    This is a pretty typical (I suppose) wooden crate that would have held a case (4 six-packs) of PEPSI-COLA returnable/refillable bottles. Being in remarkably good shape, I suspect it actually spent most of its life holding somebody's garden tools or something in a garage instead. Yellow and blue paint on its outside is only slightly worn, reading "PEPSI-COLA GENERAL BOTTLERS, INC." on its ends. Inside both sides it is marked "STURDY-BILT BY SOUTHERN WOODEN BOX INC. JONESBORO, ARK." with a date "5-66".

      Nice! I collect Pepsi bottles & other related stuff. I have about 6 or 7 of these in various condition. Yours is in great shape. Very common.

      Back in the day, people used any item for storage and never realized it would have any collectible value later!
