S E is Saorstait Eireann or the Irish Free State. Until 1949 when Ireland became a Republic, this was the official title. Guinness bottles had SE embossed like that and I reckon it is from them.
If it is, they are common enough--for two reasons . First, empties were collected and reused ( thats an old term for recycling) and ,second,the mould for the bottles wasnt changed until well in the the fifties.
