    Mountain Dew no deposit no return bottle uncovered

    recently found this bottle when swimming , if you've seen my past posts I have a regular location where I routinely find dozens of 40's-60's era bottles . been there a few times this year but haven't found anything worth posting

    but I found this mountain dew no deposit no return the other day and knew there was one but had never found one until now . so not sure how common it is , this version is in French and English so its Canadian . says " ya-hooo " mountain dew and shows a hilly type image .

    have found mountain dew bottles here before but always the common 10 oz version that you see all the time and was returnable , never found a no deposit version

    Nice one! I think I may have seen one of these before, but they certainly aren't common at all.

    Nice one! According to 'Mountain Dew - Hillbilly Bottles' Dick Bridgeforth, that one is worth about 15$. There are 3 slightly different variations all from 1968. The book lists them as 'common'.

    this is also a Canadian version if that makes any difference , the 1968 date would seem right as it was found in a hole filled with 50's and 60's era bottles

    felt like I had seen one before too but considering I didn't find one in the wild until now , it can't be that common to find . unless you were to run into a 60's/70's era dump and it could be full of no deposits

    I still haven't found a crush international no deposit in the wild , surprised one hasn't popped up yet . although I've seen several for sale around here

    but I have found no deposits for - coca cola , pepsi , diet pepsi , Tab , Sprite , 7 Up , Patio , Fresca , Schweppes ,

    and always finding no deposit bottles at this location which have no embossing , unsure who used them, maybe a store brand ? also a local which used a no deposit bottle for a short period but had a paper label
