Sold for A$405

Rowlands / Late / Rowlands / & Lewis / Ballarat / & / Melbourne // Evan Rowlands / (Shield) / Registered 6 January 1880 / (Miner & Farmer) / (Coat of Arms) / Trade Mark. Base: Codd's / Patent. (Victoria) Aerated Water Codd Codd original or one way pour. Applied top. Aqua. 10 oz. 233 mm. 1880s

Very Good. Deep 8 x 16 mm burst bubble to rear base edge is flaked around its edges. Dirty internally, this will wash out. Hazy throughout. A few pitted marks. Some fisheyes and impact marks. Some scuffs and scratches as well. Great embossing, there is some high point wear to be found. Lovely colour, lovely blob top, this is an early example and quite an odd looking one too with unusual shaped dimples, even the heavy embossing seems to be laid out a bit differently on the trade mark with the registration date being very curved. Grade: 7 Estimate: $150 - 200
