Diving under a Pier in a historic port in Rhode Island, found a slew of old bottle. Some easily identified, others not so easy. Hoping to get some feedback on the age of this bottle. Reads "No deposit no refill" on the outer bottom rim, also "CANADA" on the surface bottom. Any info or help identifying age and pertinent info would be great!

    If it were full, I may have comments, but it's empty.

    A Labatts stubby, the shape of the bottle when I use to drink beer.
    The stubby beer bottle was used by the Canadian breweries between 1961 and 1986, replacing the old long neck beer bottle.
    The reason it says "No deposit no refill" is due to the embossed logo on the bottle, it was a private Labatt's mould. I have no idea what kind of beer might have been in it.

    Huh. I checked several websites that might feature this bottle, but came up empty. It is similar -- but certainly not the same -- as a Budweiser bottle used from about 1967 - 1970 (search "Budweiser bottle 1969" in Google Images). So perhaps it was a sister bottle to the Budweiser examples, offered around the same era by the same glass firm?? So that could suggest late 1960s, but might as well throw a dart at a wall....much conjecture there.
