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.

Cool bottles!

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.:no:

I wonder if the shelves were screwed into the wall stud? Those anchor things they make for drywall are worthless. We had one of those collapse but it was above the washer/dryer and the laundry stuff wasn't hurt.
