Cynic, I do remember the 3rd from the left. Yes, it was glass, yes it was 5¢, don’t know what was in it. Sometimes there was a 2 for 5¢ special if you were good enough to pull 2 out of the steel rack at precisely the same time.

Really? Dare I ask .... how old?

Born in ’49. The short, thick, sea green coke bottles were around quite a long time. The chest type pop machines, just as long. In the early 50s, a nickel and dime bought a lot...a lot.

and the ¢ sign was seen everywhere. Now, quickly, look for it on your keyboard...heh heh

Dude! Totally hated it when they hid/got rid of the cent symbol when they did away with typewriters. I remember when it shared a key with the fractions. I think it was the fractions.
