too bad its missing the top , I know coca cola was bottled in Havana Cuba in that time period , a green coca cola bottle does seem kind of unusual to come across
i think for a long years exposing into the heat of the sun. antique bottles changes into color. this is what i was thinking...

I don't think so. Check this others Coca Cola Bottlesade in Havana too and found in same place. Other difference is the imprintt letters. The green one reads in spanish :THIS BOTTLE IS NOT FOR SALE. I think it could be a seller's sample.

Bottles don't turn green in the sun, the only colour they turn is purple. Artificial irradiation can turn clear bottles brown as well, but never green and as far as I know that can't be done by the sun.

usually a bottle exposed to to much sun will turn a light Pink. some call this Sun Colored Amethyst or SCA for short. LEON.

I've never seen either natural or artificial irradiation cause a bottle to turn green. Weird purple yes. Muddy brown in mason type jars yes. Not green. I bet that bottle has some fair coca cola collector value even as badly damaged as it is.
