    I just heard from the UK eBay seller and he said he can ship the bottle to California where I live for about $15 U.S. -- Still no bids yet so I'm going to place one later and see what happens.

    P.S. ~ P.S.

    The only date I can glean from everything presented so far is that the UK Schweppes bottle is Pre 1937. What say you?

    I just found this on David Whitten's bottle marks site. If its accurate, then the Schweppes bottle appears to be older than the 1950s or 1960s ???
