    If You Have Seen One Embossed Coke Bottle, You've Seen Them All...........

    Uncle_Jarvis, nothing to add to the earlier information except that the information about the origin of the bottle at CC Atlanta appears to hold true sans any disputes to the contrary. Would love to see a photo of your example, and if possible, the base and date / mold code numbers from the...

    Embossed Coca Cola in rich 7-up Green ?

    This embossed 7-up green Coca Cola continues to stump all of the Coke collectors who have seen it in hand. It is absolutely genuine and has been tested for dye colorization with razor test, acetone and acid testing, etc. and shows no indication of being nuked, heated, or artificially colored...

    Earliest Style of Pontil Scars on Black Glass ?????

    I found an old file of information along with mention of what I was looking for on one of the bottle description pages at Cosbert.com talking about pontil scar styles prior to later Shaft and Globe and onion forms. While it has been generally believed that the earliest forms of English black...

    Earliest Style of Pontil Scars on Black Glass ?????

    Somewhere over the past few years, I read information discussing the earliest pontil scar styles on black glass going back to circa 1630-1680 or so. It was something about the differences between the sand pontils used in the production of early English onion bottles and the pontils used in even...

    Odd Green Coke bottle

    Yes, that is certainly another possibility. Being from Oklahoma and Texas, they may have been something made only for that local territory. Sent you a PM through eBay.......

    Odd Green Coke bottle

    Nice "lime green" color. Possibly a paper lable ? Kinda reminds me of the no deposit-no return bottles. Date code puts it at 1979 production. Have you checked for dye-stain using concentrated acetone or a strong paint remover, and a "peel test" using a sharp exacto or razor blade ? If they...

    If You Have Seen One Embossed Coke Bottle, You've Seen Them All...........

    Uncle_Jarvis, I would tend to agree with your thoughts as to the origination of the bottle. If its history is accurate, and it did in fact come from within Coca Cola Atlanta, I think that would tend to confirm it being a color sample or prototype bottle rather than a third shift bottle. Still...

    If You Have Seen One Embossed Coke Bottle, You've Seen Them All...........

    Those Pittston Pa ACLs are relatively common compared to the embossed. The Pittston greens were a regular production run, while the embossed never was in that color. Comparing apples to oranges. We did several tests on the bottle, including full strength acetone and a strong paint remover and...

    If You Have Seen One Embossed Coke Bottle, You've Seen Them All...........

    ........But now and then, something comes along that totally dashes your former beliefs. Here is a 6 1/2 ounce 1962 embossed Coca Cola that few have ever had the opportunity to see. Absolutely genuine, not dyed or stained, and some very knowledgeable in the hobby say it is the only one they...
