the checklist page is a complete list of the Georgia cities & towns
known to have Coke bottles bearing their names. The checklist contains
values and collectability ratings. Do not expect to sell a bottle
at these prices. These values are what you might expect to pay in
an antique store.
NOTE - THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A THANKSGIVING BOTTLE OR A CHRISTMAS BOTTLE.
The bottles that some people refer to as Thanksgiving bottles have the
patent date of November 16, 1915. I assume that they think that this
was Thanksgiving Day. It was not. Thanksgiving Day was November
25 in 1915. The bottles that have the patent date of December 25,
1923 have been called Christmas bottles, but if you read the official Coca-Cola
Company website you will see that this date had absolutely NOTHING to do
with the celebration of Christmas, nor were the bottles produced on that
date, nor were the bottles filled on that date. The only true Dhristmas
bottles have Santa's picture on them and are completely worthless.
SIDED COCA-COLA BOTTLES
IN MANY DIFFERENT TYPES. ONE
IS NO MORE COLLECTIBLE THAN
TYPE. The bottles with the town
the shoulder in large print contained Coke
well as the script logo bottles. Usually, unless
bottle stated "Soda Water", it would be filled
Coke. Also, there are shoulder script straight sided bottles that
have SODA WATER embossed in the center of the bottle. Thus indicating
that the script logo did not designate the type of contents.
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.

TO READ THE CHECKLIST)
values are RETAIL, not what you should expect to sell the bottle for, but
what you should expect to pay in an antique store.
IF I DON'T SEE MY BOTTLE HERE????
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.
MORE THAN 3% OF THE BOTTLE IS DAMAGED, YOU SHOULD DEDUCT 90% OF THE VALUES
LISTED BELOW. SO-CALLED REPAIRS
