It may be a stretch, but wouldn't it be nice to be able to say "Families that Collect Coke together stay together?"The collector of soft-drink related collectibles usually gravitates toward the large group of Coca-Cola items available for collecting. Bottles and even cans make great additions to their collections. Coca-Cola is a well-known brand all throughout the world, and their bottle shape and signature logo are recognized by people of all ages and locations. In fact, little about them has changed since their debut on the market in 1916. Brand recognition of this product is so potent that "Coke cola" is the obvious synonym some use to mean any soft drink at all. The company is not entirely happy about other brands being called by their copyright, but it shows how pervasive their product really is. Coca-Cola bottles appeared some time after the Atlanta, GA druggist John Pemberton whipped up the first batch in 1886, and sold it for five cents per glass at the soda fountain in his pharmacy. The familiar name signature is a copy of the exact handwriting of his accountant, Frank Robinson. Records indicate that Robinson is the one who actually picked the name as well. In 1884, a man named Joseph Biedenharn sent the company marketer samples of bottles sodas, but it took five years before these were sold commercially. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in business it can cut into sales when competing products are too similar.
