Just for the record / Update ... 1. Lane Bottling Works was established in 1900 (There are Lane's Hutchinson bottles)2. The earliest date I've found so far for Lane's Gold Seal is 1923 (And still searching for earlier dates)

Regardless of when it was published, whether in the 1910s or the 1940s, there should be a Lane's Gold Seal Beverages trademark registration out there somewhere. I've looked but have not been able to find one, yet.

Lastly ... (For the time being) Even though I have not found confirmation to prove it yet, I am leaning toward the possibility that Lane Bottling Works used the words "Gold Seal" right from the get-go in 1900-1901

I posted this link earlier, but this time I'm adding the copy/pasted text. Its an excerpt from a 1923 book about the history of Sioux City, Iowa. Maybe I'm imagining things, but the way it's worded it sure sounds like the author is saying that Lane's Bottling Works bottled Gold Seal Ginger Ale at a very early date, and possibly even as early as 1900. This might be the best I come up with as to how early Lane's used the words "Gold Seal"

[align=center]LANE BOTTLING WORKS Soda Water Manufacturers[/align][align=center] [/align][align=center]It is the long, hot days of summer when the name of Lane Bottling Works is best known to the people of Sioux City and the territory served Gold-Seal ginger ale and other drinks made by this company are well known. Cloudy orangeade is the orange drink that is made from orange fruit without any artificial oils or flavoring. This is one of the specialties of Lane's. The Lane Bottling Works was organized in January, 1900, by Fred W. Lane, who has directed the plant since that time. Only the purest of materials are used in the plant where every measure of precaution is taken to insure perfect sanitary conditions.[/align]

I hate to open a new can of worms, but it is what it is. Here's another Gold Seal brand which I have been unable to find a single reference for. Its ... Gold Seal ~ Fine Quality Beverages ~ Best in the Northwest ~ Vancouver, Washington

Note: "Lane's Gold Seal Beverages" was being produced at the same time "Gold Seal Fine Quality Beverages" was being produced by the Red Rock Bottling Company in 1948
