I found this one on top of an old rotten stump. Just staring at me. I thought I was dreaming. Only 16 states had codd bottles. 66 bottlers used codd bottles in the U.S.A. with about 270 known variations. 16 variations in N.Y. New Jersey (where I live) has no known codd bottles. Here is a link to a complete revised list of American codd bottlers and variations. This one is cataloged as #51494AB only 2 variations of D.H.Smith.

Ha Haa! That's what I love the best about this hunting for old bottles! You find a sight, walk around for a bit, just as you're about to give it up for the day...BAM there it is smiling up at you as if to reward you for your diligence and time spent searching for it!

4 newly listed USA Codds will be added to my site www.sodasandbeers.com soon. This will bring the number to 149 Codd shaped bottles and 2 Hybrid Codds. The listing Dr. Muncy used, he got from me a long time ago and the listing has double since.

And Yes there are two NJ Codds known.
2 American Codd hydrids? Which ones? I looked on the site but couldn't figure out which 2 are hybrids. I love the torpedo bottoms on them. I also like Roorbach bottles. I frequent your site often, a wonderful resource. Thanks for the reply.

I just realized this morning that the bottle because of it sitting in the sun although shaded ¾ of the year. Isaw through my less tired morning eyes that it is the lightest amethyst color (very faint). Also the Banner that contains all the embossing is held up by a rod with an arrow on each end.
