Hi RobbyBobby.... your 7oz. amber, 'krinkly' Orange Crush bottle is one of two types that say 'Company Bottle' on the front ACL with two different Mr.Crushy figures at the upper apex. These two bottles are quite common. The clear, krinkly bottle is very basic and standard. What is of some 'concern' to me.... both these bottles are American and are capped with Canadian crown caps. The Orange Crush Bottling Works bottle is lovely - a 61/2oz, 1924 bottle manufactured by one of many Orange Crush Bottling companies, but NOT an Orange Crush drink. Incidentally, it also has a Canadian crown cap on it, indicating as well to me that it was refilled. They are however, three nice bottles, with that bit of info in mind.... Michael
Is the lemon lime cap also canadian?

Hi again, RobbyBobby..... you asked if the crown cap (Lemon-Lime) was Canadian.... my answer is yes.... This is evidenced by two things i) the white triangle was characteristically Canadian
and ii) Trade Mark Reg. is Canadian.... the Americans used Trade Mark Reg. U.S.Pat.Off
Hope that helps, Michael

Hi Guys!

These are classy bottles, indeed. A nice crossover are the Egyptian made Crush bottles in both English and Arabic from the '60s. ...Still, nobody is as classy as the Grandparents.:) --CT Len

Hi Bottle 2 Rocks..... nice bottles, especially the two Orange Crush on the left - the clear and the green. The other green one is beautiful, comes in clear and in larger size, but again is not an Orange Crush drink, but a drink of another company, whose bottle was produced by one of the Orange Crush Bottling Companies, of which there were many. I know nothing about that lovely Cola bottle..... keep on collecting. Michael
Yes the 3 to the right are OC bottling Co and didn't contain OC. Far right is a 3 Copper Cola from NC and pictures 3 policemen (coppers) and the cost of course was 3 cents (coppers), hard to get deco, which is all I collect these days.

Hi RobbyBobby.... a little delayed but I do want to comment on your two bottles..... firstly they are both American bottles. Secondly, they have been refilled as evidenced by the Canadian crown caps. These caps have a white triangle which only occurred on Canadian crown caps as well as Trade Mark Reg. which is Canadian. The embossed bottle with the circles is a 6oz. bottle from 1924.... this bottle is not an Orange Crush drink, but was produced by the Orange Crush Bottling Co. for another soda maker. As well, the crown cap on it is also Canadian.

Hi RobbyBobby,

Regarding your last thread to mine--(sure its a little delayed)--I got mine from a Gulf war vet. That's about 30-40 years in a not bottle friendly zone. I remember hearing Swahili spoken but not seeing bottle written appearing in our end of the planet. Congrats. --L
