We went back to the park digging up gas lines hoping they did some more. They did do a little. Right in front of the bobcat, right on top of the ground was a complete bottle! Sadly, nothing on it. Got a Leavenworth button that according to an old post here is from 1839-1849! Our oldest! The little button is military but pretty toasty. I see the eagle and shield though. One of the shotgun shells is PCC League 10 gauge. First of those we found. The only coin was a 1940 nickel. Oh well. We had fun. I sure hope they dig up some more! I love the bits of glass and pottery! Have a great tomorrow!

I like the bottle. Does it have a pontil scar? Looks to be tooled or applied lip so most likely 19th century.

Nice recoveries.
Liking the bottle as well
A picture of the side seem will narrow down the age range, and it there's any markings on the bottom.
Best of luck if they dig some more.

The bottom is totally smooth.
