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.
1930s dump may have some depression glass. I like finding it, all I find is green and some pink.

Would you rather dig 1800s dumps that are all extremely rocky? or Dig 1930s dumps that are all surface and easy digging?
I live off Georgian Bay. I have no choice BUT to dig rocky dumps.
My dump only, at most, has dirt about 1 foot deep. However I’ve found almost 100 bottles. With 1800s dumps you also have a greater chance of getting more valuable items. Sure, in the 1930s dump you’d find more items, but the 1800s one is my choice any day.
