I collect a little of everything old. As a child, my mom always would show me something old and give it value, because it was old. Given that upbringing, I have a lot of old stuff, not necessarily valuable to anyone but me. I do enjoy the discovery, and hope to learn from all of you. Still hoping someone can recommend how to price this Peter Bub German Style beer bottle from 1937. I have not seen one in any of the area antique stores or others collections.

You can see if any have SOLD on ebay? Can give you a vague idea.

Other bottles from the brewery, but not this one have sold on EBay and other auctions. Most are paper labeled lager beer bottles and go for $7-14. Picnic size lager with paper labels go for $40. Saw one like mine in a collectors display 5 years ago. My mom picked a case of these in the 1970's. Gave each of my siblings one and sold the balance of her case to a collector around 1980. Am thinking it a short run due to WWII, and bad feelings for Germany. Maybe many were destroyed?

As far as I know this is a Steinie Bottle & a ACL Bottle. Not to many Acl Steinies. also a early Acl Steinie dating to 1937 as far as I can tell. Long before WW11. I'd have to assume they switched to Paper labels as I think the ACL was more exspensive. Probably short run. Just my opinion. others may vary? LEON.

I will be at a sale in the town of Winona where the old brewery is now an Antique Coop, (Closed in 1969) in 2 weeks.
Recommendations wanted.
Should I price it high ($100.) and take offers?

With nothing to compare it to with past sales I'd have no idea of value. But starting at $100 sounds like a good ideal to me. Or throw on ebay for $100 & see what happens. LEON.

I did sell the bottle recently to a local collector for $100. We are both satisfied.

Not even my main area of interest in antique bottles--I like the pre-1910, BIM stuff--but I liked the bottle's graphics and condition. Moreover, especially appreciate when a member posts followup information. Kudos! for doing so; and welcome to the forum.
