    Hello,
    I purchased this Tell City, Ind at the Indianapolis Bottle Club's first show. This is the first I've seen that city name is underlined where Chero-Cola normally is embossed.Around the base-
    6-1/2 FLU.OZ./PROPERTY OF CHERO COLA BOTTLING CO.
    Bottom
    THIS BOTTLE NEVER SOLD

    Mfg mark. 1828 EG 23

    RE: Proprietary Chero-Cola

    I've seen that before. I own a G&L Bottling Company bottle from Pocahontas VA which made me think that they were bottling Chero-Cola in Pocahontas, but in fact it was the Obbagy Brothers Bottling Company who was. It still remains a mystery to me why G&L used this particular style embossing on their bottles. Maybe it just one of the lesser used styles in the glassmaker catalog.

    It's actually embossed Chero Cola Bottling Co around the base
