    OK, That one is extremely common. maybe worth $1.00 at most. You pretty much need to find that in a cone top if rusty to have any value. LEON.

    Question about trash pit

    I truly believe they have some older stuff underneath the 1899 house to 12 ft from the trash pit thatís on a embankment near the river. The 1807 house they put a shotgun house that attaches to the main house and the new owner believes the privy was where the put the bathroom with a slab over it.

    Got to be some much older goodies on that property, and being near New Orleans, there's no telling what you may find. Two of my best bottles are N.O. bottles. Best of luck!
