View Full Version : Uncle Sam, Hitler, Tojo, & Mussolini Milk

I have a great looking patriotic milk bottle on the bay right now if interested. It ends this evening. This example was from the Gateway Creamery that was in Joplin, Mo. The building still stands, the tornado didn't take that path. It's been converted to a restuarant, and has been a couple of bars too. It's a pretty tough example to find. I bought a different one recently and have decided to sell one. I think it's one of the best patriotic war slogan milks out there myself. This one does have some light fading to the pyro on the Cream That Whips on the reverse side. There are two different versions of the war slogan cream tops from Gateway. The other one has Uncle Sam and a soldier on it. Here are some photos and a link to the auction for the one I have for sale. [:)]



Here are a couple I had in my collection and sold last year...



Here is an original token from the dairy...

That's nice!!. I guess it had to be in the 41-43 range but what was the date mark?

Hokey Smokes, Tim!

Here's hoping for an even bigger finish for you in the last 9 hours.

I never liked that Rat, Tojo. Mussolini neither.

Thanks guys [:)]

Eric, it's base marked with 41 so I would suppose that's correct.
