    Hello, welcome to the site. KPP in an oval is a mark of the Kerr Glass Company. More famously known for making insulators. They used this mark from 1969 to 1973 at the Millville, NJ plant. You have a 1971 bottle. In the future you might find this website helpful for looking up marks.

    Yard sales and flea markets are the best bet. Along with being getting out there in the woods and actually poking around. Embankments along roads, hillsides in parks, old industrial sites, old hangout spots, are ideal. One day I'm going to post photos of a coke bottle I found in a coke oven!.
