    Here are a few pics of my double dot Pepsi Bottle. I have dozens of Pepsi bottles but this is my only double dot.
    Date is 1951
    Bottled in Montreal
    Note the dot above the top Pepsi logo.

    Canadacan, take a look at the side panel of the crate. Right above the word Beverages is the date stamp. It is 11/47.
    So I would guess this means the double dot was around Canada in 1947.

    Oh yes the double dot was around earlier than that, this is a late 30's to early 1940's paper label for straight sided 12oz bottles and was also used on the New embossed 'Wave' 12oz bottle in 1941.

    In 1944 or so, they came out with this new design.

    And then came the ACL's...I still can't explain the above label on 12oz bottle in ACL version from Quebec dated 1941 on the base.
    So your crate being a double dot dated 1937, it is possible it had 12oz paper labels in it...and probably latter the 10oz ACL's.
    We can confirm the Red and White ACL double dot was out in 1949 as seen in the earlier posted pic of an 8oz...Is there a 1948?..that I don't know yet.

    embe thanks for sharing! So I'm seeing your bottle is from Dominion glass, with a 9 for 1949 and a month code F for Nov/Dec, we now have 8oz, 10oz DD from 1949.
