Looks faked to me. Soda labels are rarely in good shape...the bottles were crated and the labels took a beating.

That looks pretty suspicious to me. Notice how both the label and cap don't mention Cotton Club anywhere on them. A cap not mentioning the brand isn't that unusual for smaller companies but a label not mentioning the brand raises huge red flags. The label also looks unusually crisp around the edges and the printing quality looks a bit off - I wouldn't be surprised if someone printed it off their computer. I think this is someone's fantasy bottle they made.

It appears so. Thanks for the heads up! I don't think I'm gonna buy it lol.

Always buyer beware on Ebay. Some sellers are honest and some aren't. This was probably made for someone that just wanted a bottle to look "nice" on a shelf and didn't care if it was original.
