Not sure what u mean by mint because soda's were used /reused but all the power to ya if your waiting on factory mint bottles. A couple inconspicuous scratches or a flea bite here or there doesn't bother me if they look good in the window but I will accept some damage if they are rarer bottles. Some people lightly tumble decos but you can tell they were, once in hand. Inner tumbling a deco is all I would do if it were me and if the bottle was worth the effort. Some would say tumbling any deco soda is ridiculous but to each his own. Now on 1800's bottles there is a term called attic mint used by many collectors including myself of bottles with near mint characteristics and have never seen the ground. I probably have a few decos u would be interested in but if your stuck on flat out perfection we won't be dealing.
Every one of these, not rare, but like new.

I agree on the inside tumbling. That's where the haze is mostly.

I want a zero gravity display. They can just float
Here is one with a label that sold a while back on ebay, not sure if this was the regular label or just a part time thing Bon Ton did but its pretty cool.
Great graphics on that label. Not many remember Harold Teen, a discontinued American comic strip drawn by Carl Ed ran from 1919-1959. Other comics drawn by Carl Ed include Big Ben, Luke Mc Glook, The Bush league bearcat and The tener alley gang.
