Thanks for the comments about the coke machine I posted earlier. In response to Coke.Tevor.Cola's request. Here are some shots of the sign. The other sign on the machine is a 12" sign. Small lettering under "In Bottles" on the 16" sign reads "AM12 2"

Follow up question. How does the lack of a logo effect the value of this machine?

Thanks! Alan

    Missing logo effects value of machine huge, its no longer a coca cola machine, you could get someone to paint it back on but it would be very hard to match the original decal. the machine is now a vintage ice box still prob worth around 150$- 200$ in working condition, those buttons signs is were the real value is. if their true 1950's US buttons their worth around 300$-400$ each. im not too fimilar with the US buttons tho you might wanna make sure their actully from the 1950's, TGBWC would know for sure.

    Here's a link to a similar (?same?) machine by Ideal. To me, those buttons don't look like they are original to it. Either way, it's one helluva combo!

    Hey Daddy_Nobucks, that's helpful, thank you. What's interesting to note is that my model # tag is a decal (newer machine?) and I don't see a serial number tag anywhere on my machine (unless I'm not looking in the right place). I think the model # is correct based on this picture and a lead from Tommy_1002 where I was able to match up the dimensions. I'm wondering if I took some close-up pictures of the finish/paint if it would help determine if maybe the signs were original vs. a later add on. If there are other pictures I could provide let me know. Thanks! Alan

    Hi TGBWC, I posted some follow up pictures of the small sign from the machine as well as a shot of the mounting hardware, serial number plate and compressor ID plate, if any of that helps.
    Thanks,

    I just picked up a 16 inch button sign that looks the same except it says "AM64". What does this "AM" mean? Is that a reference to the date it was made?
