Went out Sunday and continued digging a thin layer of trash that normally would not be worth digging but in this case has been a pretty good producer of sodas provided you move a lot of dirt. Extremely compacted dirt so tough to chip through it without damaging the bottles. Nonetheless, had a pretty successful day; found a nice Lone Star & Coca-Cola mug based crown top soda, a Galveston Mignon crown top (a scare version), an Italian Soda Water Association hutch soda, a Galveston Brewing crown top, and the real find of the day, a Seawall Lemon Splits bottle...really a historic and rare bottle from Galveston commemorating the construction of the Galveston seawall. Advertised in 1905 and 1906 (initial section of the seawall was finished in mid 1904). Over the moon on this bottle...they are very rare and are quite thin bottles that rarely survive. Lots of embossing too...script on one side and more standard embossing on the other.
