Here is the famous 'Swimsuit Girl' or 'Bubble Girl' bottle. 7up used this logo from 1935 up to the early 50's I think. Now if you will notice the difference between the two pics. The 1st pic is of what is called an '8 bubble' bottle. referring to the amount of bubbles in the red/orange portion of the ACL(applied color label). Up until the mid 40's this was the norm. Not sure how or why but some think that in the management of 7up someone finally said "Hey this is called 7up, why is there 8 bubbles on the bottle" From a certain point on all bottlers switched to the '7 bubble' design. The '8 bubbles' are more collectable and usually worth more. There are also some variants out there that are rare. 1st pic far right bottle, (it's hard to see) the swimsuit is all white. Normally the swimsuit is not colored. 2nd pic far right bottle. The '7 bubble' pattern is different. Both of those bottles are very rare.
