So, Whats New??

After the Coke Club Convention I hadn’t been doing much with collecting or the blog.  I was kind of ‘Coke’d out and have spent the last few weeks just getting caught up on everything around the house, work, etc.

    We did manage to venture out a week or so ago to an Estate Sale advertising Coca-Cola items and McCoy pottery. By the time we got there all of that stuff was gone. We poked around anyway and found a few small items. I did find an interesting Indian Motorcycle lighter, and the price was right….even if I don’t collect motorcycle stuff.  I thought I would put it on ebay with ‘Buy It Now’ and it sold in an hour! I guess I had the price too low? But, hey I was happy…the buyer was happy. And now I have some extra bottle money. It looks like I will be needing it. Someone called me last week and has 80 Straight Sided Coca-Cola bottles plus ‘odd ball’ bottles for sale.   I love the ‘odd’ bottles, incorrect color, wrong markings, off brands, Coca-Cola copy cats, etc.  Who knows what they have, but I’ve got a little extra jingle in my pocket, so I might be bringing home a few bottles.

Wish me luck!

    So, I am interested in finding out about an old Coca Cola bottle I have. I previewed your book. My bottle is straight sided, 7 oz. with an applied top and lots of bubbles. It is actually thicker on one side than the other. It has an embossed “Coca Cola” at the base but there are no other markings. From what I read in your book it should have a city name embossed on it, but it doesn’t. It was found in an old dump on a home site in Oregon. Any info. or direction to send me would be appreciated. Thanks! Phyllis

      Some of the straight sided bottles did not show a City/State. With Coca-Cola at the base, it may be an early version of the straight side, around 1900 to 1905. Most collectors look for certain City/States, but some do collect ones like yours. Depending on condition, it could sell for around $30 to $40.
