    Might be some nice old bottles in the bottom of the privy...coins are a possibility as well.

    Thanx. He said he's had it for about 30 yrs and nobody has hunted since he's had it. I can only hope its true.

    That's a big area to cover, enough to last for years. Don't get discouraged, initially, you'll be hitting on the bigger pieces of iron and assorted junk. As you clean it up, the best finds will come.

    The Lady Esther Rouge compact is from the late 1930's the buckle looks like a harness buckle. Great looking site.

    it sounds like you may have found the last privy in use, if the home was built in the early 1800's and used until at least the 1930's there will be probably 4 or 5 more privy holes not far from the last used as about every 20 yrs or so they would fill in and dig another pit. the best stuff to be found will be in the pre 1900's pits and you will have to probe around to locate them.
