Hi just started collecting bottles from my hometown of Front Royal, VA. I got one now off ebay (Nu-Icy) and I'm hooked, not sure if this is pc but filled it with mountain dew and found a nos cap and bottled it for display! I'm going to lite it underneath later.

But I was trying to find out about the 7-up bottling plant in Front Royal and there's literally nothing on the internet about it? Apparently the Front Royal Coke bottle is really rare (Scarce +) all that's left is the Coca-Cola sign in town still looking good! :)

Here's an older pic of the sign...

Well I finally found a Coke bottle last weekend from Front Royal here. In pretty good shape. The bottle is from 1916-1928 and marked Pat 'D Nov 16, 1915.
