    We have those WV symbols with a number inside on all of our cans here in OH I believe it shows how much the can deposit is? Does yours have a number inside? This is just a guess, anyone else see this?

    No, it's an excise tax on soda in West Virginia. It's just easier for them to put the info on all the cans, since it is a possibility that cans from that plant may be delivered to WV.

    Our 20oz and 1L have multiple bottle deposit states on them.. for the same reason. It would be a nightmare to produce bottles that would only be shipped to one state.
