A friend of mine dug this green crush bottle. Don’t see any similar ones online with the crackle all over and the swirl area at the top. I know the orange crush experts are on here including the gentleman who write an OC book. Any info for me on this one?

Nice deco bottle! It's almost certainly not an actual Orange Crush bottle per se, these are referred to as flavour bottles. When you see "Bottling Co" after the brand's name it usually means that the franchise bottler was named "Orange Crush Bottling Co" but put out their own unrelated flavours as well, which were sold in bottles shaped differently than the branded ones. It's most commonly seen with Coke franchises but the other major brands did it as well. Your friend's is one of the nicer examples I've seen, since it's got the full deco embossing and it's green.

Thanks for info. Sort of a “Whitelabel” Crush bottle. He found three of them actually in south Jersey.

Hi Csa.... I don't have a lot of info on your bottle except it is not an Orange Crush drink, but rather a bottle produced for another brand by an Orange Crush bottling company. The bottle is shown on p.112 of my book and described as you have done so... it is a 28oz. bottle. The bottle which you show looks like it might be a smaller version. At the time of writing of the last edition of my book, I gave it an price range of $75.00.... hope that helps a bit. My book - the only one on Orange Crush bottles - is available to you directly if you contact me.

Thanks. These bottles are 6 1/2 oz each. Great info from the members as usual.
