Looking Mint Cola bottles guys....

Looking for Mint Cola bottles of cities I don't have.  Have 7 different towns right now with one being a slugplate.  If anyone has any they want to part with shoot me a PM.  Also looking for Mint Cola advertisements.
 
Hate to put a wanted ad on the soda board but I'd probably get more of a response here than the bottles wanted/for sale forum.

    I have a no-city Mint Cola dug in Mississippi. I remember there is an embossed one from New Orleans. I also have a nice Mint Cola newspaper ad from Augusta GA. I saw a Norton VA Mint Cola on ebay not long ago.

    I'm looking for Celery=Cola bottles from Charlotte, Henderson, and Spray NC. Also need a Celio-Cola from Walnut Cove NC.

    I emailed you directly but it was rejected.

    Here's a pic of the Mint Cola No city. There is a blank slug plate at the rear heel. It is machine made and pretty nice condition. I sell the bottle prints for $10 each at shows. If you want two prints, the original newspaper ad, and the bottle I would sell for $50 shipped Paypal or check/mo.

    Although I don't see many of the light green Mint Cola bottles from Maysville, the amber one is considered the rarer of the two.  A nice one usually goes anywhere from $75-$100. 
     
    Maysville is the birthplace of Mint Cola.  A few years after it expanded to Salsbury, NC,  Mint Cola went bankrupt but continued to sell under that name into the 30's.  It was there that the owner added cherry and other flavors to Mint Cola and developed Cheerwine.  They ceased producing Mint Cola because of the Great Depression and continued with Cheerwine because it was the more popular of the two.
