Hey Dan, what's the embossing on the soda? I am very familiar with CAL sodas but can't make it out in the picture. Gotta be a good one. Congratulations! Too bad my kids don't have such a great Dad. [8D]
I'm sure they disagree or at least will when it's executed. Isn't that like the worst choice for a word regarding that stuff like wills. Come one, execute?!!!!Anyway, I see, again with the will, Williams Beverage(s) San Francisco Cal.

O.K. Now I can see it and know it as: WILLIAMS / SEVERANCE / SAN FRANCISCO / CAL. A very nice piece even if not extremely rare. For California stuff it's VERY early even though not made / blown in California. I've had a couple of examples over the years, really enjoy the category. Jim

Dan, I do remember your earlier posts and enjoyed them immensely. I have missed your unique style. You and I have had a pretty good relationship.The memory of past digs is something, unfortunately, many of our current members have not had the privilege of experiencing. Many of the seasoned collectors / diggers have abandoned us for the more "sophisticated" Facebook. YUCK!Please post as it's convenient and keep us posted as to what is happening in your area. Jim
