    I found a bottle that has on the front: Trademark Registered Bottle Pat. D-105529 On the back: Trademark registered Min contents 6- Fl ozs. Numbers beside an odd looking emblem 3 emblem 39…and then on the bottom: Daytona Beach FLA. Can you give me any information on this bottle?
    thanks

      Your bottle was made in 1939. Daytona Beach bottles are not considered rare, worth around $5 to $20 depending on condition, etc.

    Hello, I found one of those clear miniature bottles in south eastern ontario canada. It is embrossed with coca cola and has a diamond with a dot inside and right beside the diamond is another dot and a dash also on the bottom. Could you give me any info on this bottle. Its around 2 and a half inches tall.
    thanks, Mary

      The miniature bottle first came out in the 1930’s, part of a toy Coca-Cola truck. They have been made off and on over the years. There is also a minature bottle that has a wide mouth, that was a perfume bottle. Depending on which version you have it is worth between $10 to $50.

    Doug, I was at the Longest Yard sale this past week. It was wild around Crossville Tn and traffic was terrible. Had a good time though. A guy GAVE me a two liter glass Coke bottle. It is big, heavy and in good shape? What is the deal on those. Same guy gave me 12 Double Cola two liter bottles with caps on seven of them. I bought ten old pepsi (40s ?) for a dollar. We did most of our shopping on the side and back roads staying away from the dealers.

      I’ve wanted to go on that yardsale, but ever year something comes up and I can’t make it. Sounds like you found some great stuff! Are the Double Cola 2 Liter bottles have ACL and returnable? Or one way/no deposit bottles?
      The Coca-Cola 2 Liter bottle came out in 1976. It was very heavy when it was full, not a consumer friendly package. By the late 1970’s a plastic bottle was developed. So, the 2 Liter returnable bottle was in use for a short time period.
      You did find some great deals! Maybe one day I’ll make it to the sale.

    I inherited 7 six packs of coke bottles that have not been opened and in their matching carrying cases. I have had luck on pricing most of them but there are six bottles I am having trouble with. All six are 8 oz glass bottles and full with coke with caps in great condition. These are the six towns I have: 1-Alliance NE, Cokeville NY, Chicago IL, DallasTX, Charlotte NC, & Grand Canyon AZ. I read some of your articles and know that these could be reintroductions of the older bottles that were stopped in the early sixties so how can I tell? The one’s I have been able to find are 75th Mickey InspEARations, 75 yr anniversary with Sunblom Santa, 2004 NCAA Final Four San Antonio, 2001 Live the Magic with Santa, 2004 The Target dog and Santa, & 2004 Holiday edition with Santa on it. So did I inherit a bunch of fizzed out coke or my kids college fund start? Thanks for your time. Alisha

      The bottles you have sounds like the reintroduction versions and not old. Worth around a few dollars each. Sorry.
