    Mountain Dew...how old and are they worth anything?

    Bought these yesterday as well as two cokes (not pictured) for 3.00. Wondering if these are old and how old they are? The two on the right are identical as far as the labels are concerned. The one in the middle is slightly different from those and the two on the left are identical as well. If anyone wants a different view of the labels let me know?

    Those are all great bottles. The one that has Yahoo on it is the oldest, then the other two hillbilly bottles and last the two word labeled ones. They range from the late 1950s to the early 1970s

    Geez that makes me feel old.LOL

    RE: Mountain Dew...how old and are they worth anything?

    Thanks. Lol, dont feel old. Everything is old to me if it came from before I was born, I'm only 23. I didnt think the bottles were that old since I believe Mountain Dew started in the 40's. Maybe in another 50 years or so they will be a rare a desirable bottle. The labels are perfect and the bottles are as well. They look nice on my dresser for now though. [:)]

    You don't have to wait, those are already collectibles and look great for the price you paid for them.
    If any of those on the left have an inscription "bottled by Jim and _____". Then that makes them even more collectible. I don't have any of those with the "Bottled by ____(usually two names), but I think you find that around the base of the bottle possibly on the reverse side.

    RE: Mountain Dew...how old and are they worth anything?

    Hey-I think all of your Mt Dew are worth some, due to being in good condition. The bottle in the middle has the 'laughing pig', which makes it worth a little more than the other two bottles with pigs. They are the more common style of the standing pig.
    I collect all ACL styles of different brands and have some of the 'newer' styles like the first two you have and older ones. I like to see how they evolve and change the graphics. Even the new style is probably over 20 years old already. They will increase in value. It isn't as easy to find them like it was 10 years ago.
    What kind of Coke bottles did you get? Can you post a pic of them? That is mostly what I collect.

    Here are the two cokes (It's a bad picture). I dont think either are old. I'm pretty sure the small one is recent and I'm not sure about the other one. It's pretty big though. Thanks for the information on the mountain dew bottles. I appreciate it. [:)]

    Also, I checked and the back of the bottles dont say that they were bottled by any body. [&o] That would have been cool. Ah well.
