    Re: 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.

    Re: 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.

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

    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...

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

    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?...

    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,...

    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...

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

    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...

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

    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...

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

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

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

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

    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...

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

    They had been using a G on the lip as a trademark, which is why it is larger and more prominent than the later G.

    They adopted the G in a square trademark in 1932 from everything I've read. Not...

    Re: Earliest ACL Royal Crown Cola redux

    I guess it is all in how you read that line. They aren't saying that they aren't certain that G means 1935. They aren't sure of the reason why that year was chosen to start the coding, and assume...

    Notice the artistic representations of the bottles and more importantly what is on the reinforcing ring as we are calling it. It appears that they used the G on...

    I don't think I would get that drawn into that number on the reinforcing ring. If that was a date code then my Royal Crown ACL bottle would be dated 1923. I think that number refers to something...
