Got back out to the construction site to see if anymore dirt was moved. Had planned on just digging up remnants of a trash pit to find some bottles and marbles. But once I got to the site I could see that more of the site had been scraped. More buttons and old relics came flying out. I ended up finding a nice Civil War Confederate Artillery button, an old brass railroad tag, a couple of old brass rings, a few old bottles and some other miscellaneous items.

You had an amazing hunt 'B', the St. Louis & Southern Railway Tag is a great find. :thumbsup:
The fact that you were able to 'eyeball' so many complete bottles was a nice bonus.

Great pics too,
Dave
