Dug a little more and found an old PGP.
Dug a bit more and found a green poly nipple.
Exposed the pipe at the swing joint and found that the swing joint was glued to a street ell, which was threaded into a female adapter, ugh!
It's a good thing you quit digging

almost nothing is more maddening than poly pipe dumped into a trench atop the actual water-carrying pipe - in tight quarters, a scrap piece gets mistaken for the real thing

Pipe scraps, flush caps, wire, water bottles, concrete chunks, cigarette packs, soda cans, etc. All found in trenches. Stay classy folks.

I agree, nothing worse than the "next guy" having to dig up all the crap from the installer.

Just a couple before I go hiking.
I guess that's one way to replace a valve. Clever use of the ol' four 90s application.
And yes that is a plastic wall anchor as a wire nut.
