What first led me down this path of discovery was a small piece of glass I found washed up on my local creek with the word “where the surface of the hot, just produced bottles, were sprayed on the body, shoulder, and neck (not base or the top of the finish) with a stannic chloride (Tin (IV) chloride) vapor that allowed the tin to bond to the outer surface providing scratch resistance and durability to the bottles." (Lindsey, B.) Though this process is still in use today, the word was embossed on bottles only between 1940 and the mid-1950s (Lindsey, B).

Therefore the piece of glass I found was manufactured using this process somewhere in that time frame.

Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola didn't always adhere to the Owens-Illinois policies, and often had their dates on the heel, and not the bottom, of the glass.

However, use of the period after the one number date code in the 40's, and use of the two digit year code was inconsistently used by various production plants, therefore the 9 alone doesn't always mean 1939 with absolute certainty.

(Lindsey, B) There is one factor, though, we have yet to consider: the thickness of the glass.

I’ll gloss over all that and share what seems the most accurate. You can guess from the title of machine what it did.

The automatic bottle-making machine revolutionized the industry, and became the foundation of today’s glassmaking industry. forming the company it is now (with a few changes along the way).

In 1941, the United States of America formally entered World War II on both the Pacific and European fronts.
