    Sorry, I meant month code. The combination of vertical and horizontal lines was used as a month code until 1969... according the the SHA site. But yeah, it really depends on the bottle, because the molds were often used until they wore out, and furthermore different sources seem to contradict each other on the timelines.

    On the regular Coke side it says:
    NI DEPOT
    NI RETOUR
    10 fl oz
    Coke
    TRADE MARK REG.

    the other side says:
    NO DEPOSIT
    NO RETURN
    10 FL OZ
    Coca Cola
    TRADE MARK REG.
    The seam runs all the way through the screw top.

    The logos and pixilated dots on the bottle are embossed.

    The bottom:
    COCA COLA LTD
    F
    U (not exactly a U but that is the closest symbol I can describe it with on the left side)
    a diamond with a dot in the middle in the centre
    a 9 to the right side
    A 6 on the bottom


    thanks again

    Ah okay, yeah I never paid much attention to those month codes. Looks like the evidence does point to it being from 1969. I wonder if any other brands used screw top NDNRs that early. I don't think I've ever seen one.

    I mainly consider them code for "disappointment"... because that's generally what I feel when I find a bottle with them. If nothing else it's an easy way to identify a modern dump.
