Hard to Find and Only Made for 2 years 1966 to 1968

I am still selling inventery from my long closed Antique Shop. This item today is a really cute small old-time green soda bottle. It is made in an unusual size and with NO NECK as most soda bottles have. This is the reason it is called the "Hand Grenade" bottle by collectors. It does hold a full 6 ounces. This one is rare because it did not go over very well at the time it was produced in 1966. Very few were ever made because people thought they were not getting enough for the money. It held the same amount as the old coke bottle.....but with no neck it just looked smaller. It only measures 5 1/8" tall. I show a photo of the bottle in my hand so you can get a better idea of the size. It is in very nice condition. No chips or cracks or scuffs and pristine clean.

This bottle is not extremely old but that is not what makes it so collectible. This was the first ever "No RETURN" bottle from any of the major soda companies and of course because of the shape of the bottle these are hard to find. The bottle has an embossed textured design with diamond shapes. There is lettering that reads "Cont 6 fl oz. and Dr pepper on both sides. Around the bottom edge it reads "No Deposit No Return". The bottom reads "Not to be Refilled. There is a number 1 in the very center of the bottom and the also seen is the number 15 along with date '67. I will be listing my very last one of these bottles in another listing. The lettering is slightly different.
