I have acquired this sign many years ago in Northern Ontario Canada. Can't remember how much i had paid for it. I would like to know if this is a rare or antique piece due to a few uncommon details.

I have yet to find a similar unit with out a cap on the bottle along with details on the bottle using multiple colors.

Please help me figure this one out.

    hey Kjohn, I have a Canadian market Coca-Cola bottle die cut sign from the 60's with the multiple colors and no cap (you can follow my name tag to my postings to check it out). Without being able to make out the black print under the bottle on your sign (?Trade Mark Reg.?), I'm guessing yours dates from around the same period 60's-70's. I haven't seen another button or disc sign like it previously. It's a very nice example, big, in good shape, with the original mounting bracket attached. U.S. version metal button signs like this go for around $300-$400 (porcelain, much more). Generally, Canadian signs have slightly less value in the U.S. market. I wouldn't be surprised if your very nice sign has a value of $200-$300. (CCKid maybe knows more, or Trevor I believe is in Canada, he is probably a good one to comment on Canadian signs.) -- Dave

    Thanks Dave, I appreciate the help. The lettering in Black reads "Trade Mark Reg." It however has a sticker on the inside by the manufacturer "Wright Metal Signs". The bottle has almost a greenish blue color along with white and reddish pin-stripe details.

    i like your button sign i didnt know canada actully made the 36" button bottle signs, i have only seen the 48" porcelain or tin button signs that have the yellow dot near the botton. most the ones i have seen have all been dated in the 1950's so its news to me to hear they were still made up until the 1970's. still a nice sign probley get closer to 200$ due to it being a little new. PS is it on kijiji?

    Hi there,
    I can help you find out more about your sign. I am the daughter of the owner of Wright Metal Sings Ltd. The company was in Puslinch ont. Founded by my Grandfather just after WW II then passed down to my father. The company made metal signs for coca- cola, petro canada, castrol oil and many other companies. I doubt that your sign is hand painted Wright Metal Signs logos were silk screened.
    I hope that helps! I'll try to find out when your sign was made
