    Rare Dr Pepper Bottle?

    I recently purchased this at an antique mall and it is a 6 1/2 oz dr pepper bottle. It has the clock on the back that is pointing to 10, 2, and 4 which i believe is debossed. The Dr Pepper Good For Life on the front is embossed. Under that where a city would have gone is the number "43" and the number "1." (Maybe from 1943?) The city and state are on the bottom and it reads "Springfield, Ohio" with "Ball" written in cursive. I'm not really sure exactly what this bottle is but I think it might be a transition bottle of some sort. Any info at all would be much appreciated.

    Just a plain clear DEBOSSED Dr Pepper bottle from the 40's in good condition.They were from approx 1934-37 to 1950, same style all the way thru.
    From approx 1925-7 or so they were all EMBOSSED bottles with the town/states name on the heel, and Dr Pepper either in block letters or script on the bottom.
    When you run your fingernail over the letters Dr Pepper, if an EMBOSSED bottle, it will rise up, if DEBOSSED, your fingernail will fall into a cut groove in the letters.

    Gotcha, figured out that mine is debossed. I know we are talking in two different forums so lets just stick to this one to keep everything organized [:D][:D][:D]. Whats the value and rarity? I bought this for $10. Rip off? Fair price? Great price?

    If anybody is interested, Marshall McMasters is listing an embossed "Dr Pepper Good For Life" bottle with Winston Salem slug plate on his website. I asked and he said he has no photo and that it's ABM. I don't buy ABM bottles, but thought it odd that it would have the city in a slug plate.
    Of course, without a photo, it's difficult to tell if it is actually a debossed bottle that he is misrepresenting.

    Debased Dr Peppers are very common. $1 - 10 depending on town. Embossed are $15 up.

    I have a "Good For Life" Dr pepper bottle that has Shreveport LA in block on the bottom and Dr Pepper in script on the base.
