    Ray is correct. The scale is really cool, but would be worth more authentically restored. The only scale that ever had a coke logo on it was a pharmacist's scale given to pharmacy's that sold a certain amount of syrup. That was around 1895.
    There are only a couple of them known to exist. This scale is a produce or meat scale, and one would have to ask, why would the company advertise on a produce scale? Sorry this is not an authentic coke collectible.

    Hi guys
    When you say recently add logo
    What do you mean?

    Tonypinto, they mean that this item before restoration was a original scale. and since coca cola decals and stickers are so easy and cheap to get, they took the scale, painted it red, added a few decals, and bam, they made a authentic looking coke scale. So basicly, it's worth/ less becasue of the added decals and such.

    This is probably a Dayton or a Toledo Scale, should be a label on it or it was removed during resto. I have seen many painted in the Coca Cola theme, I have a family here locally that is selling one with the Coke theme for $200. Probably worth more if was all original.

    Actually without the coke decals it would bring 1200.00 or better.
