Hi community,

I am new at this so bear with me.  I found this bottle without digging.  It has a letter L in bottom center; Words New Bern above the L; letters NC below the L.

I tried coke in New Bern, North Carloina but basically got nowwhere.  I want to know who casted this bottle and whether or not it has much value?

Thanks

Very few of these have any relative value.
There are some that have a Patent Date of Dec25 1923.
These are considered "Christmas Coke Bottles" and have
some value over the normal Pat # bottles.
Another is dated to 1919 I believe.
That one has a little more rarity and is more valuable.
I have several of the Christmas bottles and only one of the 1919 bottles.
The embossed letters on the bottom is insignificant, unless you want one from a particular City.

Thank you for your reply.  I did see on one site that the style of bottle was started in 1916 I believe.  It was on a site showing the history of coke bottles produced.

I see photographs of coins etc. that people find.  How do you get those closeup photos?  Do you need a special camera?

You need a camera that has a "macro" function on it.  All that is, is a "closeup" feature.  Usually works great for closeups!  I had to play with my camera before I finally worked it out.

Thanks ArfyBoy.

My camera is a Vivitar X327.  I can select macro.  I have sort of gone through the manual which is on a pdf.  Guess we don't get printed manuals much anymore.  The dates on some of my coins need to be magnified to see them.  I have a 1916 Indian head that I dug up which is quite faint.  I'll experiment sometime with the camera.

1916 Indian Head? Cent or Nickel?
The last Indian head cent was produced in 1909.
Once you have your pics downloaded to your Compooter go to your viewer
and you can manipulate it there as you wish.
Just play with your program till you get the hang of it.
You can take a relativily large pic and reduce it to a smaller size for posting.
Other wise it may be too large and this site has it's limitations.

Oh rats, I checked that post and I did omit that it is a nickel.  I have two other ones that I cannot see the date yet.  A coin dealer told a friend of mine to soak them in olive oil.  It's working.  I can see the date area getting better on one of them.  The other is worn badly.   The coin book my friend has indicates that the Indian head nickel started in 1913.

Thanks for all your help.
