This is a vintage coca cola cooler that my grandmother bought (I don't even know when), passed down to my father and now has been given to me. I have fond memories of carrying this 35-40 lb cooler to the beach when I was kid; nice parents, huh? Anyway, it's been in my family for some time so I'm very grateful to have this in my collection. It has all the pieces and they are in great condition, and there is no patent # on it (it only states "PAT APPLD FOR"). I've been thinking about having it restored, but I'm not sure if it would be worth putting the money into it. The bottom tray and cooler bottom has some surface rust on it but that's about it. I've looked on the internet for anything like this and I've not found one, seems like they are all slightly different in the upper tray and I've not seen any with the bottom tray (which I'm not even sure of the purpose for that tray). I've also not seen any that are pre-patent so I'm not sure what that adds to this piece.
