Cobwebs on the back in corners - removed. On back there is discoloration and rusting on edges. At left of center there is a light green tint to sign, unsure if it is manufacturer error or from wear.

Notes Herb Bishop created Squirt in 1938 in Phoenix, AZ. Bishop's intention was to create a drink that had less fruit and sugar than other sodas. In 1977, Brooks Products, a Michigan bottler, purchased the company. Today, the company is a part of Dr. Pepper/Seven-Up company.
