Jimmy D. & I took off after Church today and drove about 40 minutes away. Met a couple at an older house and think We talked with them for almost an hour😳
Good visit though and they told Us that they had ran a guy off about 4 years ago that detected their yard when they were gone. When they came home he chased him off. He told them that he had the Mayors permission to detect the whole town?🤷🏼‍♂️ Who does that!!! Anyway he left open holes all over their yard. Some People!!!!
After talking for almost an hour We convinced them to let Us
hunt. Turns out they’re good Christian folk and know some of the people We do. He’s gonna put Us a good word in for several houses around them for Us to hunt!!! That’s Awesome!!! We let them see everything We found and they watched for a little while. So much better when You run into great folks like this.
Anyway Jimmy kind of tore it up with 4 Silvers, 2 of which were a Merc cut in half😳! The bottle has 1877 embossed in the bottom. I ended up with one Barber Dime , 2 Buffalo Nickels and 5 Wheats!!

The bottle says “E.R. Durkee & Co. New York” on the side. Think it’s an old salad dressing bottle. Has 1877 stamped on the bottom which is probably the patent date.

Nice hunt.
The bottle have any other symbols/writing?
Machine made, aluminum cap maybe 30's-40's.
Was both halves in the same hole?
I have one silver dime, halves were 10ft apart.
Had permission to hunt the whole town, the gall of some people's children.

The 2 halves were about 2 feet away from
Each other. The bottle has more writing and says something elixir. It’s stamped 1877 on the bottom. Must be the patent date. I’ll see if I can get the writing on the side to You.

That's very cool that you got both half's of the dime. I think that your bottle is a pepper sauce bottle. 1960s to present. I have a bottle like that in use.
Thanks! He looked it up and it was a salad dressing bottle.
