The discs are ceramic insulator tops from older mason jars. They are very cool. In some bottle digging videos like the Alabama Boys bottle digs, they come across many of them. Usually buried very deep. These guys rent digging equipment to dig deep into bottle dumps and privy pitts.
We all have our favorite types. I love milk bottles and medicine bottles the best, even if the value is low. Happy hunting.!!

I’m happy to see others who are into the white glass cap pieces from the mason jars lids! We have a nice lil growing stack of them here, a lot of times we’ll find the lids on our hikes, but the zinc parts are all crusted, busted, half gone, etc. Peel that off and then there’s a nice lil glass disc... not sure if any value, but we like finding and saving them, they’re cool :)
