I've been intrigued by these for years especially since I had never recovered one in 30 years of digging, diving and detecting.

Looks like I found a winner from 1875, too bad is what not whole, really would've made my day. It is a Cherry Toothpaste.

These Gosnells lids are unfortunately generally very common world wide and worth around $30 in good condition, These have a great pictorial . Your part lid would date to around 1880 and the blue one pictured could go back to the late 1860,s
