Hey folks.


I'm looking for ss Cokes from Illinois. Its my home state so I would like to get a nice well rounded collection going. Its my understanding there are a lot of different types of these bottles and variations from 1904-16 .

If anyone has any they want to sell or trade please let me know by either posting on this thread or email.

I have about 40 scarce-rare straight sided Cokes to pick through for possible trades.

My most wanted IL ss Cokes are:

Decatur IL scroll script (fancy script)
Mt Carmel IL scroll script (fancy script)
Quincy IL (L&M bottling)
Pana IL (aqua or amber)
Champagne IL (slug plate)
Windsor IL (slug plate)




Thanks ! [:)]

Dave we don't live too far away from each other. I have a collection of straight sided coca cola's and pepsi colas that I would like to sell as a group. I'm not selling any individual bottles but would separate the Cokes & Pepsi's if you have no interest in the Pepsi's. They are from all over not just Illinois. If you are interested it would be Cash only & pickup would be required. We would have to work out a price as I haven't even looked at any of these for a few years. PM if you have any interest.

I would be all over that one if it had Coca-Cola in script on it. I suppose its worth noting I do not collect any block letter Cokes, but thanks for the heads up. [:)]

If anyone has any variations of these straight side Coca-Cola bottles they want to sell or trade, unload them here. [;)]

These are known as "fancy script" or "scroll script" bottles.

They were some of the first Coca-Cola bottles made in Illinois circa. 1904

4 town exist in this format.

-Chicago
-Peoria
-Mt. Carmel
-Decatur
