    Odd Green Coke bottle

    I found an odd colored green hobbleskirt Coke bottle at the show this weekend. No embossing except on the base and no ACL lettering. I haven't seen this type before. I'm thinking possibly a paper label bottle or possibly a prototype. Came from Bill Agee's collection, I'm pretty sure not...

    Clear Coca Cola Hobbleskirt

    I think this has been discussed before but I don't remember the details. I found a clear glass Coke bottle dated 1944. I think these were used during WWII for servicemen overseas. Anyone familiar with these? Sodapopbob?
