I typically do metal detecting but am very interested in bottle digging as well if anyone would be willing to teach me a thing or two, or let me tag along!

I live right in the middle of two next to the old cotton mill I've lived hear 20 years an never know this place was not even 100 yards from my my home. But it's a dump site for the mill village that was used for 50 years give or take. The oldest thing I've dug up was a Madison bottling works 1872 that was broken. Dixie list that bottle as extremely rare it's so rare there is no price or value on it. I dug two of that one an three social circle bottling works all broke but a good sign an very possible there are more. The newest is a GA plate dated 1948. This place is huge it covers an acre an was over grown I've dug five foot in the ground an still finding stuff. The spot I've been digging I've pulled mostly stuff from the 1910 -1940 the deeper you dig the older the stuff. I've dug well over 100 bottle out of there already an able big enough out of the side of a hill that it's almost over my head. I've been going twice a day mostly in the morning an after noon sometimes at night. When it's not so hot. So that's what I've been working for the past mouth. The pics are some of what I've found the first ist a regular coke bottle it's a Christmas coke an the second run of that coke bottle dated dec 6 1923, Dr pepper Frome the same time the broken one is the social circle bottling works it would be worth 3-4 hundred in one piece. An 1900 colbot blue Emerson drug co. If your interested let me know. Cause I'm about to go in about an hour .

Here is the dig site the First one is where I found the bottling works an most of the older stuff. An the last to is the huge hole I've dug collecting bottles. The picture does not give it justice.

Shore but let me find this phone I don't want to post it on hear. I have an uncle that lives in Stockbridge from hear it's like 20 but that's if your riding with my other uncle his brother that is staying with me. Let's say he has a bad driving record and scares the hell out of me. You got a pin pointer with your metal detector?
