hi my name is sean. i was in southern california this last week and went through a few antique shops. while i was checking out at one shop i noticed this coca cola tube thing. it showed a price tag of $48 and said it was a mending kit.i inquired about it and come to find it was a small sewing kit, needles and thread included. oh and the lid acted as a thimble. i left and later called seeing if he would take $40 and he agreed and i bought it. now that i am home i have been trying to do research on it and have come up dry. the tag on it said 1937 and all i have been able to find are ones made in the 50's which look slightly different. on the tube it says coca cola DELICIOUS and REFRESHING IN BOTTLES 5C. it also has a patent number on it, 2084730. if anyone knows any info about this please let me know, i am curious to find out. also if anyone has an idea of what it was worth. i liked to know if i got ripped off paying 40 big ones or not.
