Data needed—Coca-Cola Bottles, Patent D-105529, Owens Illinois, 1942–1948 period
I am currently working on a historic preservation/archaeology question related to a data set of 1300 World war II era Coca Cola bottles from Micronesia. As a 'by product' of that paper I am compiling (for the period 1942 to 1948) the number and letter codes that appear to the left of the Owens Illinois <(I)> bottle mark. As I am hoping to be able to make sense of these, I am keen to enlarge the dataset that I have.
I would like to crowdsource this and enlist your help, please.
I would be grateful if you could post details of your bottles here, IF they fit these three criteria:
• Owens Illinois <(I)> bottle mark
• casting date between 1942 and 1948 (i.e all are Patent D-105529 bottles)
• the left number code must have letter or a little solid dot in it.
Can you please post your details in the following manner?
Code / OI / year / base text
2A / OI / 45 San Francisco with dot
3N / OI / 46 Oakland with S
9• / OI / 44 blank (clear glass)
I will of course report back the findings.
Thank you !
