    Brandimist cola sign

    I googled brandimist and that bottle comes up as being from the late 20's > 30's , so I would imagine the sign is from same time period its weird they cut off the bottom , maybe it was damaged or store made a custom alteration to fit there display /building

    Bell drugs 52nd & chester ave

    its a good find if its a dug bottle , its not necessary easy to find embossed druggists although it depends on where you live and how many nearby druggists used embossed bottles vs paper labels my area seems to have been mostly paper labels on glass bottles so it be very rare to find a local...

    Brandimist cola sign

    you'd have to look into the history of this bottler as to when they used that specific bottle . that be the easiest way to get an idea of a time period when its from too bad its cut , that may hurt its value

    Bell drugs 52nd & chester ave

    i agree as its from a major city and not a pictoral druggist bottle I doubt its worth more than average . did you find it in a dump or buy it used like a yard sale / thrift store . if you didn't pay a lot for it you still did ok
