My modest Mint Cola collection....

Here are a few pics of my Mint Cola collection.  26 bottles and counting so far.  Don't have time to name all the towns right now because I have to do a few things before I go to the hospital for a sleep study tonight.  States range from NC, SC, GA, KY, VA and LA.  Most have the same bottle design but they come in lots of different variations.

A little different from the rest...
 

 
Some of the first Mint Cola bottles...
 

 
My favorite and rarest one I have.  From my huge hometown and current place of residence Macclesfield, NC....population of about 300 people.
 

 
Hope you enjoy!  Always looking for more towns I don't have also!

    I would say your venture is not modest.  But considerable.
    And wonderful to behold.  Superior job!  Thank  you.
    A feast to purview.

    Hey Dustin,

    Nice collection, sir. What glass houses were involved in making those?

    Good luck sleeping at the hospital.

    I will add to your list when I find time to go through what I have boxed up, maybe 65-70 bottles. Made by many different glass houses. Great thread. RK

    From information provided by yourself, Morb, and others on top of my own notes compiled over many years. I'm sure more towns can be added to the list.

    Good stuff, I think that wire takes away from the look of you nice collection. Have you consider a small 1/4 round molding on the front of the shelves, sorry to be critical....A litle glue and a couple of brads and you have a nice safe shelf front...Jim

Here goes: Asheville, NC-Albemarle, NC- Mount Airy, NC-Morganton, NC-Gastonia, NC-Mooresville, NC-Washington, NC-Blackville, SC-Branchville, SC. That's all for now. Maybe I can locate the other box. Yes, ncbred, I have the Aulander, NC. See Ya! RK

    Does anyone have an example of a Darlington, SC Mint Cola bottle? I've been searching for one but have never seen one. Anyone have one they are willing to sell or trade?

    Has anyone on here every actually drank Mint Cola. It sounds like something I might like.

    I know there was a Mint Cola in Stanton KY. And I recently saw a bottle from Lancaster KY, I think......at least I was in Lancaster KY when I saw it
