Miller Olive Drab Flat Top?

What is the general consensus as to why the Miller OD label design is so different than the non-OD? Why would they do that?

Then again, why not? It would be ironic if the standard label ever turned up or even the converse example wherein a non-OD version of the OD label was found. :eek:

The design is more like their bottle labels from the 40s....same girl on the case of beer and font for the High Life.
