I agree that this is an epic find. You should have fun over the years creating stories of how it ended up in you possession. I had a similar find years ago, not as old and certainly not as rare. For my own reasons it was special. I was diving the old "crab pier" at Mukilteo. During the Cold War it was an Air Force pier connected to Paine Field, but during WWII it was a Navy ammo pier. I saw a porcelain handle sticking out of the mud. It was connected to a coffee mug, the type used on the mess decks of navy ships. It said "USN 1943" on the bottom. That was when my dad was in the navy! I cleaned it up and it became my favorite coffee cup. Then, an old navy shipmate of mine was visiting and he said, "Curt, if you ever find another one of those, can I have it?" I knew I was never going to find another one, so I gave him mine. While I never found another vintage cup, a young friend of mine gave me a new one that he bought from a navy supplier. I photographed it in front of my dad's internment flag.

Treasure your find, Curt :rawlings:

Found a full bottle of corona this summer at the bottom of lake washington while diving the corsair. Not sure of vintage. Had to pour it into a glass to drink it because of some muck near the mouth of the bottle under the cap.

Nice going Glen! I've seen lots of pieces but intact ones are few and far.

Was dithering on whether to dive today, it being rainy and mucky out. Glad I went!

Found a German (?) stoneware mineral water jug. 1880's? The first one I've seen come out of the bay here. Wow!
