Updated Monthly !!

This checklist was updated April 2014

This page does not list every type of Coke bottle,
please read carefully to see what it does list.

Buy, Sell, Trade, Questions........Call 706 613-0224

Please note, that I will buy 1989 reproductions of the 1923 Coca-Cola bottles from any towns in Georgia, except Ball Ground and Rome.  So, if you have Atlanta, Columbus, or other GA town repro 1923 bottles, I will pay $20. each for them, if in good condition.

>>>>

Below is a complete list of the Georgia cities & towns known to have Coke bottles bearing their names.  The checklist contains retail values and collectability ratings.  Do not expect to sell a bottle at these values.  These values are what you might expect to pay in an antique store.

Please be aware that a misspelled town name does not add to the value.  Errors were common on Coke bottles. (more info)

Also, Coke bottles came in different colors and shades, the bottles were clear, blue, aqua, and green.  There were different shades of each color.  Dalton Straight Sided bottles were the only Georgia bottles in brownish amber.  THE COLOR OF THE BOTTLE HAS NO RELATIONSHIP TO VALUE.

I have the most complete
collection of embossed
contour (hobbleskirt) Georgia
Coca-Cola bottles that I know
of, clean and in good condition.

Jeff Weinberg has the most complete
collection of Georgia straight sided
Coca-Cola bottles that I know of,
clean and in good condition, with
almost every variation imagineable.

(HOW TO READ THE CHECKLIST)

The values are RETAIL, not what you should expect to sell the bottle for, but what you should expect to pay in an antique store.

WHAT IF I DON'T SEE MY BOTTLE HERE????
That does not mean that it's RARE, it simply means that I have not had the time to list it yet or I don't feel that it's important enough to list at all.

IMPORTANT

IF MORE THAN 3% OF THE BOTTLE IS DAMAGED, YOU SHOULD DEDUCT 90% OF THE VALUES LISTED BELOW.  SO-CALLED REPAIRS DO NOT ADD VALUE.
