    I have a 1950 Pepsi Bottle. BUT I have PEPSI spelled WRONG. It says PIPSI on the glass. My grandmother found the missed spending on the bottle.

      Deleting my comment doesn't change the fact that there is no misspelling on the bottle. It clearly says "PEPSI COLA".
      Sorry!

      The glass is impressed with the brand name, some spelled correctly, some incorrectly.
    3. noob, 4 years ago
      I meant to say impressed with the brand name multiple times.

      In this case, the name shown on the bottle is spelled correctly.

      I found misspellings for the name "Coca Cola" > https://nl.pinterest.com/pin/76279787409336029/

      For "Pepsi-Cola"> only this:

      Sorry, I wasn't clear in what I said. In this bottle, the second photo seems to me to show the glass impression on the shoulder of the bottle says 'Pipsi', while another impression in the third photo says 'Pepsi'.

      Anyway, KatrinaKay, we could probably guess what would result in a flaw like this. Bottles are manufactured by blowing hot molten glass into steel molds, then cooled with sprays of water. The mold (which is in sections) then comes apart and the glass bottle is released. This happens very fast with many molds, so that millions of bottles can be produced. All that needs to happen is the glass filling the three strokes in the 'E' for one bottle sticks to the mold, filling that little space where the molten glass for the next bottles would form the 'E' correctly. So every bottle afterwards blown into that mold on that production run would have the same flaw.

      Consensus - there is no misspelling on your bottle. :-)))))

      Efrsgirl I did not mean to delete. I am new I was trying to reply. On one of the Pictures. The glass says PIPSI. But the red and white label is Pepsi. Sorry I was confused.

      OK, thanks for telling me. noob explained how the image of PEPSI ended up appearing like PIPSI.

      I'm not as sure the edge of the I (E) would be so well formed if glass was stuck in the mold but guess it could happen, either way a nice Error example that we won't see often.
