A scientist from Britain tossed several bottles into the North Sea in 1906…and now 110 years later one of the bottles has resurfaced in Germany!
A woman on vacation came across the bottle and opened it to see what was inside! There was a postcard stating that the finder write the date when they found the bottle and send it back to The Marine Biological Association (MBA). Imagine the surprise on the peoples faces at the MBA when they opened the letter!
As a reward for sending back the postcard, the original scientist promised one shilling…which are no longer in use in England. So the MBA found one on Ebay and sent it to the finder with a letter saying thanks!
Guinness World Records confirmed that it was the oldest message in a bottle to be found.
