The bottle was made by Chattanooga glass company. The C in a circle double lined or single lined like yours was used from 1901-1988. They made a lot of coke bottles. 64 is the year and the other numbers are plant number 2 and mold number 24

Larger companies used mold numbers to trouble shoot bottles. Any errors can be isolated to a mold by it's mold number. The plant number is the plant used to manufacture the bottle. Chattanooga like owen used a different number for each of thier facilities.

I don't know where this guy was from... he was wanting to know the age of the bottle,,, but I bought a couple Spur bottles with the same bail looking stopper here in Missouri.. guessing they could be bought to help reseal the bottles of soda.. they don't have the twist bail that you
can't remove easy like you see on some .. these kinda snap/slide right on and off the bottle and seem to work

10-4 those are pretty cool - reusable bail stoppers. I have yet to find any of those.
