Full, unopened, 10 FL oz sugar free, TAB bottle. It has bumps throughout the center all the way around the bottle, with snowflakes embedded in circles around the bottle as well. The most unique thing about it it's deformed, maybe a factory error, FLAT ON ONE SIDE. The attachments have numbers and leters on bottom.

IS it a screw top? Looks 70s to me. Defects don't in my experience increase the value of a bottle. Even backwards letters and misspelled towns. Still they are unique. Full flat sided tab is very cool. Thanks for the post.

Possibly exposed to just enough heat from a dump fire to cause slight slumping? I agree with Robby on the 70s date. It would be unusual in a bottle plant to have this type of manufacturing defect by this time in ABM production.

I still remember some bottles i bought as a kid with a slight flattened side but that is pretty extreme. Also a soda bottle that is full does not mean it was bottled back then. Anybody with a little knowledge a cap, bottle and capper can fill it. I have loads of full sodas far back as 1920s and i always wonder about some of them.

It's a pop top
