These three Pepsi bicentennial bottles have been irradiated, and began showing up 3-4 years ago. Bottle will change color, but the label isn't affected. Coca-Cola bottle collectors have put up with this problem for many years. There are no original brown glass hobbleskirt Coca-Cola bottles but they show up a lot and unsuspecting collectors are ripped off.

Not counting the squat 7ups, I've also seen domestic 7 oz. ACL 7up bottles in brown glass, one from San Diego is legitimate but I'd be leery of any others from the US. There are a few non USA brown bottles though.
The bottles in the pictures you posted look to be a much lighter shade of amber, the bottle I bought (don't worry, it wasn't much) is much darker/deeper shade of amber, I'll be checking it out very close when it arrives.

I have those 3 bottles in the original clear glass. Never seen them nuked before. Yes the San Diego 7up amber is legit. Check out what one just sold for on ebay.
