Without any other numbers on the bottle I guess it will be hard to determine the year. In a sense they are mold numbers, except that all bottles with a number 1 were of one experimental glass formula as were the numbers 2 through 6 of various other formulas.
And then after a predetermined period of time they were able to track which bottles held up the best.
"Hey, just a question, has anyone ever saw an RC bottle ACL older than a 1936?
I know there was major discussion last yr about the earliest RC cola bottle. Plus, you will also discover the earliest date found for Royal Crown Cola is 1934.
I skimmed thru all the old threads to refresh the memory. There was an earlier Royal Crown Ginger Ale, but its the Cola that applies here. Its possible that Laurens Glass Works was conducting an experiment similar to what the Root Glass Company did prior to 1909 when large single-digit numbers were embossed on the base of early Coca Cola bottles.
You can reread the other threads and see what you can find, but I'm pretty sure the results will be the same.
I don't know if this bottle will shed any light on the subject or not. Normally I'd say single digit numbers like that are mold numbers, but the odds of finding sequential mold numbers in a single dump seem astronomical to me, suggesting that the numbers might very well be codes for 1932,1933,1934,1935, and 1936. (Please note the question marks) [:)] This is from dvb1919's thread. iggy Based on everything I recall about dating Laurens Glass Works bottles, I'm confident the numbers 1 through 6 are mold numbers and not dates.
dbv1919 ~ Started in May of 2014 https:// ~ Started in October of 2014 https:// received another communication from the e Bay seller of my clear RC bottle and they informed me that they dug several of the same type of bottles except that where mine has a 2 the others have 3, 4, 5, and a 6.
