Wow, that's by far the oldest Wyeth bottle I've ever seen. Does it have a pontil? If not it looks like it just missed having one.

Just missed the pontil era. But does have the early Wyeth address. I'm guessing early 1870s.

Dude, you find more stuff turned up by construction sites than I thought possible after OSHA laws resulted in what used to be open lots now being totally buttoned up and inaccessible. Maybe in your area they don't care about fencing? Either way, great finds, and I'm totally jealous.

The big excavation sites (office buildings, malls, and condos) are impossible to access, and I don't try. Individual rowhouse foundation digs are far less secure. A breezeway often is sufficient to access the tailing pile at the rear of the lot. And other lots are left totally open, sometimes for weeks.

Sounds like my neighborhood. LEON.
