Leon, I think I may have a few that are not the ordinary Duraglas & Owens. They're mostly clear, smaller ones. I just don't know enough about them so I can't be for sure exactly what I have.

I live in Canton and would love to help you dig and make sure you have a safety buddy. I collect embossed sodas but I love the thrill of the hunt. You have some interesting glass coming out of the holes

i think you found a dump someone had hid in an old hole , they likely assumed it was a good place to toss stuff . although nothing in the pictures looks that old maybe 40's - 50's era but its possible older stuff is there but yet to be uncovered .

I'd personally try and identify what is worth keeping and take the rest to glass recycling ( if there is recycling in your area ) as its never going to be worth anything

Hi, RCO. Yeah, that's why I keep wanting to dig. I want to get down to the bottom and see what's there. I know I won't quit until I reach the bottom. If I come out good, that's great. If not, there's a few other places I can try out. It's all on my property so I don't have to go far.

In the end, what I find or don't find really doesn't matter to me. I'm probably going to find out more about the people who lived here and the way they lived their lives than uncover a bottle to net me an x amount of dollars. I'm really more interested in the history than anything. And it keeps me moving and in decent shape.

Thanks for chiming in!

If you could find their Privy that will tell you a lot about who lived there & possibly much better much older bottles. Give it a try. Good Luck. LEON.

Be Great to see those bottles , when washed they look very interesting!! Thanks for your Awesome story. You are very brave digging so deep. Good to let someone know your digging and show them where (like your wife) so she knows and can check all is Ok-and maybe arrange to ring at a couple of very particular times-so she will know nothing is wrong.
