    Here are 2 milk bottle caps that I have found from my uncles dairy. These are marked Albuquerque NM. They also were in Lubbock Tx.
    Not sure of the date of these. The dairy was in operation from 1925-1950. I believe the larger cap is from a half gallon or gallon and the smaller one may be a quart. It fits the quart jug that I have.
    They are cardboard I believe

      I think the dairy in Albuquerque was open longer than 1950 - because I remember walking to the dairy to buy milk (and watching the milk go through all the pipes on it's way to being processed and bottled) - and I wasn't born til 1969. It's crazy how much Albuquerque has changed - but these bottle tops brought back some very happy memories for me. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks justjonna. The dairy in Albuquerque may have been open longer. I thought my great uncle had closed it sooner. Ill have to check on that. Glad they were able to give you some happy memories

      trgrubaugh, I am happy to have found this post. I found a miniature McILhaney milk bottle at an estate sale and was googling to find out exactly what type of bottle it was. It was to small to be a milk bottle. It must have been advertisement.
      Thank you for your post. The post was several year ago, so I hope you get this message.

      thanks Tammb. I would love to see a pic of it, I haven't ever seen a miniature bottle. I also have a quart size bottle posted,
