This is from what looks to be a fairly large dump. Found most of them about a foot to foot and a half under muck with a probe.
Another Tip Top Bottling Works, Dr Drake's Croup Remedy, couple of ketchup bottles, maybe an olive bottle, and sadly half of a JS Wahl's Bottling Works from Caruthersville.
Did find loads of purple tint shards with a starburst pattern, but nothing intact.

Pretty slow around here waiting on the lake to drop, but I finally had a chance to search a bit today.
Hick's Capudine good for headaches colds and grippe, a purple tint Vaseline and two aqua stopper tops of some sort.
Broken crockery, Mason jars, sodas, and liquor were much more plentiful.
This looks like a promising spot if the water level will cooperate.

Had about an hour before sunset today and found another dump. This one has more from the 30's and 40's, but I did find a mystery cork top. Only marking is L 1356 S on the bottom.
Moroline embossed, amber MeRck, small milk glass and the largest milk glass I've found.
Threw in a shot of my hunting waters. Would have had a nice cottonmouth pic, but I was to slow with the phone and he didn't hang around long.

I was going to say before I read it all looks more like a swamp, got to keep an eye on those critters. The things we do. Giddy up

Hey Mingoman64,
Is the cottonmouth a water surface sidewinder? ..That sure is one big cold cream jar. ..Nice bots and excellent effort. --CT Len

Cotton Mouth Water Moccasin is Deadly & something you don't want to get to close to, in my opinion. That Swamp doesn't look like a area I'd be looking for Bottles. LEON.

I have snake boots for the farm and wear those so long as I'm not in the water.
Really as long as you don't accidentally step on one they'll avoid you. I'm still amazed though how a 3' snake can disappear in the smallest clump of grass however.
This is one I walked up on at the farm earlier this year.
