    Please ID Jelly Jar (?)

    with the threads on it , it wasn't meant as a drinking glass. it looks like it could be anything from a jelly jar to peanut butter or pickle jar. the jelly jars that were used as glasses had pry off lids with a slightly thicker edges at the top instead of threads. they came in 2 sizes.

    Brick structures in woods

    i have seen similar structures around here except made of concrete. they're parts of the sewer system. judging by the sewer pipes around that one i would say they're older versions of the same thing. just a guess

    Styrofoam label pop bottles

    they wouldn't have much value right now, i feel they will go up in value in the future. they appear to be in pretty good shape. they were made to be thrown away so not a lot are still around. one of the past times back then was seeing how long a strip you could peel off the bottle. i know we...

    ebay soda scam.

    i no very little about 7up history but it looks suspicious to me. the bottle looks like a blob top and the bottom looks like a wine bottle which doesn't jive with the date given. just my 2 cents.

    3 Centa Bottle Expertise Needed

    the LCW should read LGW, which stands for Laurens Glass Works. the 3 should be the date code but i don't remember them. you can look up glass markers marks for LGW and that should tell you how to read them.
