Realized I hadn't posted for a while. Went out this past Sunday (and boy was it hot) but had some luck. Found two hard to find Galveston hutch sodas, a hard to find quart beer bottle from Galveston, and a nice center script Coca Cola bottle from Galveston (the first I have found intact). All of this in a trash pit hidden under an old brick walkway...had to break out the sledgehammer to get through it!

Those are some great finds! I'd be happy with any one of them. Don't let that bear slip up on you out in this heat, man.

Yeah...I get to my dig site just before daylight and dig until about midday. Usually go through nearly two gallons of water.

Made it out again Sunday and dug a lot of holes in the blazing sunshine and heat. Unfortunately a lot of them were oyster pits or super old pits with broken stuff in them. Nonetheless, brought home one intact Hutch soda and this neat little tiny medicine bottle from San Antonio.

Not really...this company sold a few different medicines. Could be some sort of eye medicine is my suspicion as I have seen newer (labeled) tiny screw top eye medicine bottles from them. Never seen any embossed bottles from them though!

Apparently the Chinese "bottle" (page 4 of my post) is actually an opium pipe bowl. You never know what you might dig up!
