Go Up Go Down

I went to a World War 1 Camp site this morning. I found and old trash pile. I have not cleared it out yet and need to go back. I found it when the small ring thing sounded off on my metal detector. It gave off a 88 with a high pitch tone. Which shows up around an quarter. When I started digging I kept coming up with the rest of the stuff. I dug every signal no matter what, even nails and as I pulled the glass and dish pieces out stuck them in my bag. All the glass has air bubbles in it so should all be period glass. The big brown black item left middle is a folding knife. The top piece of glass right above the blue glass is the bottom off a H.J.Heinz catchup bottle. Just wish I would have found a whole bottle or plate.

From information I found on the bottle bottom.
"#162 on the bottle tells us that your bottle is an old Heinz Ketchup bottle. It was produced between 1918 and 1923 and held 8 ounces of ketchup.
This "octagon" bottle was machine made and had 3 labels: a die-cut keystone label on the front panel along with a shoulder label and a "necktie" around the "throat" area. There was also a label on the reverse side opposite the front label area. "

While working the are I also found a 1913 Barbers head dime was off to the side of the trash.
