Yes belive it or not there is an old pop bottle out there somewhere with a value of 35,000, I used to bottle dig back in the 70s and have been looking for this bottle for over 40 years now.
There is not a complete one known in existance but i have seen two broken ones over the years one recoverd from Marley tip in Keighley and another also broken dug up on a tip in Silsden, If anyone knows of a undamaged example i know a bottle collector who is willing to pay 35,000 for it.
The bottle is a colbolt blue victorian codd bottle with a colbolt blue marbel and has Keighley coffee house embossed on it please let me know if you know of one

Yep that's the one middy that one was found on Marley tip in the 90s by a window cleaner from Ridelsden it was in about 50 bits when he found it but has been repaired useing resin to make up the missing bits but still worth a few thousand even in that repaired condition

What makes it so collectible hat is it's colour and it's rarety, Codd bottles that are aqua colour are only worth a few pounds i found a 10oz S Hoyle of Kighley bulb neck codd bottle some years back on a tip in silsden but it was olive green with an olive green marble so quite rare the bidding started at 650 and ended at 950 not bad for an old pop bottle

Well middy that is an easy question to answer (It is so you can have a game of marbles when you have drunk all the pop) Life is Good

OMG my Dad and I used to collect bottles, we definitely had the ones with the marbles, and some other coloured bottles. He walked them up under the stairs in our old house oops!
