Nice Stuff, Really hard for me to find any Privy's from pre 1880's in my area. Congrats. LEON.
I love that advertising coaster! Shame it's broken but I suppose that's typical for that sort of thing, and it'll repair really nicely. The Russ' is great too, never seen that one before.Went out Sunday and found a privy pretty quickly in the morning. Unfortunately, with all the rain down here, it was a battle keeping it dry and the privy ended up being huge (8' x 4' x 7' deep) so I only dug to the center brace and left the other 4' for next time. Unfortunately, though it was early (1860's), it had a very thin use layer (6" thick at the bottom of the privy) and I only found one slick and a bone toothbrush that were whole. With the last bit of energy I had, I punched a small hole in an area with a thin layer of trash and found this beer advertising coaster, which I was pretty excited about even though it was in three pieces. Just to give an idea of the size of the toothbrush, the coaster is 6" in diameter. Its a big toothbrush!
I think it is from around 1910 or so. Definitely pre-prohibition, but based on the context it was found in, post 1900.Very nice! I also love that coaster. Looks like something you might see today, which is an awesome tie to the past. What age do you think it is?
