SWEEET! Congrats Ron on one of the ultimate GOLD RUSH finds!
Heard about this awhile back, and was looking forward to seeing it.
Thanks for sharing.
Looks like an 1850s dump, any chance of whole bottles coming out?

Couple area loaded with glass. I am sure there are a few whole bottles hiding in there.

Thanks for the great video and sharing such a great find. Your restorations are amazing ,did you learn through trial and error , or (as I suspect) do you have some form of formal training?

Just trial and error. Kind of enjoy the challenge of repairing some of the thing I find.
