This is mostly geared toward Zabe, Fusion, and a few others that appreciate the good 'ol days. I've rounded up a 100 or so of my 1970's Cokes. Nearly every one of these are different. Back then, Coke was experimenting with labels, sizes, etc. Some are plastic coated glass with foil labels, some have styrofoam labels, some are ACL, and others are paper labels. The sizes range from 26 oz, 28 oz, 32 oz, 1 liter, 48 oz, 64 oz, to 2 liters! Some have small caps while others are wide mouth. Some neck labels are different. Some were stirctly test market, some prototype, others only out for a few months. Thought you might enjoy! I've got more to unbox.

Guilty as charged. LOL
I'd be one of those old farts.

back some memories.

wow! that shiny, metallic red label is a TOTALLY different shade of red than today. i wonder if they needed a different patent for that one (and, yes, their current red is protected in some form).

Some of them even have old soda in them.
