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.

I found this which looks like it might be the same or similar bottle as the one I just posted from Yreka, California. However, the seller of the Yreka bottle did not say if his bottle had an embossed...
Thanks for the Info on Zetz CreekWalker. Will be looking out for more Zetz Bottles. I am sure there are plenty more. Just have to find them. There are old bike frames & old rusted cars from the 60's...
