You mean green as in 7-Up green or light green and with the WARD'S embossing?

I saw this in a price guide the other day. Seems to me that it was worth somewhere $20-40. Mine was from the 40's, and worth $5. -John

Hobbydigger,
Green Orange Crush bottles are nice and pretty scarce compared to the clear ones. In the old ads (1920's & 30's) they refer to this bottle as the "Krinkly Bottle", the bottle that Orange Crush Co. used almost exclusively during those years to bottle Orange Crush. I've collected Deco Sodas for the past 10 years, and I have 2 green ones, one in a lighter green (see picture) and the other in a deeper green from Norfolk Va. In nice condition I'd value them at about $50 - $100. You might want to check out my website at http://www.decosodas.com and go to the "Photos" section.
Happy Collecting!!

I hope to go to the Columbia, SC bottle show this year since I am in Augusta, GA, which is just over an hour away. I still trying to finish my inventoy here at school, so I still need to get to work on those pictures. Also, I need to call DigDuhg about looking at some bottles, and need to send something to Diggermeister (a bottle) just in case you guys are out there. I am so tired, but summer awaits me when I finish!!

Yes, I found a few embossed bottles (not many at all, though!). I found 3 Dr. Peppers(debossed, actually), and a Lime Cola Bottle (straight sided). Tomorrow I'll be finished with my reports and will be able to get some pictures up in a coule of days. I've also got some "Double Colas" that are embossed, but I am wondering if there was a paper label that is supposed to go on them. I did find a broken Pepsi embossed bottle from the 30's, but no more as of yet... Almost forgot, I've got 2 others: a "Five Points Bottle" with a star on it and a weird Nehi Bottling Company embossed bottle that has three letters on the top that are stacked kind of weird (don't remember what letters they are at this moment, though).
