Construction crews are continuing to tear up ground in my neighborhood.
This was a surface find...
Carter's Ink, just under 6", olive green, with pour spout.

Very nice! I don't know if I'd call it olive, reminds me at the top of some later Lockport bottles but that may be the lighting and graphic on my computer.

Found one like this in more of a lite olive green shade - like yours more though...

Looks like it has unusually nice character to the glass for one of those. Danged nice surface find!
 
I've seen that color frequently, but the thing I noticed is that the lettering was running vertically rather than running along the shoulder horizontally. Nice piece. Your story reminds me of the time I found a nice blob top beer in my back yard that was being filled in. I found it in between the marks of the tread plates from the bulldozer. Thanks for sharing your find!
