    Rare Orange Crush?

    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.

    The front. If anyone has seen one of these or knows the rarity of them, that's what I'm trying to find out.

    Wow, I was not expecting that! I got this for $8. Which book are you using? I didn't know there was an orange crush book (If that's what you're looking at).
