#DC197 - Wm. A. Gerbering Valley Springs Milk Bottle Cap - Tuberculosis Related
#DC197 - Wm. A. Gerbering Valley Springs Milk Bottle Cap - Tuberculosis Related
Vintage 42mm diameter cap from around 1930 from the Wm A. Gerbering Dairy in Valley Springs, California. Nice colorful deco look. Rare cap. They are marked "From Non-reacting Cows" which was to insure people they had been tuberculosis tested. This was a widespread concern in the 1920s and 30s when it was realized that the disease was, in part, being spread by cows. These came from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist, who had one of the best milk bottle cap collections in the country. Excellent unused condition, but does show staple rust as you can see in the picture.
