The wire stopper is included! There are two versions of the Coca Cola hutch bottle from Chattanooga Tenn.
The version for sale is embossed with Coco -Cola and the other version is embossed with Coca -Cola. Both versions are considered to be Coca Cola hutch bottles and most collectors believe that the Coco -Cola version was an error that was produced first and then changed the embossing to Coca-Cola once the error was discovered. Condition: This is a beautiful example that has been polished to VNM (very near mint) condition.This dug bottle has two very small nicks around the outer lip of the blob top. Also, the bottle has one very small nick at the base of the bottle on the back side which cannot be seen when displayed. As you can see from the photos the bottle is very clear and has hundreds of tiny micro-bubbles in the glass, none are open! The embossing inside the slug plate is very near mint with clean and crisp lettering! P lease look at the photos carefully to see the near mint condition of this bottle.
It displays beautifully and could be a nice addition to your Hutch, Hutchinson, Straight Sided, Vintage and/or Rare Coca Cola Bottle, Coke collection. Don't miss the opportunity to own an extremely rare piece of Coca Cola history! Note: I have added additional photos of the top and base to show the areas of minor damage. 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. PLEASE REMEMBER, MANY SELLERS WILL SAY THEIR BOTTLES ARE "GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC" BUT FAKE AMETHYST/PURPLE/AMBER AND BLACK AMETHYST BOTTLES ARE ONLY GUARANTEED TO BE WORTHLESS!! REPRODUCTION COCA COLA LABELS on Coca-Cola Bottles. Also, beware of auctions that have Coca Cola labels applied to bottles. 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!
