I finally hit a spot old enough to find some amazing pontiled bottles. I've attached pics of an Eagle with Banner half pint, a Beard's Mineral water, and a Dyotteville Glass Works Cylinder, all dug in Boston, MA. Never give up!

I can't imagine the pockets that were hit and then plowed under during that Big Dig years ago. I saw a picture somewhere years ago of some construction guys in a group and in the background was a frigging sidewall of some huge trench and you could see a pocket 20 or 30 feet thick and it was solid bottles,metal, wagon parts and on and on. Wish I could find that pic and post it.

Great location you found! The diggers of old must have overlooked that place!
