There seem to be conflicts over when the 16-oz bottle of Coke was originally introduced.

Some sources point to 1961-62 as being the time when the pint-size bottle was put into production (regular production, that is), while other sources say the same size bottle was introduced in 1955. I also would like to know whether or not the 1955 and 1961 dates may refer to different versions of the same size.

Thank you,

Cans were first introduced in 1955 but I find no reference to 16oz. bottles that year, Colacorner.com says they were approved and produced for nationwide use in 1962.

Directly from a Coca Cola historical brochure, 1955 it is...
