    I think they just want your 2¢ worth.

    Our new friend isn't entirely insane...here is a link or two of pics..and some copy explaining a bit...

    http://www.antiquebottles.com/southeast/pic2/5centa.jpg

    "You've seen the 3 CENTA bottles, but here's the larger 12 oz 5 CENTA bottle that was made to compete with the 5 cent Pepsi and Coke bottles. The 3 CENTA bottle was made 1940-41 and competed successfully against the 5 cent Coke and Pepsi. The 5 CENTA bottle was made for only one year in 1942. People stopped buying it because they would rather have a Coke or Pepsi instead of a flavored soda, so the 5 CENTA bottle put the business under. The 5 CENTA bottles are rare, as attested by the $305 bid price on eBay. Info courtesy of seller, Henry Clay."

    Gunit,
    3 Centa was originated by The Budwine Bottling Co. in Athens, Georgia. It was a depression-era (and before) drink.
    Budwine was Athens' own soft drink. The Budwine company closed finally in the early 1990's because the company that bottled the stuff (Southern Beverage in Augusta, Georgia) went belly-up.
    The manufacture of 3 Centa was discontinued well before World War II.
    In addition to the Athens mother plant, the drink was made in several satellite plants, including the one in Macon. The old Athens bottling works burned recently (it was empty).
    Try Googling Budwine and see what you can gather from there. Gee, I wish I had a Diet Budwine (they made it!) right about now....

    jfitz,
    I think you left out an Upsilon or two.
