Cool stuff!.... yes it's crazy how many sodas had Lithium citrate in them, 7up being one of the big names with it.
So that one bottle you show with the base has a letter D= July/August ...I can't read the number though.
The number is 9. Every bottle has that. my assumption was 1939.
I didn't know that D was July/August. Thanks for that.

I thought I would share my bottles that are marked "lithiated". Maybe you already have these on your lists? I'll give the dates as well.

There are no known 1939 'letter code' bottles so that bottle would be 1949. All the late 30's bottles used a number prefix up to and including 1940 on some Dominion glass bottles, my earliest is 1938. 1=January, 2=February, and so on. Apparently on some Coke bottles with the number code the years go as low as 1932, I've not seen this for myself in person but seen online photos.

Wow! My list falls real short. I have never seen these ones before. Very nice.

Here is a few more lithiated sodas. I know i have more in storage. B-1 was lithiated. Well here are the ones i have out of storage... I like the cheer-up for hospital,home or general use.

Killer buy... Love the odd, little brands.. you did good.
Thanks! I like finding the small town bottlers bottles. May not always be the most valuable or collectible on a mass scale but each has a story. Designs and ACLs are usually pretty cool too. I don't shy away from buying a full case or 6 pk if I see them. I don't mind quart bottles either. I guess they all make me happy!

full crate of a small brand... gotta get it... that's a great display piece for a collection. Little piece of history that time has forgotten.
