Missouri is showing me sweet old paper Coca-Cola fans from the 1930's. I acquired these two late last week as a result of a bid auction, paid just about book value. I wanted them in part because the handles were very similar to two of a different version fan I purchased some time ago, also out of Missouri. Having a chance at two fans for one price is attractive, as front and back can be displayed simultaneously. Mostly I love the graphics on the old ad pieces. When received today, happy to see my new two fans are by same manufacturer as my previous two fans: U.O. Colson Co., Paris, Illinois. I may frame all 4 together.

    I'm with you Dave, these 2 are beautiful examples of another time in Coca Cola history. How many of us remember church fans at funeral homes or in church. And I'm sure even before that they were in every store and in many homes. Great finds and in beautiful condition.
