More Success in the Edisto River

The Lowcountry of SC is in the midst of a rainy pattern so we have had to seize the opportunity to dive the Edisto whenever the level is low enough and weather permits. Even though the water was high and the current was moving faster than we normally like to go, we settled into a good area and started working the deposits. The spot is loaded with big fossil shark teeth, but unfortunately most are broken or mangled by the constant sand blasting of the river current. I also found a nice quartz spear point and two really old bottles - one Orange Crush bottle from 1920 and a SC Dispensary Bottle from around 1907. The SC Dispensary bottle is pretty rare and is only the second one I've ever found and the first from the Edisto. It has a marking on the bottom that says "E.P. Jr. & CO."
Location Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
