Thanks very for the comment  Hmmm so that SS bottle could be a little older than I think hey...and now that you mention the 1920's and date codes, I believe most earlier bottles have no date codes...but that's not always the rule either. I have bottles with the IPG Triangle logo and no date on code on the lip...those I tend to date at 1926-28.There is numeral 1 embossed on this bottle and assume it's a mold # ?Plumbata said:Really nice work here, and engagingly presented. For what it's worth, I've dug those SS whistle bottles (same style, that is) in 1920s contexts, and from what i recall they had date codes from 1922 and 1923.
Makes me wonder what else they bottled?...have you seen these?...hope this link works! So I pretty much include the Kist with the Cross family of bottles being it's the only one I have  http://www.ecbw.ca/tim_ma...kist_canada_ltd_02.jpgCanadianBottles said:Hey, I didn't know about that one! I didn't know Kist was bottled by independent bottlers at all, all the ones I've seen have only mentioned Stratford. That's definitely one to look out for.
