Here’s the only “complete” bottle that came from the site. It’s definitely newer than the stuff dug out of the hole. Found it on the surface off in the woods a ways. It almost has that ball blue color to it and a very thick base. The overall shape resembles a clicquot club bottle but it’s a slick.

I've been probing for years & still have a hard time determining if it's Glass or a Rock, especially if it's 4 or 5 feet down. Tom will always tell me it's just a rock 100% of the time, he likes to do that. But only 50% of the time he's right but the other 50% it is a bottle. My Theory is you never know till you dig it so dig it. What if you walk of thinking just a Rock when it's really a Killer 1860's Pontiled Bitters? You'd never know unless you dig it. LEON.

The ticks are so bad up north I won’t be going back for a while. Prolly picked off a total of 20 last time I was out. The area is covered in tall grass so as long as I stay out of that I usually don’t get them on me.

Just like usual there is tons of 70’s crap in the area.. took home this diet squirt because I haven’t seen one before, it cleaned up okay.

To bad you do not have a backhoe. If it is a well, the interior wall would be lined with rock. If it is a privy, probably not lined with rock. The closeness to the house, makes me think a privy. Probably worth digging it, if you are young and strong. Cheers
