Recently, while in the woods cleaning up and looking for composted leaves i ran into an old Pepsi Bottle i dated it back to 1963 making it 45 years old. This peaked my interest.
I'm really starting to get into it, i was out at my girlfriends house in her woods at the site of a old house where i found a bottle that read Scott's Emulsion and had an embossed man carrying a huge cod over his should and on the bottom it said 'Cod Liver Oil' The company was started in 1876 and grew rapidly, i dated the bottle back to the 1920's which was when the first screw caps came about and it has two separate threads. I'll up load a picture later.
While in her woods i also found a flask like bottle that said "Federal law prohibits the resale or reuse of this bottle" Thinking originally that it was poison i researched it. It turns out that these were old Alcohol bottles used after the prohibition. they date from 1932-1964 ( i haven't dated my bottle specifically.) Federal law ordered all the bottles to be destroyed after use and if caught with them in your possession you could serve 2 years in jail and/or 1000 in fines. Check out this link. Link
In short i have now found a new and exciting hobby.
