Great picture, the paper label is in good condition too!

Thank you! It has the back label, as well. I have 4 hofsteaders and have thought of parting with a couple of them. I think I’d have to keep the labeled one (of course) and the one on the opposite side, for its patina that’s not showing, in the pix. I do like some sick bottles, depending on the bottle ... because you just can’t fake that!

I didn’t realize cone-tops were used for sodas! I used to soak those off, and see what was under the rust... I guess people drank a lot of beer around here, is all I ever found! Dutch lunch anyone? Those were cute! Or acme beer?

Swim bottles you’ve found swimming. How appropriate ! Cool
I've found a few seven up swim when swimming at a certain dock here , never in good condition , maybe some white paint

only nice seven up swim I can recall seeing in the wild was along a roadway here uncovered when they dug it up 5 or 6 years ago but got smashed to bits , it had full colour .

when they did that dig I found several other soda's in good condition that I still have but the seven up got broke

And sticking with my dirty bottle theme- the demijon
. I really don’t know much about these, other than they are massive, old , dirty, unmarked and blown glass an seem to be catnip to my cats .

A little late on but I have a few to show off. Not really sodas or beers, but some localized bottles either found in nearby abandonned buildings or dumps. I'm quite new to this kind of thing too so tell me if I'm wrong.
