1915 Coke looking for some info

I found this 1915 Coke on a construction site in downtown Pueblo a couple years ago. So far I haven't been able to find another like it and was wondering if anyone had. I can't imagine it's the only one in existence. It's embossed "PUEBLO" on the bottom, I've seen others with "PUEBLO COLO" but never one without the state....

There are 2 Pueblo listed in Porter, one with and one without COLO. Both (15) are R+ as of fourth edition.

Well rare + is a good thing, I had a feeling it wouldn't be a common bottle since I haven't found another like it anywhere in town
Really nice bottle. Several, mostly Western, cities have both bottles. Wonder why.

That's strange, I would assume the city only bottles are slightly earlier maybe? I can't think of why that would be though. There's another local Coke I've seen that is embossed "DENVER-PUEBLO" as well, I've only seen it online though.

Wow! Very nice looking
I guess it's a ferly rare bottle.In my opinion the name PUEBLO was changed to for example PUEBLO COLO (or other) in order to accurate. Then no one else embossed that old name.
As long I know that bottle was designed in Nov 1915 and began to be made in 1917.
