4th Annual Lincoln Bottle Show
I'd recommend a Ph neutral glue rather than normal Elmer's. Something like a Jade 403. You won't see a difference between it and Elmer's in the next 10-20 years, but you might in 50...
i don't recall seeing it before , I'd imagine 7 up has used a few different logo's over the years as its been around for so long
I don't think that's a date code, the bottle looks too early for 1968 to me. I'd guess it dates to the 30s, but no clue what the cap said. If you want to find out, soaking the cap in lemon juice...
Never seen those before, cooler looking then the old or usual logo. LEON.
Hmm, well seeing as its not a super rare bottle I'll try it I guess.
Yep an Elmer's glue stick. Sometimes the best solution is the simplest one. If you want to needlessly pay more for some museum quality adhesive go ahead. I've used glue sticks on early 1900's bottles...
Very nice. Glad it survived and thanks for sharing it with us.
