A while back I posted about my dad's friend who had a bottle dump on his 1860s farm property. I ended up finding over 13 1920s sodas and other cool bottes from those digs. I finished the dump and my dad's friend stated that he was moving to a 60 acre 1740s farm property! He also said that I would be able to dig! Two days ago he told my dad he and the other owner had located a bottle dump on his new property! I don't know where or how old it is yet but, this weekend I am going to meet with him and the other owner. Fingers crossed on an 1800s dump (or older :))!

Nice, good luck! With a farm that old which has never been searched before there's definitely a good chance of finding a dump from the 19th century.

I did look on the property and I identified a small 1930s-1940s dump. I don't think that this spot is the main dump though. Unfortunately I have to wait until the underbrush clears enough to search the other 60 acres.

Sounds promising! This time of year is tough when it comes to digging or finding dumps with all the foliage. Hopefully the rivers will drop next month enough to dig in them.

Did you see any old rusty Beer Cans in that 1930's-40's dump? I collect those. Let me know. THANKS, LEON.
