Major Cities East of the Mississippi including St, Louis and New Orleans have numerous colored examples almost all of which sell for $100 or more.
The best examples of colored sodas can bring 00-000 for scarce forms and rare colors.
One characteristic that just about all soda-pop bottles from the first half of the 20th century have in common is the bottle’s city of origin, which is embossed right into the glass.
This makes collecting bottles from this period, especially Coca-Cola bottles, particularly satisfying.
Thousands and thousands of soda bottles have been bottled since the first bottlers in Philadelphia in the early-19 century.
