    Two for the price of one!

    Hello all fellow diggers. Today we got a chance to open a fairly large plug and start our journey downward. Of course we began with setting up the dig site. We always do our best to leave the area as original as possible. So we started out with some serious bricks blocking every shovel jab. Ugh I hate that. But at least maybe the bricks didnít make it to the use layer. We were about 2 feet down or so and found a straight layer of bricks that appeared to bisect the center of the pit. Kinda strange. More digging and now into small field stones. A pile of em good for any rock garden!

    Finally through all of the stones and bricks and now about 5 feet down we started hitting some glass. Mostly small slick meds and a shattered confection jar from Saint Louis. Then out pops a nice Jacob Jahn pint blob beer. A decent one from these parts. Then a good looking blob pops up only to have an empty slug plate. Ugh. A whole crier!! We were around 1890 or so and out pops a Lockport Gargling Oil. Thatís about an 1885 bottle I believe. Great color. Some smashed insulators showed but we were able to save two. A Brookfield and a Hemingray. Some more nice color. I did find the top to the confection jar. It is a Candy Brothers from Saint Louis. Went on to score a perfume and a cool little pharmacy bottle from Lawrence Kansas. Although it has a lip chip itís still one of the best finds I think. Last bottle to show up whole was a Schenks Pulmonic Syrup. Cool octagonal shaped bottle. I did happen upon a plastic pipe that is flat out bad to the bone. Never see one like this before. It was a huge pit that appeared to be two pits. One side had wines and champagne bottles and the other side was beers and pipes. A his and her special privy. Big hole all filled in and ready for the next. Until next time have fun and be safe out there. Jgas. Click image for larger version.

    Fantastic dig. I'm sitting probably 60 yards as I type from a pretty large privey. Plan on some testing with cooler weather. Congratulations on the finds.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    Awesome pit(s) jgas! I love the patina on the gargling oil, and I really like that big slick chem in your cleanup pics. And that pipe is something else!
