This, to me, was an awesome find. I went antiquing today with my mom and some of my cousins. I posted the other non-coke finds, but this one was great. In a display case I saw this sitting on the first shelf. I was cool, but we were going to more antique places later, so I decided to wait. After about 3 more places, we stopped back here since I had extra cash. I bought it for 50 dollars with "3" cups. But, when I got it, and picked it up, I heard rattling. We took it open and behold, the forth cup. Now it was almost complete. When I was at the front desk, I saw the tag said "box on ladder". and I though to myself, "the original box?" so I had to run back to the booth and grab the box, it took me a few minutes to find the box but I found it. Now I knew I had nearly doubled the value of this thing. It's in mint condition, with few scratches, all the cups are there (I think), and it has the original box. It says in petretti's that it is worth around 150 bucks.
A nice story to go along with a great piece.
