    Hi, I am sorry for leaving this hear. I could not find how to post on the main page. Your collection is wonderful! I have been doing research on this bottle I found. So far I know it’s Anchor Hocking, 1966. It has a 5 on it, which I’m assuming that is the mold number used to make it, and it has a 131..not sure what that one is. Also, it’s appearence..it is twisted. Was a pop cap, clear, and I bleieve 12-16ozs maybe, no etchings so I guess it was a pasted lable, and no city?state. Not sure. It’s not cracked or damaged in any way, and I found it on the bottom of Black river in Missouri. Any thoughts?

      Thank you for your post! You got it right, the 5 is the mold number. Some glass companies used another set of numbers to denote what glass plant made the bottle, so I think that is what the 131 is.
      The painted label (ACL) is missing from your bottle, probably because it was in the water a long time. Over the years the water will wear down the label. Pretty cool find though.
      Thanks for your question!

    My son is a collector of commemorative Coca Cola bottles and we are trying to find a list of all the Coca Cola commemorative bottles that have been made. Do you have an idea where I could find it?

    • cocacolabottleman Says:

      It is hard to find a complete list. There are several older books that are good. Here is one website I know of that has a pretty good list: http://www.angelfire.com/pop2/collectorscorner/PriceList.html
      It is a bit aggravating site with pop up ads, etc. The prices are outdated and it only goes to 1999 or 2000. What I did was to go to the site, copy the pages and paste it in a word document. This allows you to print the pages, put in a notebook, mark off what you have. That way you can take it with you while looking for bottles and see what you have and need, etc. I would also suggest to check out the Coca-Cola Club. See if there is a Chapter close to you. When my nephew was collecting Commemorative Coke bottles, he found a ton of them at conventions and meetings.
      Hope this helps.
