Some Heavy Hitters for Sale Over at Oregon Trail Antique Bottles
If you are not visiting the Oregon Trail Antique Bottle Site you are missing some fantastic pieces of western glass available to anyone that wants to buy or make an offer on the bottles available for sale.
Here are just a few of the bottles that have been available:
Wow! when was the last time you had a chance to acquire an Angeli flask?
You might need some (or maybe all ) of what's in the picture below to swing a deal for the Angeli
The Sierra County Gold Collection with our late Sheriff Albert "Turk" Johnson in the background
and yes, Sierra County still owns this collection!


  1. That is one pile of nuggets. Are they all actually from sierra county? Im sure an Angeli flask is worth more than its weight in gold.

    1. Yes, all the nuggets came from the Ruby Mine right above Downieville.

  2. You can keep the flask, I will take the gold.

  3. Last Angeli flask was auctioned at PGA in 2002 for $12,000.00 simoleans

  4. You can buy gold any day of the week, 365 days a year 24/7. You can even find it somewhat regularly coming the beach with a detector. But how frequently is there a chance to buy a mint Angeli flask? Maybe once in a decade if you're in the right place at the perfect time with enough coin...Or to dig one?? Probably never, or once in a lifetime if you are a highly dedicated digger & LUCKY!

  5. A friend found and Angeli in an antique shop some years ago sold in Jeff`s auction I believe for 9500 he paid 25 bucks for the Angeli and a good soda some guys have all the luck not me Bill C.
