Thanks Bottleopop, I will take all the info. anyone has, I know this is not a hundred dollar bottle, But I like different type bottles that you don't see every Day. I had a nice Pyramid bottle that Sodapopbob and I made a deal on, kinda reminds me of that bottle, not sen on e-bay or seldom seen in antique shops.

I recently picked up quite a few non-Las Vegas matchbooks and this one was in the lot. I had never heard of Silver State Ginger Ale and there isn't much information out there ouside of this forum. Chuck

old59 Welcome to the forum! I was curious about the date for your matchbook and discovered it dates sometime between late 1934 and early 1937. According to these newspaper ads, the Karmelkorn/Nut-Hut opened in October of 1934 and then changed the name to Karmelkorn Coffee Shop and relocated in 1937. In 1934 they were located at 228 North Center Street and in 1937 they were located at 118 Sierra Street. Notice in both ads that the phone number 21622 is the same ... [ Attachments ] 1.

By the way ... In the 1934 ad where it mentions "Bob Carroll's Blind Ride" refers to a sideshow he did where he would drive a car blindfolded. I don't know the details, but based on what I read it wasn't a gimmick but some type of knack he had for performing the unbelievable.

P.S. The earliest date I can find for Silver State Ginger Ale is November 3, 1933

Thanks for the history lesson! Definitely a regional item. I found an add from the Nevada State Jornal, October 19th, 1935 that listed "Silver State Ginger Ale, Large 24 oz Bottle, 29 Cents." I wonder how many different bottles did they produce? There's the embossed version and an ACL version, both of which look like 16 oz from the picture.
