An ok day diving the Cooper

Today, I hit the Cooper River on the incoming tide, and boy was is rippin! The first dive we were in about 40 feet of water with about 1 foot of visability. It was so good because the current was so fearsome. Anyway, most of the stuff I found was beat to fragments, but I did come up with a complete, although worn, 2 5/8" meg. It has some decent coloration to it, but the real treasure from this dive was an old Milk bottle. I had only seen these in pictures before yesterday, and now I have one! It has a cool pinkish tint to it. Across the bottom, it says "Registered Sealed" on one side, and "One Quart Liquid" on the other. On the base, it says "Douglas", "B", "17", and "53" (for 1953). I don't know if it's worth anything, it just looks really cool!
