    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
