Thanks people! This dump is pretty glorious. I haven't dug down to the bottom (have stopped at a layer of burned glass and stoneware mixed with clay and been following the juice above that zone) so hopefully nice older layers will be available below but I certainly ain't complaining either way. I'd figure that the areas I've been digging date to 1907-1910 or so, which is a few years earlier than my first TOC dump.

Here is another sweeet find, a rare Durkin's Citrate of Magnesia:

This dump is totally loaded with the good stuff. 'Bout time I landed myself another honey hole. [8D]

WOW! That magnesia is a killer! I have never seen one of those before! I'm sure that is a new one for the collection! Keep up the digging!

Hmm, best call the authorities and have them cap this contaminated landfill. It seems everyone who even sees a picture of it comes down with the dreaded bottle fever! Lol, great finds! I hope there are many more amber Cokes and local gems to come for you there.
