There was no eBay in 1972. Prices were based on local SC market. Jones apparently attended only his local bottle show at Greer organized by Richard Lezier. He didn't attend the next nearest show at Augusta or shows at Raleigh, Knoxville, or Atlanta. The book is valuable because it pictures 2000 soda bottles, mostly from the Carolina's and Georgia. Paul Jeters 1980 book has a lot of history but few pictures. When the new comprehensive SC book is out in a few months Jones book will be less relevant.
ORIGINAL: T D

I hear Jones' sense of humor mentioned again, and it makes me think along the lines I did earlier in this thread. Suppose Jones did not collaborate with anyone, photographed all the bottles in his collection, self valued them, and made a book? I'm not saying this happened and once again do not even want to hint that this is what happened because I never met the man, but in theory it could happen. I do know that at least three South Carolina collectors that I know and respect either have or want the book, so it must mean something to them.

I conclude that in my estimation, the probability of there being a blob top Coke from Augusta, Georgia is .0000000001 % yes and 99.9999999999 % no.

Somebody count the zeros and nines to see if that adds up to 100.

Speaking of the 1972 J.L. Jones book and acls ...

This should be an easy one, especially for North Carolina collectors. But one I am not familiar with and have a question about. The text is on page 130 and it is pictured on page 131, and described as ...

Crown Quality Beverages ~ Canada Dry Bottling Company ~ Charlotte, North Carolina ~ 1930

Question: Is this a 1930 acl?

It appears that book is full of "mistakes", either by the author, the contributors or the printer... [;)]
