In from New Orleans bottle Digger Eddie Cunningham…
“thought your viewers might like to see what great finds are being found in New Orleans these days! Along with many French wine bottles found in a privey, a great Bitters bottle was discovered at a depth of four feet! That is a STEINFELD’S/FRENCH COGNAC/BITTERS-FIRST PRIZE/PARIS /EXHIBITION/(PROFILE OF A MAN AND TWO COATS OF ARMS) 1867” (S-186). The bottle is amber in color and is damage free, that is in dug condition. In less than 24 hours after being unearthed, the bottle sold for an undisclosed amount leaving my friend Joe very happy”!
[PRG] Eddie…big news indeed as the Steinfeld’s is undoubtedly a great find. It is actually one of my favorite bitters so this is exciting. Thanks for sharing!
