Yeah, my grid Rumming's has a Consumer's logo on it. My orange peel one has the letters C.T.G., not sure what that stands for.My Island Bottling bottle seems to be marked 1943. Which is weird. So either I'm misinformed on when they switched dating systems from letters to boxes or somehow they used a bottle that was at least eleven years old when they started business. Or Island Bottling didn't take over from Rumming's like I was told it did. Am I right in thinking that letter-logo-number was used from 1941 until 1952 and letter-logo-box from 1953 on? My other Island bottle is dated 1960, and my Goodwill 1959. Is there any way to distinguish between decades using the box system? I know they switched to the D with a bottle in the centre in 1970 or 1971 but is there anything beyond that to tell the fifties apart from the sixties?Also, my Seven Up Vancouver bottle is dated 1949! Which means that Seven Up must have allowed franchises to compete with each other in the same cities.
