    Selling Large Collection

    I recently acquired a large collection consisting of 100's of very nice antique bottles that I am beginning to sell on ebay. I am not an expert by any means and my passion has been antique beer cans so I will probably sell 99% of the bottles. The bottles are packed in several boxes so as I get time to unpack the boxes, take pictures, clean the bottles, etc., you can find them posted in my ebay store. So if anyone is interested, here is a link to our store where you will find many nice antique bottles for sale over the next several months. Here is just a very small sampling of some bottles that I have unpacked so far.

    https://ebay.to/2K49x5J

    We have many different types of bottles and each box has similar styles packed in each one. So you will see different types of bottles listed for sale as we open new boxes. If anyone sees us making a mistake by overpricing a bottle, or underpricing a bottle by a significant amount, I would appreciate your feedback. Again I am not an expert in this field. We do our best to research the value of each bottle listed but sometimes there is very little information available, or the information is not conclusive, or even contradicting in some cases.

    I hope this posting is approved and appropriate. If it isn't, please just let me know and I will correct it, or remove it. Thank you for your time!

    I have viewed your collection, and you have made my day! There are tons of nice hutches to choose from. I have a question about one I am interested in. The Hagerstown MD bottle: Has it been cleaned? Do you think its cleanable? Hagerstown has some important sentimental significance to me.

    Bottle Can Be Cleaned Better

    All we did was rinse that bottle out. The bottle can be cleaned however it might take some effort to get as clean as you want. Some of the spots are rust from the metal stopper inside the bottle. Also, without specialized cleaning methods, it may not come totally clean. Thanks

    I believe you have over-priced the MY Coca Co bottle to high. I have seen examples for $30, and excellent examples for around $50-$80.
