    Christmas Coke Bottles Patent Dec 25 1923

    While digging a privy this weekend I found two Coke bottles with patent dates of Dec 25 1923 and the city of Beaumont Texas in the bottom. They were found at the 4' level in the privy. Anybody have any information?

    They're worth a few dollars (not big $$ but probably $10 to $20 a piece).

    HH and keep us posted with that ghost town hunt!

    This is a quote or price listing from,"KOVELS ADVERTISING COLLECTIBLES PRICE LIST" 2005 edition."Bottle,Hobble Skirt,Aqua,Embossed,December 25,1923,20-1/4x6 in................385.00".So what size are the ones you found.You'd be surprised to see what some people will pay for some things.The value of an object is determined by what someone else is willing to pay for it.Good luck and keep on searchin'

    Correct me if I am wrong but there was only one Coke bottle size during that era (6.5 oz.).

    I drank hundreds of Cokes out of those Christmas bottles when I was growing up. That was the only bottle Coca-Cola had for many years so there were literally millions of them made.

    Unless the bottles you found are in perfect condition I doubt they are worth a great deal. Maybe $2, $5 or even $10 (if you find the right buyer) but I can't see them being worth anywhere close to $100.

    Still a nice find.

    Well,I guess you stand corrected because I know for a fact that there was a 23 1/2 oz. bottle in 1920.Not as many produced, so that's probably why they're worth so much,uhh,because they are scarce and hard to come by.Not that I would pay such a ridiculous price for a commercially produced semi-modern glass bottle.Good luck and H.H.

    Interesting. But if the 23.5 oz. bottles were around in 1920 they would not have the Christmas 1923 trademark date. So what Hambone found couldn't be one of them.

    They produced a 23 1/2 oz. bottle in 1920,I didn't say that was the ONLY year they produced it.Where you at Hambone?

    Ok guys condition is everything in selling a coke bottle,but what really determines the price is what town it is from.Some small towns might have only issued a few,especially if thier bottling plant closed down just after the christmas coke just came out.Some of these rare small town cokes can bring hundreds of dollars.
