Well this was a nice find in Port Townsend, a Hutchinson-style bottle with the stopper still inside. It says "Cascade Soda Works" and "J.M.", a soda company in Bellingham around the turn of the century. Somewhat rare bottle? Can't find many other images of one.

Yes!!! Nice finds. Love the Rainier bottle. And "Hale's Honey of Horehound and Tar"?? Ha, fantastic. Talk about snake oil.

Ah, um, if you were willing to reveal the location, maybe PM me? No worries either way... :burntchef:

I have a small collection of old Coke bottles. My favorite is a 1923 Christmas bottle. The U.S. Patent offices happened to be opened that day, so Coca-Cola had a limited run of Christmas bottles made.

- T & S Port Townsend Hutchinson soda bottle. Finally, something from Port Townsend! It's had a rough life, a bit chipped. I can't find anything on the web about this company or even see another similar bottle. Next stop maybe the Historical Society...

Cool find! Pretty tough one! Post WT like 1890 but more desirable than the TS with the slug plate This one is id’d as wa0038 on Hutchbook.com which is Ron Fowler’s site There’s one on display in the basement of the PT antique mall that was found when they dug the basement for the mall back in the early 1990s probably about $200 in value based on condition

That WT is a well known bottle and quite collectible. It’s on my list of fantasy finds someday. If I found that bottle it probably spit out my regulator and rocket to the surface screening!!!

60 South finds all the goodies in PT .. nice
I just wanted to say this thread has grown over the years and is now 11 pages !!!
Unfortunately the bottle expert that I found and agreed to help and identify bottles is long gone... So if you post a bottle and need help from this thread, it may not be possible...
Try to use the internet , or ebay , for identification...
