Nice collection! I see one or 2 of these mini bottle shakers every so often, but never seen most of those. My brother has a green, twisted soda bottle with no name on it. I thought it was bubble-up or something, but now I know it's Squirt!

That's a nice collection there! :)

Those are beauties in really great shape! I have mini PBR, forget what other mini is but Schlitz Milwaukee embossed bottom which is tad larger is my favorite.

I had a few more of these than I thought. The red Country Clubs are common around here but this white one is a little unusual. Pabst has a real ribbon on it.

I've not seen that bottom embossing before. Cool!

Those are some cool mini's there. Especially the Blatzes.

When I'm out antiquing, I always look in the showcases for these small examples.

It's a mini-"steinie" instead of a mini-longneck which is cool.

Nice bottles. I found a piece of the RC bottle once, just part of the label, had it identified in here. Pretty cool......

Hey glasshopper! Iíve been admiring your post for a while now. I have a good bottle collection going now and I was curious on how you clean gunk out of old bottles. I have some that have this nasty film inside that wonít even come loose when I scrub with a wooden dowel.

Can you post a pic of a bottle with this nasty film you speak of? Cleaning depends on if it's a foreign substance "on" the glass or "in" it.

Sure, itís hard to capture the film in some of them because its an opaque white color. Itís all in the inside of the bottle. I read trying vinegar will help with loosening that up so Iím considering trying that out. Luckily most of my best bottles donít have it.

Those two Cokes look like loose dirt on the outside that will easily clean off with a soapy scrub with a stiff brush and then maybe #0000 steel wool. It won't hurt the glass at all. Hint: start off getting the outside nice and clean before trying to clean the inside, makes it easier. That first clear bottle with the cap looks like the cloudiness is on the inside. For that, (and all the others) try water and cleanser, or beach sand and scrub all around using a bottle brush. Some cloudiness on bottles (old ones) only tumbling will clear them up. For bottles you may find in creeks with that orange or green "mong" on/in them there are stronger mixes I use. That painted Coke is not very old and is faded so nothing will bring the red color back.

Thankyou! Iíll try and experiment with these as they are the ďback of my collectionĒ bottles. I love your collection and I aspire to have something similar to your set up that you posted in your album pictures! You really have an awesome collection of different assortments.
