Well , Well. Was it a Well or a Privy ? That stayed the question between Bill and I the whole day. Nevertheless, we had a very fun day and we had some nice bottles to boot.
Buddy and Mike Starting the hole.
Bill starting to dig in the clay layer.
Here is the Well, oops! I mean Privy, sorry Bill @ 20 feet. It stared getting wet at, I think about 18 feet down.
Mike pulls up a nice one. What is it?
Bill just pulling up a super Green Berry Bottle. While he is holding it here it looks like an olive green but it is actually a Grass Green. When we held it up in the light we could instantly tell it had a blue film on the inside and that they were using this bottle as a master ink!
Ole Man River sure had a heck-of-a-day , but he STILL held onto the best bottle that he ultimately got in the pick. Sorry Sucker!
Here is a broken B.J.Semmes Whiskey from Memphis. This would have been a good one.
Here is the Green Berry bottle after we got some of the ink cleaned out . We've been digging alot of Green bottles lately, have you noticed?
We also found some other interesting heart-breakers. B.J. Semmes Memphis whiskey, Perkins , Stern & Co., And an awesome barrel-shaped food bottle. Some of the hole ones were : 2 regular sized 1860's snuff bottles and a small sized snuff (neat), W.B. Safford Memphis Drug bottle, Eureka Hair , quite a few unmarked druggist and medicines , a barrel spigot and on the top a religious and a 1945 Mercury Dime.
