So I ventured over to my mothers shed this morning for a look see and came across some nice milk bottles that I have a couple questions about. Mainly about one I found that had the embossed letters painted red white (silver) and blue. I can't tell if this was original to the bottle or if it was added later by somebody. I was kind of looking for any info and maybe an idea of value of these bottles. Thanks

The letters were colored later on by someone trying to highlight the embossing. Looks to me like they set out to do all the letters,found out it was a little more trouble than anticipated,and abandoned the project. Either that or all were once painted and some of the paint has been removed.

Yes I am inclined to agree. The letters that haven't been scuffed are really well done. Like no paint got on the bottle its all on the lettering and uniform. Cool milk nonetheless. Thanks
