New to bottle collecting, recently purchased a few at estate sale. Wanted to know what value and year of production on this Donald Duck Bottle if anyone knows? I thank you in advance for any help. Jd

Your Donald Duck soda bottle was made by the Glass Containers Corp. This link will tell you more about them ...


Their makers mark is sometimes described as a "hanging" or "interlocking" GC. There are several variations of the bottle - some of which are currently listed on eBay. The majority of them were made in the 1950s and sell on the average for about $20.

jdeldotto, my opinion is that the "65" on the base of your Donald Duck bottle signifies the date of the bottle (or the bottle's mold); 1965.

There is an earlier type of the Donald Duck bottle with a more pronounced 'deco' design. That one has a design patent dated 1953.
