    One of my favorite things to do while collecting is to take chance on a low cost mystery item. I've been burned a couple times, but mostly it's fun and I come away happy. Like with this 4"x6" mini crate.

    Listed as an "antique general store bottle cap collector" (is there such a thing?), I recognized that the stamped logo & handles, size, quality of workmanship, and patina screamed Old Coke. So for under $20 delivered I took a chance.

    Later I found it listed in Petretti's 10th. I tested it for size with 6 bottles from my 30's six-pack mini and they fit perfectly. Now the trick becomes finding 24 of these bottles to bring the crate back to full life.

    In the meantime, it holds tools of the trade.

      Don't know could be an antique drug store cap catcher? Nice find, you'll find the bottles. Always makes searching more fun.

      You're right bb2, I think I'll just enjoy it empty and not worry about the bottles.
