Coke was not exclusively bottled in script bottles, nor were script bottles exclusively used for Coke. One example is the Augusta shoulder script, logo on shoulder, and SODA WATER in the center of the bottle. In the early days there was not a monopoly on Coke, several different companies were licensed to sell Coke syrup and bottlers were not limited to a specific style of bottle. Prior to Candler gaining full control, there was not one type of bottle used. Even after the full take-over independent bottlers did what they wanted to do regarding bottles.

Athens Contour (Hobbleskirt) Coca-Cola Bottles
The first five versions of these Contour Coke bottles are easily identified by their embossing:
01. Athens "PAT'D NOV.16
1915" were produced from 1917 to 1929. This style bottle was produced
in clear, blue, or green.
02. Athens "PAT'D DEC.
25 1923" (called the "Christmas Cokes") (called the "Christmas Cokes" but
NOT issued for Christmas) were produced from 1928 to 1938. These
bottles were usually green or clear.
03. Athens "PAT. D 105529"
(called "Pat D"Cokes) were produced from 1938 to 1951. These bottles
were mostly green, but during World War II some were blue.
04. Athens "US PATENT
OFFICE / MIN CONTENTS 6 FL OZ" were produced from 1951 to 1958. Some
of these have "ATHENS GA" in large print, but are the same value as the
small print. These bottles were usually green.
05. Athens "US PATENT
OFFICE / MIN CONTENTS 6 1/2 FL OZ" were produced from 1958 to 1965.
These bottles were usually green.
LARGE PRINT BOTTLES HAVE NO MORE VALUE THAN MEDIUM AND SMALL PRINT
If you collect by glass
maker, you may add about 10 % to the value for makers other than Chattanooga
and Laurens. Chattanooga is the C in a circle like the copyright
symbol or may read "CHATT". Laurens is the L or may read "LGW".
These are the most common on the Athens Coke bottles, with Chattanooga
being the most common of all. An embossed straight line underneath
the name Athens is a mark that indicates Root Glass Company produced the
bottle. Root is fairly common on the 1923's. Learn more about
Athens "ACL" white painted label
06. 6 1/2 ounces
07. 10 ounce
The bottles that have "Return for Deposit" have a random base, so not made specifically for the Athens, but because they do read "Athens GA" and one in good condition is very difficult to find, if you are collecting Athens bottles, it is a must have bottle for the Athens collector.
