Think I did ok, don't buy too many bottles, went over to a fellow American legion member,on memorial Day. He's a retired digger, has a lot of quality stuff and said if I want to stop by I some bottles if you want to look at them. He wanted more but said he would sell them to me for 50 I better not see that you sold them. They're not tumbled . With the cobalt blue they seem to come in so many different shades of blue is it just the way they turned out that day? Deal or no deal?

Good deal for $50. Ive seen very few if any damage free cobalt blob sodas sell for less than $50 alone.

Lots of W.H.H. & Hayes Bottles out there, both common Chicago Brands, The W.H.H. from Hutchinson, same guy that invented the Hutchinson Stopper if I remember right, always see the Hayes in Hutches. BUT, being cobalt blue the W.H.H. worth more then $50 alone in my opinion. Hayes probably not a big $ item but both are attractive & desirable & in good condition. Go for it. LEON.

You must have never went on Valentine's Day. Fish bites, double cheeseburgers onion rings and clam fingers. Not to mention a large chocolate shake to share.
