RARE BOTTLE CAP Gay-Ola Soda ERROR CAP Early 1900s Glasgow KY Antique COCA-COLA
January 17, 2019
Offered for sale is the shown original “Gay-Ola” Soda Bottle Cap from the Glasgow Bottling Co. The cap appears to say “Glasgow NY” across the bottom. However the town Glasgow, NY does not exist. So we are a little puzzled by this. One theory we have is that the cap was misprinted, and the “NY” should be KY. We do have documentation that the bottling plant existed in Glasgow KY in 1907. In the last photo is a copy of the State Auditors Report from Kentucky. In this photo at the very bottom “Glasgow Bottling Company” is listed as a business with an established date of 1907 next to it. This further supports the theory that the cap came from Glasgow, KY. Gay-Ola soda was produced from 1911 to the early 1920’s. The company was sued by Coca-Cola and were forced to change the original printed Gay-Ola logo. The original logo is shown on this cap, not the second. This information supports the fact that the cap is around 100 years of age. A very rare find! Impossible to find another one anywhere online. A must have for the right collector of Gay-Ola bottles. Cap is not bent and has original cork inside the cap. Cap may have never been on a bottle, but unable to prove this. Cap was found recently in Glasgow Kentucky. Another one may never surface again, so don’t let this one get away! A little info about Gay-Ola soda found online. It’s rare to ever find anything on Gay-Ola due to the fact it did not last long as it was taken off the market. This soft drink can be traced back to Diva Brown’s formula originated with J. The Gay-Ola trade mark was registered on Jan. Their sales began in sky rocket and The Coca-Cola Company took notice and took the company to court. They won the first court case but lost an appeal and then was forced to change the script logo. But that was not the last of it, as the Coca Cola Company continued to take Gay-Ola to court charging unfair competition due to the diamond shaped label.
