I was out today driving around and stopped in this little town in Indiana. The store is only open on Saturday and Sunday. They always have an incredible inventory of some of the finest collectibles that I have ever seen. They pride themselves in quality. Something for everyones fix. Today was no different than any other time I have stopped. There it was looking at me when I walked in the store over in the corner. I made my best deal, paid the man and we loaded it up. Now it's with the other Coca-Cola items that I have collected. I think it's in pretty good shape for being old and had been out in the elements for years. The sign is dated A-M 1-56.

    Your sign should be dated on the bottle/button side at the bottom pretty sure its 1950's...

    Thanks Ray for stopping by and commenting! This one was not cheap. I had to step up to the plate and pay big dollars for this one. It's hard to get a deal nowadays with the internet and all the tv shows educating everyone.

    Great pick! As always, another fantastic good-ol'-days addition to your outstanding collection!
  11. jameyrd jameyrd, 3 years ago
    When you see it out on the road, it is much more tempting to buy even when the price isn't as low as you'd like. Thrill of the chase! You can look it over in person and determine if it is a good buy. Awesome buy and great find!
  12. Signaholic Signaholic, 3 years ago
    Yep, great find Michael! Hey condition is everything when it comes to these policeman signs. You scored a great one.

    We have a crossing guard as well. Although the 'date' at the bottom is AM 108. So I'm not sure if that is truly a date. They might have been individually numbered?
  36. timekeeper timekeeper, 2 years ago
    Hello, Just had a couple questions regarding the Coke crossing guard sign...Is the underside of your base dated? Also, the difference between a repro and an original are the screws that hold together the 2 halves, correct. The repro will be huge grommets, with the orig being screws??? Any help would be most appreciated.

    We're currently selling our guy at auction at http://www.pacificauction.com/auction_detail.php?id=185597 to be held 8/4/12. Not sure what he will go for.
  38. officialfuel officialfuel, 2 years ago
    Thank you timekeeper for stopping by! I saw a repro the same day I found this one and it had flat head screws with a nuts on the end of it also. It's hard to explain but I could tell the difference from the original and the repro. Hope this helps but if not maybe the experts might chime in and give you better info to your question.
