Many people have been asking about the age of the Coke bottle sent from the Beachcomber motel in New Hampshire. The simple fact is–none of us know its exact age. We do know that it must be at least 30 years old, and cannot be more than 50 years old. I am researching the date code stamped on the bottom of the bottle, and trying to get a date for the bottle itself, at least. Sadly, even when we learn the age of the bottle, we will probably never be able to determine the exact date when the message was sent, since it was not written on the message itself. But…doesn’t that just make the mystery all the more intriguing? 😉
Thanks for your questions and thoughts!
