Well Dave used to collect soda stuff. Dave contacted me through the fleamarket and once we knew about each others collections, we decided to do some trading. I had marbles he wanted and he had some items I wanted.
Check out the treasures I got.
This is the group of Items I got
These are two rare glasses. The Dad's glass is worth about $30 and the Hires glass about $20.
The small Hires Extract box includes the bottle plus the instructions. It fits perfectly in the old mailer I found earlier. This is from 1929.
The coolest item is the right hand Syrup Tester bottle. I do not know for a fact it is a Root Beer tester. I found several sort of like it on the internet, but they are all clear and were called Coke-a-cola testers. If you are aware of other Root Beer Testers, please let me know.
The Ramblin mug is cool because I have never seen one before in all my travels. I had seen the RICHardson glass before but could not buy it, Getting this one was a treat.
Now that Dave and I know what each other collects, we will have an extra pair of eyes looking for treasures.
