This is the 1921 Coca Cola Autum Girl advanced copy that was sent to coca cola in 1920 before it was released in 1921, it is in the original frame and is larger than the actual calender it measures 25.75 inches by 11.38 inches. My dad was a coca cola dm for 40 years and acquired it along his travels and wanted some info about it, any help would be great we contacted coca cola in Atlanta and they were unclear anything about it thanks everybody.

    lol if ray doesnt know than no one is going know ( have not heard from earlycoke for awhile, he might know if he was around). all i know is the 1921 calendar is listed in petrettis 11 edition for 2800$, my price guides say nothing about the "advanced copies".

    I do understand that they might have made advance prints of the 20's calendars. Do the fact that an older collector friend of mine claims to have a couple himself. But with the size of the actual calendar top at 11 3/4 x 26 (without metal hanger strip) your calendar is actually smaller than the original. This leads me to think it has been trimmed form an original calendar. As far as I know there is no way to distinguish a simple calendar top from an advance copy, since they probably were simply the calender art itself from a real calender before distribution. (if they really exist at all) In theory they would have a different value than a trimmed calendar because of their rareness, but without the paperwork to go along with it to show provinance, I could put a price much higher than a trimmed calender top on it. Probably in the 3-500 dollar range. Allan has it (the complete calendar) in the book f0r 3 grand, but that is far from accurate, with only a near pristine example bringing that, and less examples bringing more in the 800-1500 range.
    The market is soft on calenders now.
