Any idea the age of the well? If there is a loose brick you can see if there is a manufacturer's initials on it. You can then look up the age of the manufacturer's operations to date the well.Hey @Mailman1960 , I'm going to be making a follow up to my dig from yesterday here:
Long time, no post. Trying to keep the forum alive and would rather not post on Bragbook. As always, feedback or recommendations are welcome because I'm a noob. After searching for over a year across different states, I believe I finally found my first undug well. I happened upon this spot by...www.antique-bottles.net
Essentially, I'm 15 feet down and hit water but have at least 5+ left to bottom. I did find a cork 3iii bottle at the water table, but nothing else.
You are soo much more dedicated than I am...
10+ ft. and only 2 1900+ bottles?
I would head to greener pastures...
Do you. Please, prove me wrong and find some cool shit!
I dig the story.I'd call this Bad Advice in my opinion. Why? last Well I dug the guys I was digging with kept saying the same thing as newtothiss. I told them I wasn't quitting until I hit Bottom, they kept saying I was wasting my time. Long Complicated story. BUT, In a nutshell, luckily I kept digging, Why you ask? Because at the bottom was 2 Cobalt Blue Hutch's. Norris & Guyette. BUT, The thing is, the guy that kept saying lets move on, his most wanted to dig Bottle was a Cobalt Blue Guyette Hutch. He/We Dug one. He would of never got his most wanted Bottle if I didn't persist & insist on keep going. Moral of Story. Never Stop until you hit Bottom. Plus all the best Bottles are at the Bottom. LEON.
