Found these with cokes and pioneer valleys about the same age...Nationals of most interest.
2 different bottom marks.
Do tell if you recognize them.
Did try some research to no avail.
TY!

I think they're from the 1960s, the bases that I can see look like they're marked 1962 and 1964. Never heard of the brand, probably a small local bottler.

First National was regional. Mostly a supermarket with its own store brands as well as the nationals. I live in central CT and I remember them in the 1960s as well. Welcome to our online community repete.

First National Stores Inc. also known as Finast. It looks like they had a distribution plant in Boston. It makes sense if you are finding Pioneer Valley bottles as well.
