    Once you have let it soak in whatever substance you decide on using, put some rice into the bottle and shake it aggressively for about 5-10 minutes. Rice will get to almost every spot inside if you...

    Be very careful with stepping on anything. Any bottles broken might be regretted later. Wear sturdy steel toed boots that glass shards will not go through. Bring some sort of soft packing material or...

    Looks very similar in size and style to the plastic 1.25 Liter bottles now used by Pepsi and Mountain Dew.

    Being from PA I think I know what you mean. Personally don't care for that coal muck too much. It's very hard to get anything clean after being in that!

    Very cool bottles and probably very rare. Looks about 1890's-ish.

    Use USPS flat rate boxes whenever possible. They eliminate a lot of guesswork, stress, and headaches and you don't get hit with an unforeseen high cost to ship something.

    That diamond pattern is really nice. I don't know what makes people think that bottles look better painted!

    Thanks for your messages guys. Those dates are helpful. Yes, maybe that is what registered meant. Probably meant it was a quality product that could be trusted. Or had to do with the trademark also.

    Very nice! I wasn't aware of either of those brands.

    Don't do it until you get their permission. Trust me it's not worth it otherwise. Find a No Trespassing sign and call whatever number is on it. Those hunting clubs usually don't mess around.

    Nice new addition to your collection. Lots of bottles on Ebay go without bids or only get one bid anymore. I want to say it's a buyer's market but shipping fees are painful!

    Seeing the bottom of one of them would be helpful but they have a 1960's look to them with that design and embossing. NDNR bottles were a thing in the 1960's and 1970's.

    That is an excellent looking bottle! There's a clear one on Ebay selling for $45.00 in average condition so I'd say you got a great deal on it.

    Nice collection there! A six pack of Coke was quite a bargain back in the day, apparently.
  22. Question about "REGISTERED" embossing

    What year did bottles start to have the word "REGISTERED" embossed on them? Was there a law regarding this, which made the bottle makers start putting it on bottles?

    I'm thinking more 1880's to 1890's. It has the exact same style as a Chamberlain's Cough Remedy bottle.

    So that's what that color is called. I just thought it was a version of cobalt. This seems to be the same blue as Phillips Milk of Magnesia bottles.

    Things could change but as of right now collectors enjoy items that are "survivors" and don't want them repainted, reconditioned, or preserved with clear coat. I say try to clean them enough to get...
