Erick Berry, Lillian Webster, and Paul Wing, One-String Fiddle, RCA-Victor, 1949. Set of two 78 RPM records.
Henry Mancini, Mancini Plays Mancini and Other Composers (like how they slipped that “other composers in there nice and small?), RCA-Camden CAS-2158, 1967.
Nesbitt’s Soda bottles, I have no idea what this tasted like. A commenter says it was Orange Soda.
Double Cola ACL (Applied Color Label) bottles. I prefer the left bottle.
These two Dr. Pepper bottles might look the same at a glance, but look at them again. The font on Dr. Pepper is most certainly different. And the circle on the neck is a different size. And one of them has “10 fl. oz.” on it. Now, check out the back:
One goes at an angle, the other takes two lines and is level. If you want to be a collector (of almost anything) you need to notice the small differences that can make a big difference.
4 different ACL Royal Crown (RC) Cola bottles from the 1930s to the 1970s. The two left ones are out of order. I went through a phase in about 7th grade where I almost exclusively drank RC. Well, I drank milk and water too, but you know what I mean. What memories do you have with RC Cola?
Four Mason’s Root Beer bottles with different designs. Two brown (amber) bottles and two clear. I have something like 1000 bottles, but I’ve been selling some off. I collected any brand, but I always looked for differences in the same brand, no matter how small. The difference could be the name on the neck, the location on the neck (high or low) or different wording on the back, etc.
The Orchestra and Chorus of Henry Mancini, Academy Award Songs, Volume 2, RCA-Victor PRM-175, 1965. The only reason I put this one up is the B. F. Goodrich special release.
