Found this Dr. Pepper from Panama City, FL under an old dock. Has anyone ever seen one or know of the rarity/value? Has a crack in the lip. Embossed L.G.W on heel and base, 6 1/2 oz embossed on heel as well.

I am no expert, but I think they go for anywhere from 5$ to 15$. i just sold a debossed one from Paragould Arkansas 1947 for 8$. Is yours embossed or debossed? Here is a pic of the one I had. Nice bottle. [attachment=dr pepper emb front & back.jpg]

Debossed is usually common for this kind-- that is not to say that there are not rare debossed ones. They were around for a long time making this style. I have one I found by chance when hiking, and it's from my town. They do come embossed, too. Debossed is sunken-in lettering. You know what embossed is for sure.

The debossed ones usually sell for about $15 or less, like iggyworf said. If it's a rare town it may be closer to $20 or maybe even $30, depending on the rarity. If yours has a crack in the lip you're probably looking at around $5. Still a nice find in my opinion! Embossed bottles sell for about $30 (common towns maybe a little less than that) and up, so it's always a good idea to check and see if a bottle is embossed or debossed. I've found that many people don't know the difference.
