I just found one in Townsville with 1761 the glass stopper was with it as well.
I found one under the center my low set house whilst restumping, it had to have been put there during the building of the house, and it is over 100 years old. It has 1908 on the bottom, I guess now from the other questions relating to the four digits its not the year of manufacture. So do you know what it indicates.
I have found a bottle at a north sea coast in Germany.
There is 1712 written at the bottom I think.
what does it mean. Is this the year of making the bottle?
We have one found at Worser bay school down the bank and it has a x on the bottom
