I have a couple of amber straight-side Coca Cola bottles. One of which is a hard to find horseshoe arrow Coke from Louisville, KY. I bought both of these with intentions to resell them. What would a good asking price be for the pair of them? Also, does anyone know any of the history behind the horseshoe arrow one? It's just very different from any other Coca Cola bottle that I've seen. I'm pretty sure it's from sometime in the 1910s but other than that I'm clueless. They are both in pretty good condition considering their age, the one on the right needs a bit of polishing.

I found an identical louisville bottle yesterday. Yours looks like mine without the 6 1/2 oz. embossed on it. From what I've found so far is that this dates it to before 1914. When some gov. regulation required the amounts be put on the bottle. I think it dates to around 1912-1913. I found one on ebay that recently sold for $150. There are 2 on there now. 1 for $250 and 1 for $275. Here is a good little read for you, it's a pdf file so you have to download it....


Does yours have these same markings on it?
