didn't take long to clean as they weren't that dirty , found another 30's hobbleskirt from 37 .

but the big find of the day was a complete shocker , knew I had pulled out a coca cola bottle due to its shape but when I realised what coca cola bottle I had found . just about didn't believe my eyes and wanted to dance on the dock but were some boats around so decided not to.

its an aqua blue in colour and has " trade mark registered " and " bottle pat 'd Nov 16 1915 " on front
on back " trade mark registered " and Min contents 6 fl ozs .
has some obvious condition issues , such as damaged to top lip of the bottle and some wear and other marks but very old coca cola bottle for this area

there is a 6 on the lower bottom area , didn't see any other numbers on it . its got a nice colour to it . most coca cola bottles are clear

not that familiar with the early hobble skirts , how rare is this bottle compared to other coca cola bottles ? I was pretty surprised when I realised what I had just pulled out of the lake .

a pic of it in the window , looks a bit different , has some weird marks in the bottle , wonder if the severe winters caused them ? have found other really old bottles in lakes with same marks before

That's a fantastic find! It's odd that those always seem to be damaged, but I think it may be because of the poor quality of the glass they used. There's a certain type of generic soda bottle from around the same era, a clear 10oz, which also has those inner cracks and a bunch of chips whenver I see a dug example.
