How do you tell how old a bottle is?
Likewise, people ask, how do you date old bottles?

Subsequently, question is, why are old Coke bottles Green? Today, the "Coke bottle green" color is nearly as synonymous with the drink as the bottle shape itself. This color was a natural result of the copper and minerals found in the sand that Root used to make his bottles (including the Coca-Cola bottle that his company patented).
Correspondingly, how do I know if my old bottles are worth anything?
While not all old bottles are valuable, an older bottle is more likely to be worth more than a newer one. Seams and pontil marks are two of the ways you can determine a bottle's age. The pontil mark is the mark at the bottom of the bottle where it was attached to the glass blower's pontil rod.
