Coca-Cola Commemorative Bottles List:

Bootleg and Prototype Bottles

"The supply of unauthorized and prototype bottles seems to be endless, and it is up to the individual collector to decide if they wish to pursue collecting them, or not. Bootleg bottles are also called "third-shift" bottles, and the most common type  are the green bottles which have the same painted labels as the "correct" bottles. They also can be produced on other colors of glass, for example, several of the amber 75th Anniversary bottles can be found in both green or clear versions.

Another type of bootleg bottle is one that has been altered from its original, such as missing logos, or a combination of two different bottles put together, such as a No-Logo bottle applied with the Coke logo, or other bottles that were never authorized, or approved, by the Coca-Cola Company.

Prototype bottles were created as a test, or a bottle created but never approved, or produced. Usually these bottles are one-of-a-kind, or one of very few.

These bottles vary as worth whatever someone is willing to pay. It is simply a matter of supply-and-demand.
