Hi all,

I am currently working on a historic preservation/archaeology question related to a data set of 1300 World war II era Coca Cola bottles from Micronesia. As a 'by product' of that paper I am compiling (for the period 1942 to 1948) the number and letter codes that appear to the left of the Owens Illinois <(I)> bottle mark. As I am hoping to be able to make sense of these, I am keen to enlarge the dataset that I have.

I would like to crowdsource this and enlist your help, please.

I would be grateful if you could post details of your bottles here, IF they fit these three criteria:

• Owens Illinois <(I)> bottle mark
• casting date between 1942 and 1948 (i.e all are Patent D-105529 bottles)
• the left number code must have letter or a little solid dot in it.

Can you please post your details in the following manner?

Code / OI / year / base text

examples:
2A / OI / 45 San Francisco with dot
3N / OI / 46 Oakland with S
9• / OI / 44 blank (clear glass)

I will of course report back the findings.

Thank you !

Dirk Spennemann

I should add that I have already incorporated the data provided on antique-bottle.net discussions, such as from the very valuable the Agana hobbleskirt thread (see esp. this and this post).

Did not see the message notification come in (and did not actively check the thread as I am snowed under with marking of uni assignments)
