I just pulled this one out of the lake yesterday if you saw my other thread , its label appears to have survived rather well down there , some fading and such .

know its not a very old bottle , likely from late 70's or early 80's maybe ? not sure it only has 300 ML and French and English on bottle . not sure how late they used glass money back bottles here

I like the look of it for some reason , the red dr pepper logo and design of the glass bottle . rarely find old dr pepper bottles here , often see modern cans and plastic bottles but never anything not modern . never found this one before and not sure if I've even seen it before either

Wow that's pretty good shape for coming out of the water! I've never seen that design either, probably a pretty short-lived one from right around the end of reusable glass soda bottles.

it was a surprise as the labels on everything else there were ruined

the bottle seems common in the US but not sure if the Canadian version is that common , never really seen it before and surely would of seen it sooner if it was

I mean they’re common in the USA but yours have the measurement in ML and the American ones use FL OZ so that’s pretty cool I guess
it would seem the Canadian ones are slightly less common , not really sure when Dr Pepper became popular in Canada or widely distributed , not sure how big it was here by the 70's
