These aren’t rare but some of my favorites as I dug them myself many years back when the Mississippi was unusually low. Plus I like the colors!View attachment 222627
Those are so lovely! Old soda bottles are my favorites! The pix only shows a couple of mine and I wish I could say that I dug them because I have dug many a bottle. Just not old sodas! Does any one know if the purple ones are irradiated? The cobalt crystal bottle is my favorite. Thanks for sharing!

I would say yes to being irradiated. Nice bottles

I owned a nice Pepsi hutch and sold it at the Atlanta national show a couple years back. Wish I hadn't. Michigan has many nice cobalt blue hutches, which are always nice, but this one, the first Coca Cola hutch is one of my favorites that I own - hard to find in this very clean and excellent condition.

My favorite Hawai'ian hutch is a KOHOLA (from the big island), full funnel top before the turn of 1900's.
Don't have a picture nor the bottle, sold it (wish I didn't.)
Mainland hutches, well I don't know anything about them and I've run out room for more bottles.
I did notice that hutches are becoming more popular, seen some very nice ones.

I don't think that Crystal hutch is irradiated because cobalt, light cobalt are quite common for that bottle.
A lot of collectors collect these not just for the color, but for the lip can because they can very a lot.
A clear or an aqua one is somewhat rare and worth more than most of the cobalt ones, so irradiating it would be somewhat foolish.
Sold well over 20 of these while living in No. CA.
