    Help dating an amber flask

    Leon, I just found a 6" flask identical to the last pic in your post . So, you are saying these date from the 1880s then?

    Date this Paper Label Pepsi?

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking, it does have the 40-ish label. Where's Soda Bob when we need him, lol?

    Date this Paper Label Pepsi?

    Picked this almost full Pepsi up at an estate sale recently. I know that "N" in a square is Obear-Nester Glass Co. but can anyone give me a date? couldn't find anything at the usual bottlemarks sites.

    Art Deco Superlative

    You certainly have an eye for cool bottles. And SO clean they glow!

    Got three of those Hutches, 2 have the stoppers still

    Cool! Wonder how an Indiana bottle got all the way to Md.?

    New bottle finds, what can you tell me

    Lots of Pepsi collectors out there. Many are former Coke collectors who got bored with Coke.

    ~~~ 1850's... Soda ~~~

    Even the STRONG embossing is exceptional!

    OK. Just a few more from the same dump.

    Man that beautiful Cobalt blue is something else!

    Searching an old gas station/country store and its privy.

    Don't forget the old deco soda bottles from that area too. Especially at a gas station.

    I remember that Tab tasted pretty bad.

    Found this on a hike today. It’s the oldest bottle I’ve ever found but I’m trying narrow down a date range

    Around 2005 I found a rare local hutch bottle just laying on the surface behind where an old house once stood. It was gone but some old outbuildings still stood. I still can't believe it happened and though I've probed the place to death I never found anything else like it.

    1984 Florida gators ACL Coke bottle

    They ARE cool, but the only drawback with full bottles is...the weight. Need strong shelves.

    Another fantastic Crush find!

    Yes that carton is the real prize. It looks about mint.

    Check Goodwills and garage sales. Also used mdse. stores.

    Killer day finding hospital bottles and much more!

    We always used Oxalic Acid/water mix. Oxalic acid is essentially wood bleach. You do have to keep an eye on them while soaking as to not over-do it.

    How old is this bottle please

    Well, in MY experience of using my 3-part Drano/Lye/Water MIX (note:MIX), since forever I've never had anything like that happen. Besides, the bottle is left open, so there is NO compression to begin with. Heck, I keep my mix in a glass jug and that has a plastic cap. No problems, ever, ever.

    How old is this bottle please

    But very nasty. The fumes alone corrode any shiny metal in the area very quickly. I accidently left a bottle in a container of it in my garage open and within a day it ruined most chrome in my garage including the exhaust tips on my car. Imagine what it can do to skin/lungs if an accident...

    How old is this bottle please

    Muriatic is nasty and not very effective. Pour a mix of draino/lye/water inside for a day and it'll rinse out clean. Then save the mix because, though it'll look dirty, it can be used over and over.
