I found 4-packs of Coca-Cola in the 2nd design of the retro glass series. The first was the 1899 glass replica produced for the 2007 holiday season.
The 4-pack retailed for $3.18 at my local Wal-Mart and it was bottled at Needham Heights, Massachusetts.

I guess it supposed to based on this:

Evolution Of The Coca-Cola Bottle (http://www.eriessen.dds.nl/bottle_evolution.htm)

Evolution Bottle #3A - Years: 1900 - 1915
Important Words On Label: *Check paper label* "BOTTLED UNDER AUTHORITY OF THE COCA COLA COMPANY ATLANTA GA - ASA CANDLER, PRES."
Description: Clear glass, cork/crown sealed, straight sided, raised letter, paper diamond label, returnable.
Historical Notes: Although varying in colors from clear to green to ice blue to honey to amber - this bottle was the best attempt to date for package uniformity. City names appear on side of bottles.

Sweet! Someone mentioned that it was a series when I bought the first 6 pack back in December...I frantically searched stores for the next in the series, finding nothing. Looks like a pretty neat series.

Nice! here it was available for a limited time too, but in the mexican version says the exact legend of the original label, but obviously in spanish... the cardboard packaging looks really awesome too!

Thanks for sharing!... :)
