Here's one for you Tennessee boys ...
Big Victory Chief ~ Morristown, Tennessee ~ 1935
Were these being made in 1935 or is the date a misread/misprint/typo?
I collect Big Chief's and have been wanting one of these for a long time but haven't been willing to pay the big bucks they usually demand. Too bad I didn't nab one back in 1972 for $2.00-$3.00
My personal opinion is that this is not a 1935 acl. My reasoning is that many early acls don't usually have neck labels, I'm guessing that this was a much more difficult process until around 1938 or 39.
Also it helps to check out when the bottler started.
Dixie Bottling Company Morristown Tennessee incorporated on June 12, 1945-Public Acts of the State of Tennessee 1947
It is not an early acl, which makes two acls the author, and his contributors, have gotten wrong.
