I found a bottle recently in shallow ground so I got very lucky not having to do much digging. I thought it had a common enough makers mark but it seems not really. This is just the way bottle collecting goes just when you think You have it figured out a curve ball knocks you back down into the empty pit again. Who mfg glass using a simple star on the base with a number along the edge directly below the star? Any leads would be helpful because a star is not as common a glass mfg icon as I thought it was. does the hunt ever really end??
