I will bring a flask of soup , temperatures dropping rapidly .
A bears grease pot lid and a patent cobalt hybrid codd/hamilton bottle
Will keep you warm..
Too right and digging for them would get you toasty enough .
To be fair I only ever dug 2 bears grease and I've seen hybrids at shows
Up here it's cream pots and ginger beers.
Usually used to get blank lids and milkof magnesia bottles!
I parted company with nearly all of my bottles and have regretted it ever since..

I had a huge break from bottle digging and only recently got stuck into it again . The stuff we dug as youngsters was quality gear but the strange thing about it was we never really bothered to take it home . My old Mum would moan and groan about bringing home rubbish so we never bothered . The fun was finding the gear and I whince looking back at the stuff we just left lying about . Madness .
Got a great tip down here if you are ever in these parts , its huge , well dug but still some cracking finds .

Finding a hammered coin can rescue a poor days detecting,
Like finding a pot lid would rescue a poor days bottle digging,
Then the gold coin equivalent would sometimes pop up, like a coloured pot lid, blue lip cod, a blue coffin or skull shaped poison bottle,
Those were the days at the Oxford college tips.

Right on!
The hunt....
I hope you've still got the coloured lids
::g
A skull poison?! Only ever seen pictures
And
A Coffin poison-ruddy hell hens teeth!
