Been collecting ACLs for almost 50 years. For several years was allowed into the local Pepsi plant’s warehouse to pick up cases of pop for my pop machine. Would generally look for the “Hillbilly “ Mountain Dew bottles when getting a case. Found this one, probably the most unique bottle I have.

don't imagine an unfinished bottle would be that common as you'd pretty much have to work at a bottling plant / glass making plant to have access to one . and back then I doubt many people would of wanted an empty unfinished bottle anyways

I was surprised that it made it into a case of filled bottles. You would think that as many steps the bottle went through, printing, washing, filling, packaging, somebody would have caught it.

Quality assurance didn't catch it. I'm curious what glass maker is on the bottom of it? I personally have about 18 Budweiser defect / sample bottles that never made it out of the factory lab.
