Notes: Rolling Rock began in 1939 and this 1942 bottle is the earliest bottle I have ever found from them. It is incredible that this bottle survived laying the woods for 77 years with the ACL labeling still intact. A large fallen tree might have helped protect it from weather. Note there is an Internal Revenue Tax Paid on the front. This was required on beer bottles and cans from June 1, 1935 to March 30, 1950.
