    Thanks again Eric! I did see that but it's not available as a "reply" option. Looks like l have to start a separate thread. Hopefully l will get some time to figure it out. Someone offered to purchase the bottle but l want to get some feedback before l make a mistake.

    Does anyone have an idea of value on this piece. Eric was kind enough to send along a local newspaper article for the gentleman's obituary. I'm guessing that puts this bottle around the mid to late 1930's. Possibly earlier. Attachment 170634

    Looks like it is scuffed up pretty good? It appears to be a hard to find bottle, but I'm not sure the demand is there. The market for these embossed 1930's sodas seems very soft. I'd say $20 is fair.

    Overall a nice collectible bottle but I agree that those vintage soda bottles are not selling well. I've tried several and got little response. You might be able to generate quite a collection of these at a reasonable price.

    I was interested enough to do some searching but got the rude awakening that it was time to go to work. Anyway I found a few things that may help. In the 1925 bottlers encyclopedia John H Stock was listed there. I did that and got places like researching Electric City Bottling works. Apparently that came first, HERE
    The C22 may be the year of making but I'm not sure if that was something Reed Glass did (R in triangle). The year may not align because he may have been just a partner in the company before he bought it. That's just speculation.
