This bottle is from around 1902 and I’ve only ever seen this bottle in 2 other places, one on eBay where it sold for $20 (personally I think it is worth much more)
And one on google that doesn’t look as old.
The reason I think this bottle is so rare is because most of the bottling in this area was done in temple which was a much bigger town at the time2972685D-94C7-4125-BC07-5425CF7D3DD2.jpeg

Belton had a surprising number of bottles, including 4 hutch soda variations from two bottlers. Keep an eye out for the M. Menton hutch with the rooster on it; that is one of Texas' best hutch sodas with respect to value.

My bottle hunting location is a massive old town dump used between belton and temple so I bet there’s one in there

I only have photos of two Belton crown top bottles but I know there are at least 4 types out there. I've attached the two I'm aware of. The Bloomer is a Bimal while the Belton Ice is an ABM. There are two more that are embossed BELTON ICE &/ELECTRIC CO/7 OZ. NET/BELTON, TEX. (ABM) AND BELTON ICE & ELECTRIC CO./BELTON,TEXAS. (BIMAL)

LEON posted the best source to view the hutches from Belton.
