I'm looking for some help about a few bottles I have and maybe values. 1962 Old Milwaukee stubby, Schweppes Ginger Ale 10.6 oz, Calgary Beer and Bohemian. The Calgary and Bohemian beers, I know where they were brewed but don't don't see any pictures of them anywhere on the web. Thoughts?? I appreciate the interest!

PS...a wasp somehow managed to get in the Schweppes bottle before it was capped!!

The problem with unopened bottles is... anyone with an empty bottle and a bottle cap can turn an empty bottle into a full bottle; including one with a wasp! :-D

Maybe a couple of dollars each, the stubby may be a bit better... Full bottles like this have no more collector value than empties.... Welcome to the forum... Jim

Hah! My parents bought this as is at the store, probably before I was born! They kept it just because of the wasp. I'm not that ambitious to make a dollar or two:) To say the least, I've had these in my china cabinet for years and have zero knowledge about bottles, but thanks for the insight, i appreciate it. I realize now, full or empty doesn't mean a thing. My Dad has always had a tendency to squirrel brand new things away. Thanks for the welcomes on my first day!
