188os Seafood Jar

seafoodThese are some of the best bottles I dug over the years.

Bottle : rare Burnhams Seafood jar NY

Year dug: 2112

Where dug: Upstate NY

Type of site: Privy

Notes: Visiting with my bottle digging buddies in upstate NY, digging a few small privies. This is a pretty rare jar, and was covered with white “privy” stain, so I had it cleaned and it came out nice. It dates to around 1880, I am thinking it contained oysters or maybe scallops.
