POP bottle Nu IcU

Posted by BarbAok (My Page) on

I dug up an old pop bottle. It has the name Nu Icu On the side at the very bottom of the bottle it says Pittsburg Kans. Is it worth anything?

Never heard of that name, maybe a local bottler? Would probably be worth most around that town, maybe $5-10 in good shape? Some rare local bottles in my area can sell for $20 or more (sometimes much more) you just have to find the few serious collectors.

RE: POP bottle Nu IcU

Barb, don't know if it would work, or not, but my first thought was how about calling the Chamber of Commerce in Pittsburgh, KS? Maybe they have a date when the bottler was in operation or a name of an owner, or something. Just a thought... Have you found out anything on it yet?

RE: POP bottle Nu IcU

I know this is kind of late, but NU ICU appears to have been a National bottler. Bottles distributed from
RHW - Moberly, MO
So Brewer ME
Whistle Company Salisbury MD
Wilmington, DE
Indianapolis, IN
Austin, TX
Effingham, IL
as well as Pittsburg, KS

RE: POP bottle Nu IcU

This is really, really late. But I found a Nu Icu bottle in Franklin Co., VA (Smith Mountain Lake) in the 80's. The bottle includes the text that the bottle design was patented March 9, 1920

I have also found one today (3-18-11) in Taylorsville, NC.
Looks like these might have been a lot of places. Mine says, Flavor you can't forget. Same patent as the others.

RE: POP bottle Nu IcU

My husband found a bottle the other day(5-24-11) with Nu Icu on it. I was wondering if anybody had anymore info about it and what it might be worth. We are in Stony Point, NC.

RE: POP bottle Nu IcU

I have a bottle in excellent condition that was made in either Janesville or Madison, WI March 9, 1920. Both cities were on the bottle.
