Hey im kevin this is my first post to the site. I am a avid scuba diver located in southport NC and I found a Christo Cola from wilmington this summer. I am trying to find out the value and more on the bottle. It is onion shaped and a beautiful bottle. Thanks

Welcome to the site, I see these bottles on E-Bay with asking prices from $50-115 but without bidders or buyers. We have a member here by the name of Chris whose username in wilmingtonbottleboys and he collects bottles from that area. He can best tell you the value and may even want to purchase the bottle.

If you click on member list at the top of the page and type in his name you will get his profile page and you can send him an e-mail and a pm about the bottle, and again welcome....Jim

Thanks Jim. I saw the one on ebay but none from the wilmington area. Somewhere on google i ran across something about the wilmington ones being worth a good bit more than the others from gastonia and VA. And thanks again, Im sure me and chris will have lots to talk about, i have found a good bit of nice bottles this past year to add to my collection with some nice wilmington bottles in the mix. Thanks again Jim.

Nice looking bottle, a bit of help on pic's if I may....Try to put the bottle on a window sill so it's backlit with natural light and it will help highlight the embossing....Jim
