    Straight side Coca Cola's: How many variants?

    Surfing through eBay, and on this site, I have noticed some variety in straight side cokes. There's a ring on the neck, some say Coca Cola Bottling Works, some are amber, some are clear, others aqua...

    There's shoulder script, mid script, heel script, some shoulder and heel script...

    And what's with the green Cokes?

    Were these designs specific to a certain year? Was it to differentiate between flavors? Am I just a crazy newbie?

    I would love to try to explain this own my own but would probably get something wrong. So luckily there is this great website.

    It should tell you everything you wanted to know. I personally found my first straight-sided Coke a few months ago. It has the script on the shoulder. https://www.antique-bottles.net/show...424#post711424

    This link is to the most advanced article I am aware of regarding early Coca Cola bottle. It was primarily compiled by Bill Porter and Bill Lockhart. The number 1186 is most likely a Style/Series/Model/Catalog Number used by D.O.C.

    I read this and have it printed out. It is a well done article.
