1960âe(tm)s MOUNTAIN DEW Soda Bottle (unique with flaw)

Upper 10


This auction is for THREE vintage green soda bottles.

These three green soda bottles are all 10 Oz. in size. All three bottles are green glass and is about 2 1/4" diameter x 9 3/4" tall . All three bottles have white advertising and two have red also. You can be a better judge of the condition than I can, I tried to show the bottling flaw in the neck of the Mt. Dew and I think you can see it in the bottle.

Mountain Dew Soda Bottle

The first bottle is a collectable 10 Ounce Mountain Dew soda bottle of green glass and with a red and white Willie on the front and back. Marked with âeoeFowlerâe(tm)s Beverages Charlotte, N.C.âe

The neck of this bottle was produced and distributed with a very obvious flaw in the glass, it cannot be felt outside the bottle but it is a small bump on the inside, like a glass drip. Still overall the bottle is in very good condition with little wear and very minor surface scratches. It is a genuine one of a kind bottle ; no other has this big flaw, you should be able to easlily see the flaw in the photos provided.

Bottom has âeoe10 FL OZS.âe across the top rim and below that is what appears to be a backward J and the number âeoe63âe following. The bottom rim has a âeoe3âe then a space followed by âeoe802âe.

On the neck of this bottle is a white painted hillbilly holding a jug of Dew and the Cork has just shot through the top of his hat and put a hole in it. This same guy is on the front and again on the back of the bottle on the neck.

On the wide part of the back of the bottle is the same guy, a bit bigger, and the words âeoeItâe(tm)ll tickle yore innards!âe and below that in the fine print is âeoeU.S. CERTIFIED COLOR ADDED 1/10 OF 1% BENZOATE OF SODA ADDED.

On the wide part of the front of the bottle is the words âeoeMountain Dewâe across the top of the graphic with the letter R in a white circle just below the w in DEW. Below the word Mountain is the words âe Fowlerâe(tm)s Beverages Charlotte, N.C.âe the rest of the picture is the standard graphic of a Hillbilly pointing a rifle at a man with a rifle running into an outhouse with the crescent moon on it with a little pig watching behind the square box with the small words âeMADE FROM FLAVORS SPECIALLY BLENDED WITH MOUNTAIN WATER IN THE TRADITIONAL HILLBILLY STYLEâe
