1880s, but with a lot of stones/rocks will be a lot of broken bottles etc. and rougher digging. Still great exercise though in this cool weather (Maine).

Definitely older - though the more modern dumps can have the signs and other good pieces too. However, strictly talking bottles - I’d fight the rocks

It'd depend on the size of the dump for me. I've dug plenty of small 19th century farm dumps which are full of rocks, broken glass, and absolutely nothing else. I'd take a large 1930s dump over one of those. Especially one full of sodas, milks, and enamel signs. But otherwise I'd take the rock dump, since I'm not interested in 90% of what you can find in a 30s dump.
