It didn't look like that when I started, it was just ferns and leaves with a couple spots with bottles showing lol.

Some jars I picked up before they got re-buried by my haphazard digging.

There's quite a bit of stuff there. Might have been multiple households dumping there in that case, it looks bigger than most of the farm dumps I come across.
I am very curious about the small foundation in the last pic.

The flat top can in the middle of your first pic is Obvious to me to be a CAN-A-POP Cola. As for the cone top in 2nd pic to me it appears to far gone. With My about 50 years experiance in Can Collecting it greatly helps you determine what is saveable & what is probably to far gone. In rare cases even when you can determine what the to far gone can is after cleaning it is usually to far gone to have any value, even if rare. I sometimes clean these type of cans just out of curiousity to see what it is, it's usually a wasted common can which I quickly toss in the Garbage Can. LEON.

Yeah the first Pic was just the pile of cans that didn't crumble getting them out.
The can in the second pic is surprisingly solid, much more than it looks. Is it just solid rust making it seem so?

Here's a rare cone top from Washington State I fixed up. Looks like some one stepped on it flat as a Pancake. LEON.
