    Made it out again Sunday and dug a lot of holes in the blazing sunshine and heat. Unfortunately a lot of them were oyster pits or super old pits with broken stuff in them. Nonetheless, brought home...

    Love the script jugs! I collect New Hampshire jugs but there were only 3 or so merchants in New Hampshire that used them.

    Those are cool! There are several different versions as this medicine was sold for a long time...I've dug probably 6-8 different versions over the years including some super early ones.

    Yeah...I get to my dig site just before daylight and dig until about midday. Usually go through nearly two gallons of water.

    Looks like blacking or shoe polish to me. 1920's, maybe 1910's.

    That's a purty one! I'd say it is about 5 years or so newer than that (1885ish) based on the tooled lip.

    I think it is old...likely from a dresser set or something like that and probably Victorian. Would have had a ground stopper. They are pretty but there doesn't seem to be much market for them.

    I sell them for $1 each at the bottle shows...and definitely don't manage to sell them all. Depending on my mood a lot of them just go back in the hole.

    In my experience, these post-date the Civil war by about 5-10 years. I usually find them in 1870's-1910's context, and they don't seem to have changed much in those 40 years except the later ones...

    I wouldn't coat them. I am a pretty avid collector of crates and I hate to see a clear coat on them. Just blow them off and wipe them down (in that order).

    The bottles are 1840's-1860's era...maybe slightly earlier but definitely not 1789 era. However, the rum could be that old and just rebottled.
