I know that the old hutches have them. It appears that post 1895 soda's had them, but I am not 100% sure when it started. I am curious to know the answer myself.

I have a bottle made in 1894 or 1895 with Registered on it.
Definitely seen by the mid 1890s, but I suspect it goes back to the early 1890s in some areas.
Registered probably meant the facility was inspected and licensed by a government entity to ensure product safety. Asfor it being mandated nationally, that'd be too hard to enforce. It may have been mandated in some counties or cities though.

Thanks for your messages guys. Those dates are helpful. Yes, maybe that is what registered meant. Probably meant it was a quality product that could be trusted. Or had to do with the trademark also.
