    Rare 1975 64 ounce Coca Cola Bottle

    I just got this today at a great price. It was made by Anchor Hocking in South Connellsville, PA for only a short amount of time because of high cost of production and the weight of the bottle. It is almost three pounds and is 13 inches tall. I wish I could find the cap that goes with it.

    Amber Coke in 1950's?

    I was wondering whether amber Coke bottles were actually produced in the 1950's. There's a person on Ebay selling some from various years and they have not disclosed whether it's an irradiated bottle or not. Seems a little fishy to me.

    1915 Coca Cola Error Bottle

    I was cleaning my 1915 Patent Coca Cola bottles when I found one with a mold error. The "9" in the 1915 date more closely resembles a "7" than a "9". There is no loop in the 9 , just a straight line across the top. I can't figure out how to load a photo on this new computer. Just wondering if...

    Coke in a creek

    On Friday I went to check out a local spot that was a bottle dump many years ago, and is known for mostly only producing shard fragments of bottles when I look there.

    First use of "hobble skirt" to describe Coca-Cola bottles?

    Does anyone have any idea/source for when the term "hobble skirt" was first used to describe Coca-Cola bottles?
