Thanks again. This is a milk bottle that many collectors never see.
Thanks for the comment. Did you scroll back & see the two color version of this picture? The two color one is one of my favorites.
Thanks Newfld.....I'm amazed at all the different war slogans that existed. It is always fun to find a war picture on a milk bottle that you've never seen before.
Thank you for the comment. Collecting hard to find milk bottles has been very enjoyable. The continual search for another one and the people you meet makes it worthwhile.
Yes, cop the cream milk bottles have a face on the top bulb of them. Baby top milk bottles were first introduced in the mid 1930s & these "cop the creams" hit the dairy market shortly afterwards as th...

Hi Bobby....Your 1/2 pint from Sanitary Dairy is a nice looking bottle. I collect the ones with war slogans mainly in the quart sizes from Sanitary Dairy. This dairy used such colorful red/blue pictur...

Thank you for comment,,stuff. I thought it was a first baseman's mitt too.
Thanks babytopking for the Larry's Dairy information. Do you have any duplicate baby tops or cop the creams? Have you seen many of these Larry's Dairy baby tops? This is the first one I have seen.
trish.....This Miller Yarling Dairy milk bottle was called a CREAM SEPERATOR style. Notice how the back side of the bottle has a section "cut out". These bottles are also called "DENT" milk bottles. T...

Thanks kwqd. Some people have no appreciation for collectibles.
Thanks Manikin...I hate to see advertising items just tossed away.
Thanks Newfld.......This piece wasn't even pictured in the pre-auction pictures & was a pleasant surprise when I arrived.
Thank you fhrjr2
Vynil….the bottles are headed your way.... :)
Thank you for the comments. I was pleasantly surprised when this bottle arrived. It looks good displayed with my other Pearl Harbor milk bottle examples.
Thank you...they are fun to collect.
It looks like I guessed wrong on cap dates. Learn something new everyday.
Thanks for posting these pictures..Vynil. I have seen pictures for these types of milk bottle hoods from early 1920's advertisements. I have not researched their exact start for use on milk bottles. ...
Thanks....they have been fun to collect....many colorful pictures
Thanks for your interest Ray, but I'm probably keeping them for now. You should check ebay for pinewood derby cars for sale. There are numerous ones for sale currently.

Thank you. They are a fun area of milk bottle collecting. I will be posting more pictures as time allows.

Very true....these color sample milk bottles are not common. There are round examples that are older & even more rare than these.
Thanks for the comments. I couldn't remember what some of the patches represented. I was pleased it survived these years.
keramikos...the three digit phone number dated your milk bottle as an earlier embossed one....it sounds like a cool bottle.
Thanks for the comments.
Thanks for the comments. I thought it was a good buy for $5.00
Thanks....I fill mine with very small styrofoam beads that give the appearance of milk inside the bottle.
It is amazing what we've found at these Goodwill Outlet Centers. Thanks for the comments.
