    You can find out by putting it on e-bay, or better yet post it in the Soda section and take offers....Jim[;)]

    That style bottle was used from 1934-1950. The price quoted is correct. There are multiples of these bottles on ebay all the time from different towns. It would sell higher to someone that collects Minn bottles than to a Dr Pepper collector. Ebay would be your best bet for finding someone who wants it. They seldom bring over $10.

    painted labels would've phased this out by '40.i believe there was also one more embossed version after this with just the clock.despite it being a much older bottle,$10 is probably the high side.a number on the bottom to the right should date it 4 you(if it has one)
