I was wondering if anybody could help me out and tell how old this sign is and how much its worth? I bought it at a flea market for 25$ and I just wanted to know if I got a good deal.

    The trademark detail is 50's - 60's. Hard to tell for sure if it's an authentic Coca-Cola wood sign, it certainly has the appearance of being so. But it looks like it was sanded or stripped down and ?started? to be repainted, with the red around the logo. It's an unidentified "rustic beauty" in a state of partial restoration, I guess is how I'd classify it. I think you paid about what it's worth. Hope this helps.

    Hard to say. Value of known signs in very good condition are estimated in collector's guides like Petretti's 12th Edition. That's the starting point. My experience has been that the listed signs generally sell for 1/2 the estimated value. As you can imagine, a number of factors impact price: Rarity, condition, size, age, material, etc. Collectors like original, unretouched signs mostly. Restored pieces typically go for less. With yours being of unidentified origin, I'd say it's worth restoring if you enjoy doing so or want to hang it on your wall as a decorative element. If not, you could always put it up on eBay "as is" and let bidders determine the value. You may end up making a few bucks (or not, you know how that goes! - make sure you calc shipping accurately for example). -- Dave
