and other stuff
fun, but I heard someone dug a real whiskey hole with several 80s non cutter bourbons.
NICE layer shot, beautiful color, congradulations!
NICE! Those often come in numbers, but not so often with that exceptional color. I dug no bourbons yesterday, just a funky old EC&M.
I just dug 21 buckets of unwashed previously dug bottles from a barn in Dobbins. I haven't had time to look through them but it looks like I could be the king of clay beers.rs
Sweet color! That defines Lollipop yellow~
Yeah, sweet color. I bet there used to be a lot more yellow JHs around back in the 70s.
I bet during the glory days of Marysville, Stockton, Napa, ect. that yellow Cutters came out by the buckets. I bet OldCutters has dug dozens of Yellow Cutters in Sacramenta. Those were the days, I miss them. I'd love to hear some storys of epic whisky digs from those gravy-boat days.
Not only Sackamenna, but Oakyland and San Frandisco. One pit in West Sackamenna was filled with the first mold and we did not appreciate them one iota. Usually 10-25 bucks, your choice. One was a serious deep green, but it had a shovel chunk in the base. I sold it to Alan Wilson, but these days it would have been easily fixed. I was not so much a Hotaling hound at the time, and the sheer number of them in the pit made me use a damned shovel to thrash them out, something that makes me cringe today. I do still own few "pretty ones", but not even close to those in other collections. Young and dumb, and used to digging pontiled stuff. Bottles weren't so much money in the late 1960s and '70s, it was the "thrill of the hunt" that kept us doing it. That feeling is the same several decades later. If you are trying to get rich by diggin' bottles you are in the wrong business. We do it because it's a passion, not a job.
karl gressel ak oldbumstead feels the same as mike ,the thrill of the hunt,and the passion, i have dug over 30 ft for bottles and only one whiskey most of the time if there is any at all so circle cutters are as fun to find as the rare ones too. im dug a early non a.no.1 olive green minus its top but still would be nice repaired,and super whittled and that was another 30 ft hole with only a few throw back in the hole bottles ,but a few holes i have found over ten varied cutters in the same hole it makes up for all the holes with no bottles. in 09 100 whiskey flasks in one 5ft hole with only three embossed,but one thistledew fifth and a broken green bird cutter,i wonder what the dump trucks took away from the ten feet that they took off before i dug the last 5 feet..
