Daddy_Nobu…

Picked up this 9 1/2" x 27 1/2" sign as a result of a negotiated BIN deal, after no bids were placed on seller's original eBay auction. I've long been on the prowl for one of this version. Size and condition appealed to me, as I don't believe I've seen many like it up on the eBay. While delivered price was approx 2/3 book (a little higher than I'm used to paying), I feel good about checking this one off my list. I stray from buying signs from time to time. But always come back to the pieces I enjoy most. Tin BIN. (oooh...I may have to change my user names!:)

    SWEET!!! Gotta love the BIN and space is relative, when you find more signs...you will find more space!

    Hey Dave, I just got started collecting Coca Cola antiques and I gotta say, I love your posts. Cool items, and straight to the point. Now I've recently come across a sign just like this one.. but instead it says M.C.A. 773 and the edges are more rounded out, coming up about a centimeter, and the holes are placed in different spots. It's in near mint condition, which scares me. I was wondering if I sent you a photo, if you could give me your opinion on it's authenticity?

    Hi Pfaucet. Welcome to the World of Coca-Cola Collecting and thanks for the kind words. I was lucky to find 7 other guys with a similar interest early on to help me navigate what can be a minefield at times. Two of which, TGBWC and earlycoke, who are widely recognized as experts in old Coca-Cola advertising. I decided from the start to chronicle the good, the bad, the Delicious and Refreshing here as a reference for new collectors. So I am very pleased that you found us. Keep posting your stuff and questions here. There is no better collector's site. Feel free to send me an e-mail at daveq@wowway.com and I will offer input or point you in the right direction. Thanks again.
