If I have this right, It's the first bottler's contract for Nashville in 1975, from Coca-Cola Co. Atlanta, Ga....And if I'm right again, the date on the bottom, it's 36 years old today!! 1/13/74..... I have had this in my garage for a long time. Just happend to find it today.... Am I right CC kid?

    Yes, your right. only thing I can't put my finger on is that why would it be made early in the year of 1974... I think that bottle mold code is just a very odd coincidence. Usually these bottles were made in the year of the anniversery. But it would be very cool if that was the date it was made. But if bottle makers had to switch the same mold everyday, or the numbers in the mold, I think it would just be to much work.

    Maybe it was one of the first batch of bottles made before the anniversery was offical..... Who knows..... Thanks CC kid....

    CCKid, These bottles were issued for the 75th Anniversary of Particular Bottling Plants in the 70's and not Coca Cola's actual anniversary. Just as you will see a lot of 50th Anniversary stuff from the 50's advertised as being from the 30's for Coke's actual 50th.

    yes rick, I know, but the date on this particular bottle says 1900-1975, so excuse me if what I said sounded like it was coca cola's anniversary and not nashville's coca cola bottling co.'s annivesary plus i still think the date is just a coinsidence.<----( i didn't spell that right.) for a mold number. Jeez, I think the people know what i mean.

    The "1" is the plant, the "13" is the mold, and the "74" is the date the bottle was made; naturally, it would be made a little before the 75th anniversary date. But that really should have been in 1977, since the company is supposed to have started in 1902. I guess the "FIRST BOTTLER'S CONTRACT' was actually 1900.... (??)
