This is kind of a mystery for me. It was found in a World War 1 camp trash pile in Houston Texas. It appears to be one of Coca Cola's "off" brands. Any ideas on it?

Approximate date should be from 1902 the date a near by Coca Cola Plant opened to 1919? Unluckily it has a hole busted through on side. Light green glass. Around the bottom edge it has " PROPERTY OF COCA COLA" then below it "BOTTLING CO." To the left of "Bottling Co". there appears to be POS in faint letters. To the right of "Bottling CO." 1081 . On the other side "HOUSTON, TEX. " toward the bottom. And large and "C. C." in large letters on the bottom. There are no other markings on it. On the neck toward the area it widens up at it has a ring around it.

    Well, it's in block letters so it was probably a flavor drink. It's hard to tell, but from the pictures I think that this bottle is ABM (automatic bottle making machine), so it's from around 1910-1920, most likely from the WWI era. It's value is probably around $10-$15.

    Thank you. Also wondering is there a on line site about what flavors and could you recommend a site about the early Coca Cola flavors and turn of the century bottles?
