I am considering buying a rack of Shell Penn embossed tall oil bottles in a carrier, but I do not know if any might be repops. They look to be in excellent condition.

Were there any reproductions made of these?

Was at an antique mall one time and seen one that the guy claimed was a reproduction but i am not sure and he wanted 25 bucks for it. I don't collect much glass so i passed.
So it is possible that there are repops. Someone is bound to know on here but it isn't me. Good luck

The Tiolene repops are fairly obvious.

I have been told that repop Canadian versions have no date embossed on the bottom.Every one I've ever seen is dated 1933.Do the Shell-Penn have an embossed date as well?

I am not a bottle expert, but If there are no obvious wear marks on the bottles (especially the bottoms), I would be cautious.
