    Just Bottles & Stuff Tonight

    It's so dry MDing territory is hard to come by right now. My curiosity got the better of me when I drove by a construction site tonight. I made a u-turn, stopped and looked around and found these.

    The bottle on the right says Skilton Foote & Co, Bunker Hill Pickles.

    Nice bottles. Looks like some late 19th century to early 20th. The seams and embossing indicate such, but they are early and nice shape.
    Future goals: Capped bust coin, Flowing hair LC, Classic head LC, VT copper, MA copper, Pistareen, Two-cent pc, SLQ, GW inaugural button, Excelsior button, Civil war token, and a gold ring.
