I paid only 20 dollars for it. I myself couldnt believe the price, especially for a full example of its age (it did come from a non collector, which definitely had something to do with it ;D). It is however missing the label, which I'm buying soon. If anyone knows how to apply the labels to the bottle, please do tell! The bottle was produced in Columbus, Georgia.

Actually $30.00 since you had to pay for shipping but who's counting. Anything that you can get unopened from that far back (almost 100 years) is a great find.

Yeah shipping has gotten insane. It's almost as if you have to pay double the actual price of the bottle.

That is pretty early for a sealed crown top bottle. While I hate to be negative, personally I'm suspicious that it may have been refilled recently. The caps from that era had cork liners which have a tendency to decay over time, though if it was kept in perfect conditions I suppose it's possible that the contents are original. However, that exact Chero Cola cap is also currently available online, unused, for $3.

Yes, but I bought it from someone who didn't sell any other bottles and I only paid $30 for it. If they were knowingly scamming, I'd feel like they would charge way higher for it. Also, I have a cork sealed bottle from around the same time with the paper seal unbroken and original contents still in there, so it is definitely possible to be original.

Yeah I wouldn't expect them to be scamming you, but it is possible they were mislead. I've been sold refilled bottles by people who didn't know any better in the past. Regardless, $30 certainly isn't the end of the world one way or the other.

That's a 1930s cap on a bottle discontinued in 1923. If you want an original label I have some listed on eBay.
