Here is a 7UP bottle that I found while doing house renovations in New Orleans, LA. I've tried to find out more about it and an approximate value, but have had no luck. Here's some particulars:
8" Tall
Crown Top
Smooth Base with embossing
Embossed Text on Base reads:
DR. PEPPER BOTT. CO. NEW ORLEANS, LA. around outer edges
In center of base there is an embossed "7UP" (the "up" is underlined)
Above the 7UP, it is very difficult to see, but it looks kinda like a circle within a star, or between parentheses??? with a faint number 3 to the left and a 5 to the right of it.
Under the 7UP, there is a faint number 2 or 3 embossed as well

On the face of the bottle there is a painted white label: 7up ALKALINE REACTION THE GAS PURIFIES, with a white baseline.
Under the label there is a faint embossing which reads c67

There is a slight brown discoloration on the "S" of the word PURIFIES...see photos.
Otherwise there are only the slight scratches common with a bottle of this age.
