Hello, I am new to the page, and am a big local history collector to western and Piedmont NC bottles and Pepsi related items and one unanswered question of mine is what date is on my Bradhams medicine bottle. As many knows Caleb Bradham invented Pepsi in the back of his pharmacy in New Bern, NC around 1896. Does this bottle predate the founding of Pepsi or is it later than that?

The reinforced lip and style of pharmacy bottle dates this to 1905-1915 or so. It definitely does not pre-date Pepsi.
