    Bucket List Seated surprise, Old coke bottles, SC Disp. Bottles, Buttons and More!

    This random free style permission is starting to amaze me. As you saw in my last posts I've been digging a lot of bottles from a bottle pit. Its not a privy because it looks like there is nothing under a clay layer at around 2 and a half feet deep. I might need a probe just to make sure. This post is a wrap up of my last couple hunts out there in the brutal heat.

    Couple Wrap up shots of the finds.

    I dug my 5th SC Dispensary Bottle and this one is the best yet. Cleaned up with with no chips and is pretty clear.

    Then I dug an awesome Coca Cola Bottling Co Charleston, SC bottle! Now I haven't any examples of this one anywhere and my knowledge of it is minimum. Someone said it might be 1900-1905. Any help on it would be great. The other Coke bottle was another 1906 version, i think.

    I dug another bucket lister. I was getting a very broken 32-33 signal on the Safari. The only reason I was able to hear it was because my speaker on the detector went out and I to dig with headphones in. Might have to wear them every time now. When i popped the plug i could see a tiny round piece of silver and I knew it was half dime! Ended up being my first Seated Half Dime, 1853 and this time its not a counterfeit (if anyone remembers my 1795 Flowing Hair Half Dime which i'm 99% sure is a contemporary fake, still cool but heartbreaker.) If it wasn't holed that would have been even more evidence of pre 1880's occupancy of the site.

    I dug the third CW relic from this site (J-hook, 3 Ringer) and it is my first Confederate SC Cuff. I've only dug 23mm SC buttons but this one is coming in around 19mm. Having a hard time making out the backmark but i think i see a VIL indicating Scovill but not 100% sure. Little smushed unfortunately but i'll take it.

    Dug a pocket watch piece. A two piece button that i can't make out. Guessing post cw. A tag for a Effanbee Doll which dates to the early 1900's. And a odd button with a patent date of Feb. 7, 1888. Was actually able to find that patent online here https://www.google.com/patents/US377446

    A few more pieces of Harmonica reed. A little clasp (not sure). Copper ring. The thing in the bottom left of the pic im not sure on. Its almost like a lead token. Cant make out whats on it. And an odd little piece of brass. You can see 2 on it and left of the 2 looks like it could have been a 3. Not sure what that would have been...any guesses?

    Dang ! Where's the kitchen sink ? You dug everything else . Could you help me understand your comment about the hole in the coin having something to do with the dating of the occupancy of the property - I didn't understand the connection there.

    Well I'm trying to date this site as far as when the house I know was here was built. It was there in 1919 for sure and somewhere in the 30s it was gone. Since I've found 3 cw relics that's a sign that there was troop movement in the area for sure but not enough to say that there were a lot of them and they stayed awhile or that there was a house here that they stayed in. Being holed indicates, to me, that this coin was being worn by someone maybe living around the time that most of the relics are dating to. If it wasn't holed, my theory goes, that it might have been dropped closer to that 1853 timeframe. If that makes sense. That's my theory at least.

    Congrats on a great site, with a little of everything. Awesome sc button, would like to get my coil over one. Congrats on the seated. I've heard that some people holed their coins to carry on a string or wire to help from losing them as with extra buttons. Have seen both found that way so pretty sure it's true. So coin could be from then, would of been wore down good after 10 years of use by the war. HH!
