was at an antique mall in a nearby city the other day and a vendor actually had some cans for sale at reasonable prices , wasn't much interesting .
but found a honeydew can in the mix , for orange flavour , French side is nicer than English but in reasonably good shape
went back to that wood lot where I found the Fanta cans last week , found more stuff further back , some of the cans were on the ground , others on a rocky hillside area
not many bottles - juice bottle , broken glass jar , clear no deposit no embossing , small screwtop druggist bottle , broken...
I finally went swimming yesterday , been warm here for a while but I just hadn't made it in yet
only found 1 bottle a 51 coca cola hobbleskirt
did see 1 small turtle , maybe a painted turtle it swam away from me after I jumped off the dock , I could see it underwater
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
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...
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
found an interesting shard down by the river the other day , for simcoe dry ginger ale ( features the map portion of acl ) , is a local ginger ale from Orillia Ontario from the 50's - 60's
have this bottle already , it was also found locally , parents found it in a heavily wooded area on our...
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
I found these the other day , pretty glad at the time that I had found them as I had never found any early flat top Fanta cans from 60's before and these 2 still have a lot of colour and 2 different flavours orange and grape
these cans say " riddle on inside bottom of can " on top and product...
