    Does anyone collect CBs or do any of these bottles have any value ?

    I am new to bottle collecting. I got into it after finding bottles diving. My GF "thrifts" often and we check out yard sales and antique shops. I have done some research into bottle dating and replicas, but I am just learning. My GF will buy "cheap" bottles whenever she finds them and she gives them to me. Unfortunately most of the bottles she comes home with are replicas or newer bottles. Thus, I now have a collection of 8 CB replicas.

    They do look cool and make my small collection look more impressive from a distance. I know that they are CBs and I don't know what to do with them. Do they have any value? Did CB close in 1999? Does anyone collect them?

    The CB marked bases are later, 50's I think but I'd have to double check that. The early types of some do quite well and are collected by some people.

    Those two are later and not really replicas. They are called commemorative and would be of interest mostly local or other specific interests depending on what they depict.
