Rare Hutchinson Coke with Coca-Cola in script.

Reproduction Property of Coca-Cola Botttling Co.

Reproduction of the above Hutchinson Coke. Note how bottle has even been frosted to make it look old. The layout on the repro is higher on the shoulders and larger letters than the original. Also, the neck on the repro is too long and has a ring around it.

Also see closeup of this repro bottle. Here is a picture of another repro without the frosting.

Thanks to Danny Ragsdale for info on identifying a repro.

The ROOT bottles (i.e. have "ROOT 471 on the foot) were made after Nov 1901 since that is when ROOT Glass Works was first started. The most valuable hutches are embossed with Coca-Cola.
