Beware of Coca-Cola bottles sold on eBay. My husband and I saw a bottle sold on eBay for $115 today. It was a dark purple contour bottle. Now I don’t know much about bottles but I do know that contour bottles are not worth that much money because so many of them have been made and they can easily survive years because of its durability. Also, there is no such thing as a purple Coca-Cola bottle. According to Antiquebottles.com, dark purple is not a natural color for these bottles and is caused by irradiating clear bottles. The older Coke bottles had manganese that will turn the bottle dark purple when irradiated.
So please, do your research and don’t pay for a bottle that is worthless.
