I have a 7-up bottle I'm trying to identify. Its 7 ounces. It has 1 G 63 stamped on the bottom and a 53-700 on the bottom too. Can anyone tell me what this means and the date and possibly where it was manufactured?

Mystery Solved

    Your bottle is called the "Non-Swimsuit, Seven Bubble" variety which was used between 1955 - 1964. The 1 G 63 is the date code, yours was manufactured in 1963.
    Your bottle is refered to as an ACL bottle, which stands for Applied Color Label.
    The 53-700 is probably the bottle makers control code #. If it is not on the bottle, it will be very difficult to pin down where it was manufactured or bottled. Many 7UP bottles from that era had the bottling plant either on the ACL back label or embossed on the back base, however, some did not.
    hope this helps.
