My buddy and I found a nice, but small pit-style farm dump this summer which produced some great stuff for us both on the two trips we took there. I got some pretty rare ones too. I also had another rock wall find!!!

Here are the finds, I apologize for any photo blurriness.


DAY 1 FINDS (Short after work dig):


A crier glass ointment pot that is so incredibly rare, I had to take the broken half. Smith's Ointment / W.B. Smith / New London, Conn.

An unbleviable unlisted druggist bottle. John E. Griffin / Registered Pharmacist / Taftville, Conn.

My digging buddy got some killer stuff too, including this awesome early and crude Whitall's Patent / June 18th, 1861 or Millville Atmospheric Fruit Jar!

No CT druggist book, but lifetime area collectors have never seen it even while digging in area and it has never been put on ebay. Unlisted is as according to me unless proven listed or seen somewhere otherwise. I am putting together a list of CT druggists.
