COLLECTORS BEWARE:FAKE AMETHYST/PURPLE/AMBER/BLACK AMETHYST Coca Cola Bottles Sold on
AKA Cobalt Irradiated Glass
FAKE PURPLE Coca-Cola BottlesBe careful when buying Straight Sided and Hobble-skirt Coca-Cola bottles with a Deep Purple (Cobalt Blue) and/or a so called Black AMETHYST color. Dark purple is not a natural color for these bottles and is caused by irradiating older bottles. The older Coke bottles had manganese that will turn the bottle dark purple when irradiated. There are some naturally occurring bottles with a light amethyst/purple or pink tint - leaving them out in prolonged sunlight (SCA) will darken the tint (but they will NEVER become a Dark (Blue) (Black) Amethyst). Also, sellers use the private buyer routine so knowledgeable collectors and sellers can't warn you that the so called rare bottle you are offerding on is worthless.
PLEASE REMEMBER, MANY SELLERS WILL SAY THEIR BOTTLES ARE "GUARANTEED BUT FAKE AMETHYST/PURPLE/AMBER AND BLACK AMETHYST BOTTLES ARE ONLY GUARANTEED TO BE WORTHLESS!!!
REPRODUCTION COCA COLA LABELS on Coca-Cola BottlesAlso, beware of sales that have Coca Cola labels applied to bottles. For example, recently on you could find Coca Cola labels on bottles that don't have Coca Cola in script or block letters on the bottle. These types of bottles obviously never held Coca Cola and the label may be a reproduction. Also, keep in mind, very few Coca Cola bottles with the original label have survived over the years! Please ask the seller questions about the bottle and/or label to determine authenticity before you buy.One seller on takes a non-embossed soda bottle worth maybe a dollar or two, slaps a fake 1900's diamond Coca-Cola label on it and sells it for $100+. He does the same thing with with original straight sided cokes and sells them for almost 5X what they are actually worth. Recently he had an non-embossed hutch, applied one of his famous coke labels, and sold it for $500+ as an "EXTREMELY RARE COCA-COLA HUTCH WITH LABEL". BUYERS BEWARE!
