    Beer Bottle (Gerresheimer Glas)

    I am having some difficulty learning about this bottle. The maker's mark appears to be "G" beneath crown. I believe the manufacturer is Gerresheimer Glas. Any thoughts on if this manufacturer is correct and which one of these numbers is the date code?

    IDK about the date code but the stipple effect on bottom has me thinking fairly new.

    Yes, definitely very new. I can't understand anything on the base apart from 0,375l which is obviously the contents, but I doubt it predates the 1960s and could be much newer than that. I don't see anything to suggest that it couldn't even be from our current decade.

    Thanks for the input. This bottle was just different enough that I had to research it a little bit before throwing it in the recycle.
