New applied color label (acl) article
"The Glamorous Applied Color Labels"
By Bill Lockhart and Bob Brown
with contributions by Chris Weide and Russ Hoenig
I'm excited to share this notification regarding an Applied Color Label (ACL) article that Bill Lockhart and I recently completed and is now available for viewing. It was exactly one year ago this week that we started the initial research -- which continued throughout the winter of 2018 and spring of 2019, and was finally completed this past summer. As far as I know, it is the first article of its kind to fully explore the history of the ACL process. A great deal of time and research went into the project and we hope everyone who reads it will learn something new and informative. Please feel free to ask me anything you want about it, and I will do my best to answer your questions. The article is on the Society for Historic Archaeology website and can be found via the following link. The link connects to the Glossary section -- and all you need to do is scroll to the ACL definition where you will see the link to the ACL article just to the right of the Mission Beverages bottle. The reason the note and article link are so small is because it was necessary to 'squeeze' it in without disrupting the entire page. The article is in a pdf format and can be downloaded, printed, etc. The only thing we ask is to cite the source if/when sharing the article with others. The source, of course, being the SHA website. If you are not familiar with the website, this will be a good opportunity to explore it. It is the most extensive website of its kind and contains just about everything imaginable related to bottles.
Here's the link to the Glossary page ...
Please be sure to scroll past the Acknowledgments / Sources where you will find three Appendixes titled A, B, and C. Appendix A will be of particular interest to 7up collectors and/or sellers.
