A day of mostly what ifs.
Broken embossed Falstaff, St Joseph's Assured Purity, and my first 1915 coke.
Did find the usual cork medicines, a pint sized syrup, aqua Carter's ink well, hand blown aqua bottle, and a small liquor flask thats pre prohibition.
I believe I can make a drinking glass with the Falstaff.

Had high hopes from this spot due to the incredible amount of broken stoneware, but only the normal medical cork tops for the most part. Did find an embossed Chamberlain's and a post prohibition Taylor and Williams Whiskey.
A spice jar still sealed with some sort of herb. Has seeds in it I'm going to try and sprout this spring.
Best news is now that its rained a little I was able to probe one of the areas I've found older bottles in the past. There is a large glass field about 2' down up from the normal bank.
Maybe after Thanksgiving I'll find that elusive hutch.

Even though I was supposed to be making Thanksgiving pie for tomorrow I had to make a quick test hole while running the beagles. Came up with an embossed Andrew Lohr Bottling Co from Cairo Ill.
Of course its broken, but I believe I have enough to make a neat drinking glass.

I'd be interested in the Wampole if wanting to sell or trade for it. Regarding the wide mouth amber jar. Yes it is a snuff, They had several based with different dot patterns. Not sure what they indicated, possibly type of snuff or strength? Here is my Levis Strauss labeled snuff from Philadelphia.
