    Straight Sided Coca Cola Question - Conyers Georgia

    This was a recent attic find. I can't seem to find another example anywhere. Is anyone familiar with this one?

    Although it looks like one, that is not a Coca Cola bottle. It is a bottle used by a private company with Coca Cola's permission. It didn't contain Coca Cola, but rather another drink. If the Coca Cola logo was script, it would have contained Coca Cola, and therefore would have been worth more. It's a cool bottle none the less! I'd be happy with that find!

    Thanks Screwtop, that's some great information! No wonder I couldn't find another example; I was searching for a straight sided Coca Cola bottle.

    Here's a link to a 1915 reference to the Coca Cola Bottling Co in Conyers, GA. Your bottle likely dates to around that time. Nice bottle!

    That's a pretty unusual flavour bottle, I can't remember seeing another one that early. Never seen one with the town name in such big letters either.

    Nice! I've got a Fort Valley, Georgia example like yours.
