    Found the OLD dump on the 1860s farm.

    A while back I showed you finds from the 1920s dump at a 1860s farm permission. Well I wanted to find the oldest spot and it looks like I just did. Pulled these pontils sticking out off the surface! Any ideas to what kinds of bottles they were?

    This dump is close enough to the neighbors house, that I will definitely have to ask for their permission to dig. Hopefully I will find more when I go back!

    Hard to tell what the aqua piece is. The dark green one is a soda. You most definitely need to get out there and dig!

    That's a very good sign. I'd be all excited to start digging, as long as you can find some whole Pontils you'll be doing real good. LEON.

    Depending on scale, I'd say that the leftmost shard next to the soda shard was a "puff" blown bottle, 1840s.

    Can't wait to see what you pull out of this dump... we're all sitting on the edge of our seats

    Definitely returning to this spot when I am able to!
