What's the other side of the bottle look like. you showed the same side twice. Date should be about 3/4 of the way down the bottle on outside. LEON.

Yes, with no D-Patent # on other side & just the Patent Office, the first whole year they made this bottle was 1952. Before 52 they had the D-Patent # at least until mid 1951. LEON.

Are these hobble skirt cokes worth a second look? Just wondering as I have a few and wondered if I should look through them or just recycle them which is what I normally do

Do you mean the 50s Cokes or hobbleskirts in general? Hobbleskirts are absolutely worth a second look as some are very rare and collectible. I don't think there are many if any rare 50s ones though, though I wouldn't say they should be sent to the recycle bin. I'm sure someone would be happy to have them... although I have to admit I leave behind all the 50s Cokes I come across in the woods.
