    Can anyone help date this clay pipe bowl.

    Can anyone help date this clay pipe bowl I dug yesterday.
    Most of the finds from the site are from the early 1900s.
    There are some indian pottery chards on the ground, but due to the mold seam I'm pretty sure its not indian.
    Someone said it could be a possible trade pipe.
    The side not pictured has a burn mark and a pinhole in it. Either this pipe was thrown in a fire, or it got really hot and had a blow out.
    I have seen similar ones that people suggest are mid 1800's
    Does anyone know what period/dates where this type of bowl was commonly manufactured and used.
    Thanks.
    Here is the original post I put in todays finds last night.
    Big Silver. Clay Pipe bowl and Marbles. UCV and Biloxi Artesian bottles.

    I definitely see what you are saying. Beneath the brown glaze the pipe looks grayish.
    I ran my garrett pinpointer over the pipe and there was no tone. It is very light, and I do not think it is metal.
    Thank you for replying to this thread.

    1860-1890. I find them in privies quite often dating to this time period. Clay pipes. No metal. Jgas
