I'm going on an assumption that that the 7 to the right is indicating 1947....based off dating other bottles, and the fact the brown ribbed was not used past 1955.
You are exactly right. After closer inspection, there is a very small 4 beside the seven. I feel kinda silly for not seeing that. Wasn’t the brown ribbed bottle used till the mid 70’s?

No not at all...it's last days were in the mid 1950's.

Ok.. I have a brown bottle with a 1974 date? Maybe it not the date code I thought.

Hi again Johnnycrush.... just a brief followup. Two amber krinkly bottles.. the 'squat' bottle in the center- .... tapered shoulders, ACL below centre.... most are from the Country Club Soda Company, Springfield, Mass. Height is as you measured, 75/8" is shorter although the base is standard at 23/16" Mr.Crushy arms are over head or extended.

Hi again Johnny Crush.... I reread what I wrote and reviewed your pictures. Yes, the height of the so-called 'squat' bottles is 75/8". The KEY to these bottles is the front ACL is NOT centred and lies below the midpoint of the body of the bottle. Mr.Crushy, arms over head or extended both occur with the squat, as the presence of absence of contents on the front ACL. The shoulders are tapered.

Hello Michael,
Thank you for your continued interest in my crush bottle. Hopefully the picture I posted shows well. The acl is placed about 2 1/8 inches from the base of the bottle and about 1 1/2 inches from the top rib. The picture also shows the total height of 7 7/8 inches a little taller than the squat bottle.

I have one it’s a beautiful bottle I assumed it was from the 50s not 100% sure but when I was a little boy I drink orange crush and I wish I was drinking it out of that brown bottle with the orange soda in it and the texture of the bottle. I love that bottle
