Just got this amber orange crush bottle, but I've never seen one like this. I did some research, but I couldn't find a bottle similar to this one. It's from the Elks Bottling Works in Leavenworth, Kansas. The thing that makes this bottle different is that the colors on the back are reversed. Usually, there is white lettering, but this one has amber letters. I have found a few bottles from Leavenworth, but none had the same color on the back. It is dated either 1939 or 1949, but I'm thinking 39. The Angelfire website on this bottle style didn't mention this style. In the first picture, the bottle in question is on the right, next to a the common style.
