I guess I kind of cheat to be putting these in bottle diggers section because I certainly do not dig for mine. I search on the ground especially around farms country stores or old dump sites. My best luck is around small streams in these areas or in cities and I also crawl around under old houses to see what the original builders left.

This is an old salt shaker from under my house maker mark McK

Nice bottles! You dont find to much vaseline glass out there. The Kola Mist is pretty sweet also.

it's at an old dam/mill site, i want to dive on the deep side of dam. all the buildings are gone but extensive foundations, there was a modern commuinty pool there are one point but has trees growing through it now. the mill building only has a basement left so deer and what not regularly fall down there and get trapped. too much trash/sheet metal to find much but alot of older glass is obvious in the rocks on lower side of dam

Nice Bottles. I'm told there is a bottle dump in the woods by the homestead where my shop is. Have to get someone to show me where.
