Final Bid
 560. THE SALT LAKE COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO RED SEAL BRAND. ABM 7 ½” Crown top. Here’s a later Coke bottle in clear. There is a fairly significant quarter inch chip off the lip but is otherwise very presentable. A little wear and a few scratches make this a grade 3. Est. $50-100. MB $40  
$ 40*
 COCA-COLA DENVER. Crown top 8 ¾” This is listed in the Petretti’s Coca-Cola Price Guide on page 403 and was made between 1905-16. Here’s a nice condition soda bottle in a clear glass with some crudity. In addition to the embossing, there is a number “30” near the front base. An outstanding example that easily grades a 7.5. Just a hint of interior stain. Est. $200-400. MB $200  
$ 200
 COCA-COLA BOTTLING WORKS LOS ANGELES. 8 ½” Tooled crown top “CCBW” on base. Here’s a Coca-Cola that is embossed in script around the base. They come this way with a number of different city names. The location of the embossing also enabled them to scratch and affect condition. This one, however, has very little wear and compared to some we’ve seen is outstanding. Bottle in general grades at least a 6. Est. $100-200. MB $80  
$ 160
 COCA-COLA SAN FRANCISCO CAL. 8” Tooled top with slight purplish tint. This “Frisco” example is fairly presentable with some wear but overall at least a 6 grade. Est. $100-200. MB $100  
$ 240
 THE BEST BY A DAM SITE BOULDER PRODUCTS LAS VEGAS NEV. 7½” Petretti-404. These Vegas Cokes have an interesting story, please see our last catalog for more detail. This one is ABM (Automatic Bottling Machine) and is generally a 7 grade despite the wear around the very base. Est. $80-160. MB $40  
$ 190
 MAYFIELD’S CELERY COLA J.C. MAYFIELD MFG. CO BIRMINGHAM, ALA. 7” Hutchinson style with tooled top. Here we have a scarce offshoot of the cola loved by people and nations around the world. Condition is a little rough but there is some crudity with the scratches and a tiny flake off the lip. It grades a 6+. Est. $100-200. MB $50  
$ 220
 COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO LAS CRUCES DEMING NEW MEXICO. ABM 8” Here we have a super condition Coca-Cola from the great state of New Mexico. With just a hint of wear near the base and a couple scratches, this one grades a solid 8+. A scarce bottle. Est. $50-100. MB $50  
$ 120
 PROPERTY OF SALT LAKE COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO REGISTERED (In circle). Petretti-399. Here’s one of a number of Cola bottles from Salt Lake. My gosh! Without beer or other liquor, what else were they going to drink but America’s beverage of choice? This has some wear and a little stain with a tiny ding on the right base of the seam but generally grades a 7. A light cleaning would probably bring it up a grade. Est. $50-100. MB $50  
$ 160
 SALT LAKE COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO SALT LAKE CITY UTAH. 10” with tooled top. As they used to say to John Wayne, “You are one big drink of water,” I guess you could say that about this cola as it stands higher than all the others in this sale. A brilliant bluish aqua, there is wear around the shoulders and some scratching along with a chip from the very bottom front base. It almost appears to be an open bubble but was probably “clanked” against another bottle. Est. $50-100. MB $40  
$ 425
 SALT LAKE COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO COCA-COLA SALT LAKE CITY. 8” tooled top. Here’s another Salt Lake Coke. Boy, those people must have really liked Coca-Cola. Pictured Patretti-401. This has an odd shape and some scratches and dullness around the top. There is a natural ping on the back, see video. Est. $50-100. MB $40.  
$ 210
