3/12/12 Report - Bottles, Clumps & Regatta

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of

Common Old Fort Pierce Bottle Found on the Treasure Coast.

This bottle is embossed "Coca Cola Bottling Company." It is from the 20s or 30s and from Fort Pierce, as you can see from the bottom of the bottle. This type of bottle is sometimes referred to as a Deco bottle.

This bottle did not contain Coca Cola. It was used for some flavored beverage such as orange, lemon lime or grape.

These bottles are common from Fort Pierce(I've found a few) and many other Coca Cola Bottling companies around the country.

The Fort Pierce bottling company also bottled Soda Water. I especially like the Coca Cola soda water bottles and have found a few.

Both the Coca Cola flavor bottles and soda water bottles are common finds along the Treasure Coast.

The Sedwick Coins auction is over. I was looking at some of the items and the prices realized. It seems that a lot of people like artifacts. I do. The artifacts in the auction were routinely selling above auction estimates. On the other hand it seemed to me that Pillar Dollars were doing not so well.

Markets fluctuate, but if you keep studying, you can get a good idea of what different items might be worth.

The Stuart Sailfish Regatta will be held on the Indian River Lagoon near the Hutchinson Island Marriott on April 14 and 15.

Clump Found In Shell Pile by Joan T.

I've been talking about checking out the shell piles. I've also told you to check out clumps. You never know what might be in a clump.

Thanks for the photo Joan.

The wind was out of the northeast this morning. I think it is more from the east now.

Seas will be slowly building through Thursday and Friday, reaching a peak of about 5 or 6 feet on Saturday.

I'm not expecting any significant change in beach conditions.

Happy hunting,
