Ayers “269”

Found this tonight in an odd spot on the creek that I believe was a well or dump. Bottle in question is the bottom left one. This was also my first time finding a complete aqua colored, blown in a mold bottle.

I’m finding stuff online that says mid to late 1800s. Anyone have input?

Cool! I found a picture of one with the “Hair Vigor” wrapping on it that matched the bottle as well

There should be more BIM stuff if you keep at it at that spot!
Going back today with an actual shovel! I just had my hand tools with me last night. The ground is all iron ore gravel. I did some research and I believe this area was a dump up until the 40s

Sounds like you've got some potential there--happy digging!

Thank you! Looking forward to it. Gonna talk to the business owner who is in front of it, to see if I could use their back drive instead of hiking down the creek

The cologne/perfume at the top left of your photo looks like it might be pre-1900 as well. Maybe post a close-up of the neck showing the seam?
