Looks like your closing in judging by the amount of shards you found.
ROBBYBOBBY64.
It may be a year before I can do anything besides walk over it. I saw tractors working the fields today and if they're hipping rows, I'd wear out my welcome digging through those.
If I can at least find the source I'll be ready next fall.

Decided to go search where I'd left the black fragment.
While I was there I dug another green bottle, whats left of it. No seams on any of the pieces I found and a very dark green.
Maybe I can get an idea on dating this dump from it.
Picking up 2 grandkids tomorrow so I'm done with bottle hunting for now.

Todays finds.
A medicinal bottle of some kind. The only marking is 3xii, nothing on the base.
Another Chattanooga Medicine Co bottle, this one isn't broken.
A jar that needed to come home with me for some reason and a few stopper shards from where I found the med bottle.
Merry Christmas everyone.

Finds from today.
North Baltimore Bottling Glass Co, has 1002 after the N B B G Co.
Wish it had the label, but the whole under water thing works against me.
Memphis TN Orange Crush Bottling Co from 36
Another Fremont Grape Juice
Maybe a blob top and a few others.

I've perfected my technique for finding interesting broken bottles.
Marked Coca Cola Bottling Co, Blytheville Ark.
Closest match I've found is an Art Deco bottle on sha.org, even has the stars.

Had a chance to probe the dump I found the NBBG Co bottle this afternoon.
Bricks, broken crockery, a E R Durkee & Co fragment then finally whole bottles.
Really happy with the Tip Top Bottling Works from Blytheville. I found one around 50 years ago and doubted I'd ever find another.
Horlick's Malted Milk, Racing WI
H J Heinz Co 138 bottle
Another Armore Top Notch Brand Grape Juice
Plus an old flask, pre prohibition,
Medical/extract bottle and an old drinking glass that has an amethyst tint.
Still no hutch, but a good day for me.
