After looking where I initially put this post...I believe this where is should of gone in the first place.
I am looking for some info on a bottle that my family has had for thirty years. It was found in the Northeast corner of Colorado. It is clear with embossed surfaces and lettering. It is approx 9 inches tall. It was 7UP, Sterling, Colo writing. There is a '48' on the bottom. I have searched the internet and have found no listing or anything close yet. Would like to know if there is any interest in it.
Most 7ups are green or amber.So, i think that the local bottler in that area made thier own bottles and design.It possible would have a good value in the fact that clear is not a common color for 7up's.Im not a pro on soda's but just giving my opinion but either way it is a very nice bottle.
Umm, Uncola... You're not helping yourself by dredging up these old threads. Try emailing the member, they may still have it. But they haven't logged on since 2004, like a bunch of people whose old posts you revived.
From what I've been reading, Vernor's went to a Soda Beverage Exhibition in New York in 1868. It was implied at this Exhibition where he got the idea to work on a Ginger Ale Formula & he did in 1868....
