Label is much more greyed out/faded. It's a very unusual bottle embossed on one side with an 8 bubble ACL neck label on the other.

I think it's a 1937.

Very cool bottle. I have seen one or two with the neck like that. I agree on the 1937.

That is a great variation!...never seen an orange swimsuit! also the combo of the neck tags, one embossed...and quite low on the shoulder, and the other ACL.
Which glass plant is that from?

If that is a 'D' in the triangle. Would that be Dominion glass Co.?

In two years of looking at 7up bottles I hadn't come across an orange swimsuit girl.
Bottom says 4, triangle with an R inside, then 7.

Cool RCO. You lucked up finding that bottle out in the open for sure.
There seem to be so many variations of the early 7ups until 1940.
According to a few articles out there 1937 was the biggest year for variations on the bottles.

The oldest 7up bottle I have is a 1936 Amber paper label. I posted it on the large u7p thread. The label has some tears on the edges and the bubble girl is gone but it's 75% there. Including "The Howdy Co" on the bottom right of the label.
