Hey yall,

I found this 6 pack at an estate sale and been trying to figure out a date and whether they are worth anything. All of the bottles have different cities on them and I can’t find any dates anywhere. Just the patent date on the bottle. Any help is appreciate, thanks!

Cool find! Have you scrutinized the card stock carrier? There might be a printing date on it. There are plenty of Coca Cola persons in the forum that have your answers! Good luck and thanks for sharing this!
I actually have some limited edition cokes full with clean vvnm pyro glaze labels... I wonder if I should snap some pics and post them here...

Are they not from the 1980's? Back around when "new Coke" came out and "Classic" was used to identify the original recipe. I'm basing this on the caps and case, more so than the bottles

Yeah these are from the 80s or 90s. I don't think these recent glass Coke bottles are that collectible but I'm not sure about that.

I got one too. It is 1989. Classic Commemorative Christmas 6-pack. Value less than $15 full unopened.

HELLO Tree Guy Fred,
Your pictured coke bottles date before 1960.On your bottles look to the bottom of the bottle before 1960 they only used large print for the cities.On your bottle look about middle part of the bottle skirt and you'll see a nur then a symbol and another number.The first number is the month the second symbol is who made the bottle for coke the third number is the year the bottle was made.After 1960 the date disappered.
On turn of the century bottles it was a streight regular bottle with coca Cola enbossed on bottom of the bottle,and on the upper shoulder of their bottles.
Have a good one!!
