Thread: I'll drink to that.

  1. #1

    I'll drink to that.

    Checked behind a pile of rocks and found this:



    Was surprised it was all in one piece. If it was right-side-up, water would have gotten into and busted it when it froze.





    I think it's a mid 1800's stoneware beer bottle ??

    That was one lucky find! The planets definitely aligned to keep it intact all these years. Does it have any writing or markings on it?

    That's amazing it's all in 1 piece! Did you detect under it to see if the coins spilled out?
