    Weird Pepsi Cola bottle

    Yes it was from a set put out several years ago which included a repro straight side like bottle, and red white a blue acl version, a twist style bottle, and this one.

    Hobbleskirt Coke with 1916 date error

    If you will notice the date on this rendering from a 1917 introduction ad for the bottle. The date is 1916. Maybe the memo sent to the creator of this graphic and that bottle had a typo.

    Good job Carling, that's what we've been needing, artifact evidence with which to make educated hypotheses.

    I don't think there is a G used on the bottles from 1932 until 1935. Like I said the use of that G was their trademark until they started putting the G in a square on their bottles. It may turn out that there wasn't a code for 1935; however, it makes perfect sense for the glass company to start...

    Here's another possibility to drive Soda crazy. If G1 isn't the first then is there a possibility that there is a GG for 1935 since the other codes start with a G and then include another letter? They would have had to avoid confusion with the earlier G embossed bottles.

    Here's the thing. He went to the factory in 1989 many years after they stopped using this code. Most likely he talked to some old timer there who informed him of the code and it's meaning; however, this old timer wasn't there in the 1930's when the double digit code was used, as apparently they...

    While still working the possible transition bottle angle I ran across this post in the original thread. This is a green glass RC in pointed pyramid embossed bottle from Owens Illinois dated 1937. So this means that G 1/I could indeed be GI, and that my bottle could be a very early 1937 bottle...

    Just working a possible transition from 1936 to 1937 angle, could you get us a better photo of the 1937 bottle right beside the 1936? The one with the crud in the neck. I can't be sure what I'm seeing on that embossing due to that stuff.

    I was referring to the pointed pyramid with no star which if their claim is correct is a 1937; however, I don't think it works out from a neck embossing evolution standpoint. Yeah I realized that the 1939 was the first year of the neck acl, and the only year to include the RC under the arched...

    Those aren't my bottles they were the ones from the original poster.

    All the while ignoring the August 1931 ad which clearly shows the G embossed in the lip of the bottles.

    "The letters began to advance in 1936", which means that there is an H which appeared in 1936, making 1935 a G.

    For reference sake here is the lip of my suspected 1935 Royal Crown Cola bottle. It doesn't appear to be a clearly embossed as the G1/I from the Upper 10 bottle, and I dare say the 1/I is shifted a bit higher than the G. Could be a trick of the eye.

    [attachment=Royal+Crown+Bottle...m+May+2014+(3).jpg] While Squirtbob makes an excelent examination, he has forgotten to acknowledge the actual evolution of the Royal Crown Cola bottles themselves. I don't think that the G1 we are looking at is actually GI which would mean that my pointed...

    The September 1932 ad. So this means that they hadn't used G on the reinforcement rings of their bottles for nearly three years prior to their alphabetic dating code adoption. This I suspect is the real reason for G1 being on the 1935 dated bottles. This also means there should be an H and an I...
