Default house produces bottles and more

My neighbor/complicated family member recently passed away a couple weeks ago. Her and her mom were really into garage sailing and canning food. Now that she's passed the house is full of junk no one wants, and they gave me permission to take whatever I want as long as it isn't farm equiptment (the house is on an old farm and they use the basement to store stuff). Because of this I was able to come up with many bottles dating from 1920's to the 1960's. And also a vintage blast cap tin and a hammer end. I also got 5 milks of magnesias. All but one with the caps. And 6 milk bottles. One with embossing.

Clad: $4.86, Wheats: 7, Silver: 1, Gold: 0, Oldest Coin: 1929 Penny, Oldest Item: Peters 12 Gauge HV Headstamp (1897-1907)

Man! Great finds! No telling what else is in there!


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.

Very nice finds. Love those blue cobalt glass. We had a company in Baltimore which specialized in blue cobalt glass, Maryland glass. They made the bottles for Bromo Seltzer and others. Their mark is "M" in a circle. Closed down years ago.

Explorer SE Pro, Garrett Pro-pointer. Best finds - 1903 Barber half, 1877 and 1878 seated qtrs., 1920, 1946 WL halves, 1925, 1926 SLQs, 1800 large cent, 1809 half cent.
