Drove over to Ohio yesterday and hit a few malls, found a few bottles. Never a lot out there it seems but did find 23, plus an older Pepsi Free/Pepsi gym bag that was a giveaway at a San Diego Padres game. I already had the Honey bottle in the third picture, but not the one that was just in white.

What color is missing on the Honey acl? I have a white label 7up that is just missing the red. Here is a pdf with an explanation.

Hi Robby

Just got home and took pictures of the two Honey ACL bottles. I've had the color label bottle for a few years and had seen the white label but never got a chance to pick it up. I've got one of the white label only 7up bottles, it's from Roseberg, OR. and the Coca-Cola distributor there must have also had the 7up franchise then. But the neck is embossed and off center from the label.

I like the embossed neck on yours. What is the year on the 7up? Can you post a picture of the base also please? That acl is definitely white, no question. My 7up acl was made by Owen Illinois in 1943. The plant code is 3 which was the Fairmont, W. Virginia factory. Here is a link to Sodabobs explanation of why the red is missing. He is an Acl master around here. Super knowledgeable!

I couldn't get a good picture of the base of the 7up bottle, I'm due for an upgrade on my cell phone soon and hopefully it will have a better cam.

I could be wrong on this, but took a look at the Owens-Illinois chart and the 23 indicates Los Angeles, but according to the list it didn't start operations until 1949.

Here's what's on the bottom though:

23 (O-I symbol) 4

10

4243 C

Looks like to the right is 4 with a dot after which means, 1944. Los Angeles Ca. Started bottling in 1932 - present.
