Default Digging bottles in the Mountains

Went digging in the mountains again. Found some nice little medicine bottles. Found some common bottles. We also found some assayer’s crucibles. We find a lot of those here in the mountains. While walking across the field I thought I spotted a quarter on the ground and when I picked it up and to my surprise it was an old 1880s Leadville CO. saloon token.

This is private property. The land owner is very nice and allows bottle diggers.
