Sofar, I have been on two hunts with Charles Bibb and Rick
Bailey from Mississippi. My first hunt was quite an experience. I
learned that picking glass in the wild can be a blast, but being with fellow
collectors is even better. It was fun to get to pick my first CREB CD
145. It is amazing to find glass that is over 100 years old!
My second hunt was even better. Charles was on the hunt for threadless,
while Rick and I took off. We found old and newer glass. I even
saw the "tearjerker".....a CD 145 CREB in Yellow Green.....with the skirt
shot off......on a pole in deep water. But we did come away with some
goodies like some green CREBs and a base-embossed American beehive in bright
blue that was damaged. I do plan to go back to Mississippi as well as
Texas. I hope you like these pictures taken by me and Charles.
