The Mission Dry Corporation was franchised out of Los Angeles, California and Mission Beverages was bottled just about everywhere. I have in my collection Mission bottles that were bottled by four different St. Louis, Missouri bottling companies. As you see in picture #3 the companies are Hires, Moore Bros., Shamrock and Mission Orange. I am 99.9% sure that Moore Bros. and Mission Orange bottling companies came from the same location.The 7 oz. Charge Er bottle is the newest to my collection just being acquired last week. I had been looking for a St. Louis marked Charge Er for a long long time. Now I need a St. Louis marked Charge Up.
The Royal Punch paper sign is somewhat common and have had it for years.
Also two Mission coasters round out my Mission collectibles.
