Bruce I dug those here on Staten Island at a dump site used by NYC from the 1870's to about 1910. It was a shallow Coastal land Fill. I have no idea as to their Dollar Value. Maybe some of the other contributors here would know.

That is even better Otto, to find them like that, and in that condition.
Those are nice, I like them, I'd go back & dig for more if you can. Nice Finds. LEON.
Leon The dig site is now off limits. That and most of my heavy digging days are behind me. Im kind of a scratcher NOW.
The label looks solid!...is there less alkiline in that soli? the label is well preserved.
Nice one bud

Was digging in a campground dump for Beer Cans when I found this nice Gem. LEON.
I'd guess it dates to around 1870's. I noticed anything & everything from Lomax Chicago seems pretty common. Even the Cobalt Blue Hutches which might be more common the the Detroit Norris Cobalt...
Thanks Daniel. LEON.
Yeah, This site is kinda screwed up. the pics were there at first & then later disappeared. I try adding them again. Let me know if you can see them now? LEON.
Thank you for the research. I particularly enjoyed reading about the Japanese bottle archaeology. I abstracted a few items from that PDF which address the keys to identifying of some of these...
