Dug a loaded pit in Philadelphia on Sunday in the pouring down rain got 274 pontiled sodas 48 stoneware bottles and 15 other assorted pontiled bottles and some other miscellaneous stuff. It took us 22 hours to dig and fill in the pit so we finished up about 4:30am and decided to just take all the bottles home and wash them and get together today and split up the finds.

Holy mackerel, Chris. Those folks probably had to dig another pit just to take a dump.
