Good afternoon all--

New member here, thanks for having me.

I recently bought a vintage Coca Cola bottle with a Lexington, KY stamp (and a smaller, faint 530LS marking underneath).

But the most interesting marking is on the bottom of the bottle. In addition to the usual "Coca-Cola" script, there is what appears to be a horseshoe with a Coke bottle in the middle. I have been unable to find another like it anywhere online. I was told that this was a 1905-07 Derby bottle.

Does anyone have additional insights? Pictures are attached.

Thanks,
Jake

That is the mark for the Graham Glass Company (1916-1918). Nothing to do with the Derby that I am aware. Bottle looks machine made...

I knew I came to the right place. Thanks for the info!

Is this mark common on Coca Cola bottles? As mentioned, had never seen another one like it, but I'm far from an expert.
