    Dug several unusual "Firsts" in 1880-toc privy

    Fantastic finds! The photographs are a real gem, you don't see those come out of the ground very often. I would be tempted to check out census records to determine who lived in the house in the 1880s - that may give some leads as to who these fellows are. Great finds all around, hope the rest...

I designed these mugs for myself featuring some of the cooler bottle collecting designs that I found, and I like them so much that I think other diggers/collectors might be interested in them too. You...

    Holiday Gifts For Bottle Diggers

    I'm starting this thread as a way to post products that are geared for the bottle digger / collector (besides bottles!) and that would make a good gift for the holiday. I've come across a bunch of interesting items over the past year or so (antique bottle candles, good bottle brushes) but I...

    Some Recent Digs

    I have't posted in awhile, since my old username Brichardson58 vanished from the ABN system for some reason :( At any rate, I have been digging periodically over the summer. Mostly 1890s-19teens stuff, with the occasional late throw. Here are some dig pictures and a couple interesting bottles...
