Really enjoyed reading this older thread. Lots of good information here.
Thought I’d share this green 10oz which is Canadian and stamped from Toronto on the base.
Not sure if it’s common in this colour, but it displays well in this green. 0B23068C-8016-465A-B516-9C0AC90EFA38.jpeg

Nice, I don't think those are particularly common. I've never seen any Royal Crown Cola bottle in green that I can remember.

Thanks iggyworf! Seeing your bottles (green tinged:)) and knowing the dates helps reconfirm what I now know...and my 10oz is also dated 1968!..great year!..that's my year :)
I never really pursued RC but in the last couple of years I've come across stuff so it's ended up in the collection. I'm not sure why RC had such a late entry into Canada but suspect it did not want to compete with Kik cola in the 40's and 50's.
I sure can see the appeal of the older RC American bottles!...some fantastic ones they are!
I don't recall those type of RC bottles in Louisville Kentucky only the very newer ones but most of them look different than those around here but I do know the older RC from around here it's from the thirties and it's a really cool bottle totally different than anything that is shown here and it was a silk screen was a nice-looking bottle the earliest one I've ever seen around here but I think those bottles are pretty neat I've never seen RC that look like that in Louisville Kentucky nice job keep on looking keep it digging that's what this Hobbies all about variety awesome thanks for the pictures

don't think I've seen royal crown in green before either , have obviously seen the clear version of that bottle . don't really have any royal crown bottles at the moment .

as they only sold cola ? does seem different for it to be in green , cola normally in clear bottles , unless they had other non cola flavours at some point

do have a couple different cans in the garage though , might be 4 or 5 different ones , some say RC cola

It's been a long while since I've added anything to the RC family!...still hunting for a green 10oz!...lol
Recently I was able to add one of those little 8oz bottles dated 1960, and a quart dated 1966,
both are from the Dominion glass co.
There is no marking on size so I'm assuming it's a 26oz.
