I look to have this sign for month, this is one of the rarest tin sign in coca cola, the sign is from 1947 and is self framed, they were used on the side of coca cola truck after WW2 to give coca cola bottles to people

I manage to sold some old sabena counter displays from the 30's to buy it
I'm really happy with it.

    You sure this sign is original? i thought it was a 1950's 10" German, reverse glass beveled edge, atleast thats what petrett's coke guide says on pg 275.

    sorry never mind was looking at wrong item found yours if you have petrett's 12 edition its on page 223 for 1,500$. 1947 12 3/4" tin embossed edge, coca-cola export. Great find you got there hard to find original spriteboy items.

    They used the same image for the beveled edge german glass

    by the way, Pettreti's book are great but for me it's incomplete, I saw many signs ( coke and soda signs ) that were not in his books especially european signs

    There are 3 versions of this sign from Europe and were distibuted in Germany/France/Belgium and possibly more countries. I have all 3 versions in my collection - there is the Tin sign, the glass sign and a cardboard version. All have exactly the same graphics and are roughly the same size. I guess it just depended on how much you spent with coca-cola at the time as to what version you got given. My favoutite is the glass version as the colours are so bright and vivid, and this is very hard to find (also on Petrittis) as many are chipped and damaged. The Tin version I have is absolutely Mint and even came with original paper wrapper. I have owned 2 cardboard versions too. Let me know if you want me to post photos of any.
