    Pre 1910 Bludwine Style Coca Cola Bottle from Tuskegee Alabama. This particular bottle has a light purplish color and is in really nice condition. The guy that sold me this bottle was not 100% ready to part with it, Boy does that sound familiar. Anyway just wanted to share my latest and 2nd greatest coke bottle to date. Guess why I kind of fell in love with this one was the Jack Daniels style bottle. You guys, gals are all great, hope everyone made it through the holidays well and are off to a great new year!

      Awesome bottle, Dave! I can see why you are so happy being its owner now. My coca- cola bottle collection would make you laugh :-))

      Hey Anna
      Im sure you have a nice collection. Ive been working on mine for, hmm how long have I been collecting. Probably 25 or so years. This was only the 2nd time I had seen this type of bottle period and I pounced, lol. Hope your New Years went well.

      Well, i may just post my collection of coca-colas, too, since there's no "LOL" button here :-) I am not really a coca-cola bottle collector, they seem to find me, so i keep them. I'm a bottle hoarder!

      What makes you think it's pre-1910? This style continued into the 1940s as Budwine. Manganese, which lets glass go purple albeit it was put in to decolourise it originally, was used often till 1918-1920.

      Heya SpiritBear
      The top is applied, making it the older version. As the machines took over in I can't remember but 1909-1910 seems to be popping into my head

      Howdy again, Mr. Coca-Cola.
      Applied tops went out in America by 1895 in 98% of cases. Tooled tops began happening by the late 1860s as standards. Tooled continue on these crown-tops, which were first created in 1891 (not taking off till about 1900,) until about 1920 (medicines were tooled into the 1920s, often.) Machine-made bottles are typically 1910 (more often, 1915) on, but my newest tooled-crown is dated to 1918 (It was celebrating 45 years in one location, so I looked at when it began and added 45 to get that date.) My earliest machine-made crown is around 1912 (date-codes,) if I recall (some bottles were machine-made around 1900, but those were types of jars, which are bottles, but not crown-tops like these.)
      I've been studying Southern bottles lately, too, and have noticed that they were behind in advancements when compared to the North (I guess the War had some extremely long lasting effects.)
      My guess is 1905 (the crown-top rapidly began to take off then) to 1915 (tooled bottles began to decline rapidly.)

      A plethora of information Mr SpiritBear!
      I wish I had some kind of memory like you do, I will assume there is some validity to the long lasting effects of the usage of MJ as a teenager. Always nice to have some more information written down for me to pour over when I have a doubt. Hope all's been going well my friend.

      I've been studying bottles for 3 years. Seeing the same thing over and over again with empirical evidence and research leads to conclusions that are usually constant.
