It would be neat to find a SS amber coke from Oklahoma, there has never been one found or even made. Also would LOVE to find a "Big Bot'l" from Stigler, OK.(pictured) As far as Oklahoma collectors know there are only 2 known to exist. Its funny when a bottler ordered bottles to be filled they had to order at least a gross, thats 144 bottles. Makes ya wonder?

Mine would have to be the iron pontiled Soult & Zerbe Lewistown, PA soda. There are bottles out there worth 100X more monetarily, but none of them would give me the satisfaction of owning them that this bottle would. I know where at least eight Soult & Zerbe bottles live, and I'm sure that I will eventually come to own at least one, but that would be my first choice if I could have any bottle.

A close second would be a Mrs. F. Bossinger tall blob beer from Lewistown, followed by a Jacob Pabst porter from Patterson, PA.

Id have to go with Doug on the tippiecanoe...

but first would be the whole list of New London bottles... at the top an open pontil teal flask, then the cylinder... then the pony...

and of course Id really like to dig a "Russian oil of Ba...?"

I would flip over a Charter Oak too...

o-boy I'll stop there...

BOTTLE? BOTTLE??You mean any jar? Well in that case,we're talking a dark teal QT.size TRADE MARK LIGHTNING.Oh baby that jar would convert almost any bottle purest.
Actually,I was a pure bottle guy at one time,until I found my first colored fruit jar.So let this be a warning to all ; Stay away from colored fruit jars,they could become addicting

No Doug - Not a family bottle - Just a local iconic department store.

See the link for more than you may want to know.
Hess's/Hess Brothers stuff is a hot collectible in this area. My digging partner dug this in the dump we're still digging. He's never seen one before and hasn't found anyone else who has. He's been digging for at least 35 years.
He gave me a Patio ACL soda for my birthday. The Patio was the restaurant at Hess's. Famous for Strawberry Pie. My mom was cheap and I never got to try it.

Never saw the one you mentioned, but that sounds interesting as well! I love finding local stuff.

That is what I say when I hear bottle prices can't go any higher or thousands of dollars for a bottle is nuts. When you look at prices for coins & sports cards it makes the great historical flasks seem cheap.

Gunth, Absolutely, but how many of those can you dig? Or even have a real chance at finding?

Sidenote: If I had the dime, I would sell it and buy some bottles.....but thats just me.

You need to start thinking from the end, or it will always remain in the future. Visualize yourself finding the skull - hold it in your hands - how does it feel? Stick your thumbs in the eye sockets. Stare through the glass......

All I want is any historical or pictoral flask, 30 years of diggin and diving have produced many plain pint and quart flasks. 16 years ago I had to settle for finding a mint Dr. Swetts Panacea, Exeter NH in a river in New England while diving...As I've learned this bottle is on top of alot of other diggers lists, so these days I am not picky and much happier to have someone to dive and share recoveries with.

ps I still want a pontiled flask though!

I'd like a G.P. Morrill or an amber A.M. Cole - both druggists from Virginia City Nevada, or any one of the four sodas from Elko Nevada. There's an amber G.C. Thaxter from Carson City that would look sweet on my bottle wall as well....Ron
