I thought all Coke bottles were clear glass. Apparently not.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

Actually, the only Clear Cokes were produced during WW2. From 1915 + all Cokes were Aqua or different shades of aqua & some were a light blue. Pre 1915 some came in Amber. LEON.

Here's a new one for me. I received this Wednesday May 8th, after work. Drove by a Detroit Construction site & found this one 99% buried in a dirt pile. It's a Faygo Hutch Bottle. Faygo first started out as Feigenson Bros. in 1907 & this is there very first Bottle from that time frame. Rare bottle & a variation I was looking for, for many years. Couldn't even find one to buy. Better yet dug this one for FREE :shock:

Saying I wish I could find it, Then not finding it, Leaving & walking to the car all bummed out & discouraged could not find it, Then I stop to see what a small microscopic piece of glass is & it turns out to be IT :shock: Thing is, That little piece of glass could of literally been any one of a million different piece's of glass or bottles possible. The chance of it being it was one in a million. Maybe I better play the Lottery, maybe my luck is changing :razz: LEON.

Walker’s Royal Crown Beer from Centerline (Detroit) Michigan.
They were in business from 1934-1940.
I’ve never seen anything from this brewery until this bottle came up on eBay recently.

For the price it sold for I got alot of different Walker Labels I could sell you. I know the guy that sold that bottle, a Friend of mine, I was not convinced it was legit on that bottle but possibly recently glued or added to that bottle since it's missing the neck label & no sign a neck label was ever there. The Brewery still stood a few years ago as a ABC Warehouse Appliance Store & now tore down & replaced with a storage lot I think, It's only 3 miles from my house & I drive by it all the time. Anyways, Congrats, Nice tough Label. LEON.

That’s always my concern when I’m buying any bottle. Is the bottle original to the label.
I do like that the label has a patina and both are dirty along with wear to the edges, so if I had to bet I’ld say it was all original but who knows until another one shows up.
EDIT
I did notice the early Regal bottles from Canada did not use neck labels either. Maybe a little cheaper to manufacture.
