And a few of the other odds and ends I dug. Love the marbles and the little chamber pot.

I really like the Hutch's & Gravitating Stopper Bottles. Nice finds. Bummer about the Crier. Glad to see I'm not the only one out digging Privy's. LEON.

Leon,

I love digging early stuff, so the gravitating sodas really made me happy. Hard to get that sort of age in Texas.

Went out Saturday and poked around...probed a medium sized privy and got my hopes up, but it was not to be. Privy was loaded but with 1915-1920 stuff and mostly junk. Also had a ton of scrap wood in it that made the digging super hard. Came home with a bunch of stuff for the dollar box (and some stuff that my son packed up when I was not looking that I would not normally have taken home). You win some and lose some! At least I got enough dollar bottles to pay for gas!

In westren New York the soil is so rocky and the bedrock is like 2 feet down. Most of the bottles are on thr surface or half buried.

Leon,

It's a Galveston hutch but damaged. I might get $5-$10 for that.

Went out again on Saturday. First pit was an oyster pit; even though these don't usually have many bottles they do often have pottery so I always dig them. Found this cool small (quart) pottery jug in there that I am super happy with. Second hole was a large privy but unfortunately completely clean...literally not a bottle in it. My son (who turned 9 this weekend) dug his own hole and found a bird cage feeder so he was quite happy. Tough day overall (it was super hot too) but the jug made me happy. Could even be a Texas pottery.

Marbles are my weakness! Those are lovely and I can't get over the fact that you guys are digging them! Here in Alabama, red clay and chirt are the norm and it's almost impossible to do holes unless you have a specific location to go into. Any marbles I've seen found, I have not been so lucky, were from tractors turning under field's. Or in creeks as well.
