    I found out through the newspaper that in the early 1900 there was a Coca Cola Bottling Co. on the corner of Burleson St. and Hwy 290. The coke bottle survived 100 years out here in the sand. Since Coke did not eliminate the cocaine till 1929 this is an original recipe cocaine coke bottle.
    Cool find Don! A little bit of history there.

    Interesting link, and surprised me that any was in it after 1903 (or thereabouts) since that's when cocaine became illegal.
    But, I do stand corrected...

    Good! It might be! It holds 8 0z so that just might be it. I'll see if I can get a pic of the 2 or Z.

    Joemd11 you are a winner!

    I missed the dot after fld - 7FLD.OZ - and the 2 does look more like a Z and the bottle looks full at exactly 7oz. See pics.

    Seven Fluid Ounces - yes!!!!

    Lucky you Don! And not just on the bottle find - that weather looks great.

    So am I right in saying that cocaine is referred to as "coke" for short because of the fact it was in Coca Cola (also called "Coke") originally?
