    0FD13E8A-D1DC-41CC-9848-395BBC72A425.jpeg hi everyone I found this bottle and wondered if anyone knew anything about it.
    All I think I can see on the bottle is
    04 O-I 87

    I don’t really know what any of it means and appreciate your help

    Probably 1987.

    Years ago when purchasing a bottle of beer or lemonade or similar you also paid a deposit in with the price.

    When the bottle was empty you took it back from where bought and got your deposit back.
    It encouraged recycling.

    Yours is non returnable so no deposit paid or collected.

    I used to earn more than my pocket money taking bottles back when I was a kid.
    Any Jewelry, Hayley91 and komokwa like this.
