My wife found this bottle cap at a garage sale this weekend. She paid 25 cents for it. On the side it says it was bottled by the Dakota Bottling Company in Mandan North Dakota. Underneath it is lined with cork, so I'm guessing it is from the 50s or early 60s. It's in really good shape. No crease where it was opened by a bottle opener, and only a slight discoloration of the cork underneath. Pretty good find for a quarter!
