I was out garage saling and found this 30" Coca-Cola thermometer. It's missing the glass thermometer but I can replace that. I looked it up in Petretti's 12th edition on page 235 but not quite sure if it is the real deal or not. Would love an opinion from the experts. The lady was asking $15.00 and I took a chance for $10.00. Just want to know if it is real or fantasy.

    Is there a company name on the bottom of the thermometer?

    Should say"Made in USA" on bottom,very small script, & have a 2 digit date on top of scale to be orig. Later ones had "Assembled USA", red back, & code858 on bottom of scale.
    I only know this because I have both versions, plus there is also a Mexican version also.
    Hope this helps Michael.

    Thank you Ray for stopping by and giving me your expert opinion! Thank you all for taking the time to stop in and give your input! :-) I may just delete the post since it is a reproduction or just leave it for someone else to learn from it and not make the same mistake.

    Hey Michael, Ray would be absolutely right on if this was the 17" version, but the 29" thermo did not have the makers name on the bottom, which makes them harder to differentiate between.

    So, is it not worth even $40.00 because it doesn't have a company name? I have one that is 33" long and I have seen it sell around $50. Is it because it was not made for Coca Cola that makes it not valuable to collectors? I think it is a good buy just for vintage sign collectors. It has "made in USA" at the bottom, and number 41 at the top of thermometer. BTW, hello, all, I am new to the forum, thanks for your patience and reply's in advance, I'm gonna need it!

    Wow!! The summer is flying by! ...I have been delayed, but will be posting pictures soon...this is a great website! I look forward to spending time here browsing everyone's collections and sharing mine. ...to officialfuel.... I still think for $10 that was a good find...I can picture it hanging outside some 'ole gas station/store on the side of an old winding road years ago! I bet it could tell some good stories if it could talk!
