Hello fellow diggers; ..I was digging a large hole in Gainesville Fla. and found a couple of interesting items: a gallon Lithia water embossed Harris Springs Lithia Water Harris Springs S.C. ...light green-ish aqua--basically mint except for light stain.The other item is a Gallon? pig-eared crock jug that says "from THE CASPER CO. Winston-Salem N.C. Lowest Price Whisky House write for confidential list". I watched The same Lithia Water sell for 137.50 on eBay; ..but is it really worth that? or a couple of bidders really wanted it bad (regardless of true value). One of the best digs I have had in years, another digger was rude to the owner of the property and basically got everyone kicked out; ...the owner was nice to me as I was always was polite to her. The hole is wide open; ..bottles just oozing out of the bank, ..a gold mine. I dug four Florida SS sodas in one dig. I will add some pics later today.

The Casper jug is a good one! I'd like to see a pic. Not sure how much the jugs go for but the Casper cobalt whiskey bottles usually sell anywhere from $300-$500 on Ebay.

Sounds like a big one,where are your helpers? Glass man is right about the over hang,my worst fear is being buried in a dump,if I am going to go I hope its a pontil privy.[8D] J/k be safe.

Thanks for the help fellow diggers (and the warning about the overhang); ...in Florida overhangs are real dangerous as the "sugar" sand can let loose at any time. That's one of my digging partners in the hole (I took the pic). I rarely dig alone; ..especially in a hole that deep. Here's a pic for you ncbred.
