Michael Rosman Orange Crush Bottles - Identifying & Dating
You are absolutely correct!... another collector that is on the same page as me. You posted my 1954 7oz Krinkly which was the last of those bottles, it's possible they made a few into 1955 because that was the transition year. If the bottle marked L64 meant 1964 on the back it'd be marked Crush International Inc ….in the summer of 1959 Orange Crush Company became Crush International Inc.I have the latest edition of the book. Still doesn't answer the main question I have here though. What proof (aside from the few "L64" stamped bottles in question) is there that there were amber krinkly bottles being produced past 1955, after the introduction of the Mae-West bottle?
Where are the krinkly bottles dated 1957-1963 (if L64 really means 1964)?
I still find it hard to believe that there would still be amber krinkly bottles being produced after the media blitz surrounding their "new amazing bottle" in the mid-late 50s. Companies that big have nationwide standardization guidelines to follow.
