This is a work in progress which I will be adding to as time goes by. I encourage contributions because my collection of Big Chief's is limited and I will need help from other members to fill in a lot of gaps, especially with the non-acl embossed Big Chief's which I do not have as I currently only collect the acls. The primary focus of this thread will be to try and determine and show pictures of the earliest (and possibly first ever) Big Chief bottle as well as the latest (and possibly last) one ever produced. Pictures from any source, including eBay, etc; are totally welcomed just as long as there is a date associated with it that will allow us to establish a production date. To my knowledge there has never been an extensive study about Big Chief's and with as many members as possible contributing to this thread, it could turn out to be fun as well as the "go-to" site for Big Chief collectors and enthusiast. So if you have a Big Chief bottle you'd like to share with the world, (embossed or acl) please post a picture of it and tell us ... 1. Where it was produced?2. When it was produced?3. Which glass company made it? The majority (if not all of them) should be marked with "Coca Cola Company." But a non-Coca Cola would be of particular interest (if one even exist). All of mine are Coca Cola's. Don't worry about trying to keep them in any form of a chronological date order, we'll figure that out later. I hope this turns out to be a fun thread - all members are invited to participate. I'll start things off with ... 1. Bottle ~ Mason City, Iowa ~ Owens-Illinois ~ Duraglas ~ 7 <(I)> 53 (1953)2. Newspaper article ~ The Mason City Globe-Gazette ~ Iowa ~ April 28, 1931 (I will be posting as many Big Chief articles and ads as I can find)
I have this art deco style Big Chief soda. excellent condition, not a dug bottle, yours for postage.

Brand new to bottle collecting so forgive me having no clue... I bought a few bottles at an estate sale last weekend and I'm curious about the date this was produced and value of it if that's possible on this...I haven't cleaned it up any but it seems to be in good condition, or at least I think so. Haha One small chip on the base (see pic), what grade would this bottle be so I know for the future?

Big chief 6.5 oz bottle, Santa Maria, I guess California ?

The numbers on the bottom of the bottle how do I decipher those?
