Hey guys so due to the hurricanes and trees falling on houses houses getting knocked down lots getting empty that’s my bread and butter right now I was late but I did stumble upon a small area in an old part of town that the dozer machinery already got to I would say it was a good 14 inches down that they dug I swung by Coil around the mud pile and found a Celtic cross silver ring and then in 1905 Anna New Orleans transit token that I’ve never seen I have found my fair share of them believe me but this one was brass and very small so I looked it up and what I think I found was the oldest Transit token. I also found two bottles that were in the ground still of what was Doug I cracked the Dr Pepper one which I don’t think his old at all which really surprises me due to how far down it was and a beautiful little miniature green wine bottle with nothing on it which is disappointing but that’s the beginning of my day y’all take care

The small green bottle might have contained bitters. There were many types available in the late 19th and early 20th C.

It’s a very small like wine looking glass like miniaturized and I’ll half to look up what bitters mean lol

*** Bitters is an herb-infused alcoholic mixture. Named for its bitter taste, the liquid was originally developed as a medicinal tonic to help soothe stomach complaints or other digestive disorders. During the late-19th and early-20th centuries, patent medicine dealers bottled and sold the elixir. Americans purchased bitters in simple mold-blown bottles or ones shaped like drums, barrels, or cabins.
