I dug this 7up bottle few years ago & I have not found another one like it! Features 7 bubble label & neck label with 8 bubbles over swim lady with the line & diamond on the back label. Embossed on lower neck ring is 38 & what could be an "I". That doesn't make any sense cuz that back label wasn't used till 1940 & the Grenshaw Bottling company used a letter dating code & J would stand 4 1938 not I. I is for 1937! Any thoughts?

Do have a one of a kind? Is it valuable? I really love this bottle!

Nice, one of the first old bottles I found as a kid was a 7up. Sorry no idea on your other questions. Nice looking bottle, the ACL looks in pretty good shape as well.

I have several of these bottles. The odd thing is the date on the bottom. It shows 1927! Doesn't seem right but I can find out!

Impressive!! Nicely displayed! You've probably been an avid collector for many years! I agree, oh how I love the hunt!!! I dig dumps, privies, creek walk, old farms, estate sales, etc....Dont have any one particular bottle type I collect most, I'm crazy about all antique glass bottles!! Quackery medicine & embossed pharmacy bottles are what I have the most of & a small collection of ACL bottles (@100). Looking forward to hearing what u find out!!

Sure hope your glass shelves aren't overloaded... the wooden one is bowed... you might want to consider doing a load calculation on the glass ones.
Nice display.
