1st one of these Orange Crush for me

I got a few nice things yesterday out of a local estate. I have never run across one of these No Deposit No Return Orange Crush before. It's code dated 1967 on the bottom. Anyone know anything about these ? I would think they would be scarce or at least they have been to me.

    And these two were on the top shelf out in aold shed. I love the Double Cola but I can't find this slogan listed. It would be from the 40's would be my guess as they went to blue I believe in the 50's. bob

    Great finds Bob!

    You see, we learn something new every day, in my 20+ years of soda bottle collecting, this is the first I've heard of a No deposit No return Orange Crush bottle. It probably wasn't a success as there are next to none around!

    I'll forward this post to Michael Rossman, he's a guy here in Montreal that wrote a book on Orange Crush, we'll see what he says!

    Come take a look at my French Canadian bottle forum here

    Oh, and always looking for Quebec bottles ;-)

    Frederic.

    Crush ND/NRs aren't dirt common; however, they do show up. I have two of them and need the squatty amber version.


    According to Michael Roseman's book the amber crush is valued from $25-$50, however, I think I gave twenty for mine. He lists the clear squat for $20-$30, but I've seen them for a bit less. The clears seem to be more common than the ambers.

    I've seen the Missions before, actually I have an early acl one of those from Roanoke, VA. I'm guessing someone wanted to try to give some compition to the Brierlys bottler in the area. It's also a fairly unusual black acl.

    Thanks for the replies I think the OC is neat looks like I would have seen one by now . They must be a lot scarcer in my area than other places. I have seen the clear just not the amber. Was the Mission Milk Bottle type used before mission came out with a regular Soda type bottle ? bob

    I would have to say that it was being used during the Mission Orange period which corresponds with the Mission Sparkling Dry era during the 1930's, when they were selling both of these drinks. The Mission Beverages line really didn't show up from what I have been able to ascertain until the late 1930's and early 1940's.

    I have a letterhead from the California Crushed Fruit Corporation dated 2-28-29 which has both the Mission Sparkling Orange Dry and Mission Real Fruit Juice (sweetened) on it, they also claim to be the makers of "Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon Juices and their By-Products". It appears that they bottled the Orange, Grapefruit, and Lemon non-carbonated juices in these milk style bottles, and bottled the carbonated versions in the black glass paper label bottles.

    They also changed their name to the Mission Dry Corporation in 1930. Which would explain the M. D. C. embossed on the base of my bottle. Your's most likely pre-dates mine due to the embossing instead of an acl.
