I found only two OC bottles in the inventory at a yard sale. I paid a dollar each for them. Both are unique. First, a classic 6 Oz Krinkly (described on page 39 and fig. 16 on page 42 of Michael Rosman's Book, "Krinkly to Mae West." It is a classic clear Krinkly bottle, both sides identical with the embossed PAT'D, July-20-1920 Orange Crush Co Bottle. The difference is the content of the bottle is not included.

An 8 3/4" amber krinkly Tall Thin, 8 ¾" 6 oz bottle. I could find no description in Michael's book describing an amber krinkly bottle with the content described as "6 OZ" instead of the usual "6 FL OZ." I have talked with Michael via email and sent him images. He says he has not seen this bottle in all his years of collecting OC bottles. The bottle was made at the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company in Salisbury, NC. This ACL may be peculiar to North Carolina and this company's bottle.

Has any other collector seen this bottle? This may be a Rare example.

Yes, Ray... it is a rare bottle... emailed Ron B. about it and he has seen one before. Perhaps that bottle, which is from North Carolina is unique to a particular North Carolina bottle manufacturer... such as the Leaksville, N.C. bottles...
