watchsearcher, it might have been given empty just as a memento? I'm not really sure. But maybe later on some of them put some "good stuff" into it. Drinking age was 18 back then!
  35. Nice finds. Looks like one of them was next to some rusty item. Sadly there is no way to get that off. Or the label will go with it.
  36. Nice collection! I have a ways to go before I have that many.
  37. Great idea! I have learned that powerful toilet cleaners such as The Works are very good to get all the residue off the insulators.
  38. That would be a great bottle to own!
  39. Back in the day, people used any item for storage and never realized it would have any collectible value later!
  40. Thanks Iggy, you must know the Yough River very well!
  41. Actually he does look like both the Monopoly guy and Mr. Peanut. I knew I saw him somewhere before. I had no idea about the copyright info regarding Mr. Peanut. I love this site. I can always find out...
  42. Is talking about value forbidden here so that their partner that they link to can make more on appraisals? If so that's pretty ridiculous.
  43. Nice, I need to get me some of those 7up's. I don't have any that old.
  44. Thanks Sean68! It's one of the best in my collection.
  45. Thank you Sunnero. I put a 300 Lumen LED camera light behind it. Small enough that it doesn't show up beyond the bottle.
  46. I like that second one a lot, with the embossing.
  47. Thank you Iggy. I'm very proud of this one. I've seen a handful of others in the woods and they were always broke!
  48. Thank you Iggy. Charles L. Grigg did some great things in the soda industry! These bottles are hard to find. Especially in the woods in this condition, like I did with this one.
  49. I'm not worthy lol. That is quite a collection. And to think it's only one brand!
  50. Thanks, I've heard there's many different versions from 7UP out there.
  51. See more
