    Thanks Leon. I will check out some of the 23 Pat bottles to see if any have the LGW and date.

    Along the same lines, someone told me that the 1915s weren't used until 1919.

    Just for the record ...

    This is the earliest advertisement I am aware of for the new Coca Cola contour/hobbleskirt bottle from ...

    [ The Statesville Sentinel ~ Statesville, North Carolina ~ August 20, 1917 ]

    Footnote:

    ROOT started dating their bottles in 1909 and almost without exception every ROOT bottle from 1909 on has a double-digit date on it

    Interestingly ...

    This ad is by the same bottler from the same newspaper as the last one I posted. But its dated two weeks earlier and depicts a straight-sided paper label bottle - suggesting that the new contour bottle was introduced by the Statesville Coca Cola Bottling Company sometime within that two week time period
