    I have a few 7up bottles and questions

    Hi all. I have a few 7up bottles that I would like to figure out the manufacturing dates and any other information about them.

    This is an all 8 bubble 7up ACL. I have never seen another bottle with the "For the Health's sake don't stir or shake"
    ive seen "for the stomach's sake" before but not this variation.

    Hi, Is that a G in a square? Glenshaw usually date coded on the crown top with a small letter.

    Here is a link for the glenshaw glass coding. Nice Bottle. 8 bubbles are always good.

    Yes it does appear to be G. Could be a C. There appears to be a small G J embossed on the crown top.

    Using the Glenshaw chart would that make it 1938?

    Thanks Iggy. Yes I've read that one and no explanation of the "For the Healths sake" saying is given.
    Though given the original marketing as a drug cure it makes sense. It's just unusual even in the 8 bubble neck label 7up bottles.

    Here are some better images of the "For the Healths sake" bottle as well as another 8 bubble neck bottle with 700 G 8 embossed on the bottom as well as a small J on the crown top.

    I believe this to be a genuine paper label 7up. The age on the label looks correct. Unfortunately it is missing the bubble girl logo. I cannot make out a year on the label but it does say "the Howdy company" on the bottom right.
