Collecting Coca-Cola Bottles
Dr. John Pemberton would truly be amazed at the world-wide success of his syrup recipe known as Coca-Cola. Some of the Coca-Cola advertising dates back to the golden year of 1886. Financial consultants consider antique and collectibles, an important part of your portfolio. Coca Cola memorabilia is the number one collectible in the world, both in maintaining value and collectivity.
What Bottles Should I Collect?
Today, Coca-Cola is one of the most widely known brands in the world. Some international collectibles are quite rare and highly sought after. However, as a rule of thumb, advertising memorabilia from the US market before the 1970's has the best return on investment.
In 1894, The Coca-Cola Company began full bottling production. Glass bottle manufacturers referred to the bottles that used Hutchinson's Patent Spring Stoppers as Hutchinson bottles. Hutchinson bottles are rare and hold their value. If you come across an original Hutchinson bottle, buy it or I will.
Remember, walking to the corner grocery store and cashing in those Coke bottles for a "Nickle" or "Dime" each. If we only knew that Coca-Cola bottles would make perfect sense as part of your financial portfolio.
