What are collections?
I agree with Spriteboy, exceot I would place it a bit earlier in the range, probably 1905-10, and I think the value is a bit higher, up tp $250.00. It is a Root bottle, so if dated it will have a 9 or...
The pic shows clearly LGW 19. That is the earliest dated Laurens Coke bottle. The dated Tampa is indeed much rarer than the earlier undated one, or the later ABM.
While I'm at it- just a word on Hutch bottles. The Biedenharn Candy Co. Hutch is traditionally dated to 1894 and later. Some may be thet early, but note that many survivors are "ROOT" bottles which ca...
"LUM" = Lumberton, N.C. The abbreviation is also used on a scarce Hobble-skirt. Your flavor bottle is not valuable, as far as I know. The Fargo is pretty and would be sought after by "Deco" collectors...
That is the usual Hot Springs type. It is where the national park is, but I'm not sure off hand what that has to do with Lincoln. I have no idea of its "value." I wish there were catalogues for these ...
This bottle is from the Little Rock Coca-Cola bottling plant; it was not "made" there. Bottlers ordered bottles from various manufacturers. This one was made at a plant belonging to the "Owens-Illinoi...
Thanks, Glad the shelves are solid! I can send you a list of known applied top hobbles, I guess. I am oldcokes. Do you have my email? It is in my booklet - "The Coke Bottle Checklist" Can I giv...
Hey Kevin, Nice display and nice button. I'm not worried about the cord, or earthquakes, or kids, but I would worry about those glass shelves, bulging with bottles.... But you seem to be a pretty c...
More likely CCR is for "Coca-Cola" (Bottling Co.) Richmond. It is a flavor bottle (not for Coca-Cola) made by the Root Glass Co. of Terre Haute, Indiana in 1914.
This bottle is dated. Look to the right of "ROOT" on the heel. It is not a "Coke" but it is a Coca-Cola "Product" or Soda bottle. It is green probably because it was destined to hold a ginger drink. T...
This is a Graham Glass Co. bottle, probably 1913, (since no contents). I'm not sure which plant, but likely Loogootee or Evansville, Indiana. It is a great variety for Birmingham. (I hope I can find o...
This is indeed a Laurens mouth-blown bottle. (I happen to have several, and they are among my favorites!) It dates from 1917-1919, when Laurens finally got the machine. However, I have never seen or h...
I think these are original, and very scarce. It is true that some have turned up in some old bottling plant attics, so they are not as rare as they once were, but I don't know of any "repos" of this t...
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 197...
I should probably keep my mouth shut, but here goes anyway! The "7" is a mold #. The maker's initial (if any) is on the heel. (Look very closely). The bottle is a type made after 1912. The paper la...
