Default Guest Dig gets me a couple of Turn Of Century medicine bottles

Was invited on a dig in NW Indiana and dug a couple of trash pits. In the split, I got a few corkers and it was nice to see some old friends again.

Nothing at all unusual/rare but more for the shelf.

Love all the heavy embossing, and the monogram & script bottle. Looks like good bottles, and sounds like good times!

Love those local medicines. When I was 15 or so, I had a nice collection but the weight of the glass caused 5 shelves to come crashing down one day. I lost probably 80% or about 50 nice 1880-1900 cork tops and also a few half gallon blob top beers.

That hurts just reading about it!

Somebody I knew long ago had a c1905 amber coke with partial label get destroyed when a shelf failed. I still think about that one.
