Ouch, I hate to see older ones smashed up like that. But still better than nothing. Any idea on age? Can't see the date code too well.
Well after further review there is literally nothing on this thing on the bottom it says Danville VA and then on the front side it’s a Coca-Cola the trademark registered and US patent office then the other side says Coca-Cola trade mark registered contents 6 1/2 fluid ounces so I do not see any type of date

The broken one is from the 50s but it always sucks to see them broke. One day you will get your first complete one. I believe the clear one has a date code on the bottom.

a lot of coca cola bottles broke that way , I'd find them in that condition when swimming often . might of had something to do with manual bottle opener or person using it too aggressively maybe ? or was dropped on the ground

but coca cola was so popular back then too , even if 1 in 100 of there bottles broke , they were selling cases and cases each day so could be a lot of broken ones out there
