This is the bottle that got me started in bottle collecting. I found at the beginning of this summer while fossil hunting in a creek near Fayetteville, NC. The soda bottle is embossed W.S. Jessup / Greensboro N.C. on the front and This / bottle is / never sold. According to the Greensboro, NC Directory from 1884 W.S. Jessup bottled soda water there. I also believe he had a business in Fayetteville, NC prior to that time but I seem to have misplaced the directory listing at this time.
