    7up- 1953-1986 Canada

    Well I'm still adding variations to my post swimsuit bottles...the shield was introduced on the bottle in 1953 I believe....this is what I have to date for bottles right up to 1984.


    The first bottles still incorporated a white shield on the neck and I believe that ended around 1962-63, on the 12oz bottle I always did like how the neck label has 'Fresh Up with'.
    Bottles are dated in order...1955, 58, 57. The bottles succeeding incorporated a red shield and also saw the introduction of the 10oz bottle..in what year? ..maybe 1962?. I have not been able to locate a 7oz to go with them yet. Bottles are dated 1966, 63.
    These are basically the 2nd and 3rd generation ACL's

    The use of the shield with bubbles was replaced around 1970 with a solid red background and along with it came the giant white vertically printed 7UP.
    On the 28oz I am pretty sure an example exists in Canada with out the white circle?...maybe dated 1971-72....still not sure if a 16oz was made that matches.
    These are what I would refer to as 4th generation bottles...they are dated 1970, 70, 71.

    Next in the series was the introduction of the 'MONEY BACK BOTTLE' and ml was also printed as Canada introduced the metric system.
    Also of note is the fact that the large size was reduced to 26oz from 28oz. I would think that somewhere my 26oz exists with oz's and ml printed on it...this bottle being dated 1974 was just at the beginning of the transition, the 10oz is dated 1975.
    So why the blank space?...I'm missing the 16oz!...and of course the 7oz....note: to date I have only seen the 16oz in advertising, the one pictured is from Winnipeg dated 1973.
    This is the 5th generation....while technically they are variations I choose to call them generations to better define them.

    This is the 7oz I just got...it is pretty much a 5th generation but the earliest one as it has 'return for deposit' on it, the year on it is 1972...I have also discovered a 10oz bottle on craigs list that has the same print!
    Just when you think you have it all figured out something pops up!...(pun intended)

    Here is a carton I have that is for probably both the 5th and 6th generation, although the 16oz carton from 1973 depicts a white background, there may have been some overlapping in the changes as they came about......I included the glass that was a recent find...love how it matches the carton!...too bad the bottles never shared the same ACL.

    On to the 6th generation and my newest edition the 750ml...it was cool to complete this series. The red shield has now been tilted to the right and the edges are now squared off.
    Another addition TO THE PRINT was the ' SEE CROWN FOR INGREDIANTS'
    Bottles are dated 1978, 78, 79, 79.........who knew the 7oz was still available in 1979?....also I am not aware if a 16oz was made in this generation.

    Here is the 1.5 liter that came out before the one pictured above...I would still call it a 6th generation but just a much earlier one ...it's dated 1975.

    And then the final is the 7th generation that saw the 7UP changed to run on a slanted angle and a revamped script that saw the red dot more integrated, as well as a revamped neck label once again.
    These are the only two sizes I'm aware of in an ACL...these are dated 1984 and 1981.

    Yea I sort of missed a series!...now that I have the 7oz with the 'return for deposit' from 1972....here is that 10 oz...and you say you have seen an 11oz with the same print?...you mean 26oz/750ml?....or could be 28oz.

    Yes I too love my 7up's!....although I think I only have a count at about 55 bottles. The diet 7up litre was a real surprise!...now I'm keeping an eye out for a 750ml to go with.
