GEM. I don't seem to dig to many of these GEM Fruit Jars. LEON.
Na you don’t want that just send it to me and I’ll get rid of it for ya.Saturday a Friend of mine invited me to try to dig some Privy's at a 1901 House he got Permission from. SO, When I get there, 2 bad signs, 2 newer additions added to back side of House & in back Corner a Big Shed, right where they typically put the Privy, I probe all around back property line & nothing, I probe up left side & nothing. Didn't wanta probe right side because he said right side had a Ceptic Tank & about a extra 2 foot of dirt added on top of whole right side & it was because it was a foot or 2 higher then neighbors yard on that side. At fence line dropped at least a foot. I probed behind addition & felt lots of crunchy glass. SO, We start digging & this is our first Bottle only like a foot down. Teal Blob, I guessed what it was before it ever got pulled out of the dirt. What's your guess? LEON.

Also dug one of these, Frank Miller Crown Dressing, I've dug a few of these before so assume pretty Common. Do other People regularly dig these in other Parts of the Country? LEON.

I guess dirty crowns were a real problem back then. I can’t even imagine how hard that must of been.
