Good morning and Happy New Year.... your bottle with the 'footplate' is rather unique in the clear, krinkly bottles with O-C and 7oz. It is described at length on p.46-47 of my book, the only one on Orange Crush bottles.... in fact I have the exact same bottle in my pictures as you are selling.... although I have priced it at $50+. I think you should do well and wish you luck and will follow with interest...... it is interesting that the 'footplate' was actually the platform on which train engineers stood on when operating their locomotives. This lettering around the base has been called a 'footplate'.... I have researched this and do not know why. The back side diamond is the standard PAT'D. The footplate indicated the name of the bottling company and the geographic location, although the only ones I have seen are similar to yours..... good luck and will follow with interest. I have included a cover of my book, the only one on Orange Crush bottles, available on Ebay....Michael​
