I think I'm a coca cola madness recently as I bought another coca cola item !

this is a coca cola blotter printed in Belgium with the sprite boy, I'm not sure there was a same one for USA but it's a bit smaller than the other coke blotter I have

the other one is from 1956 printed in USA, the condition is top

    I really like this blotter, its a pretty rare one, with a great image! Listed in Petretti's 12th edition pg 421, mint condition, 100$! I'm also not sure if this blotter was made for US as well, theres two listed, ones yours (Belgium) the other is listed as export. I'm wondering if both were made in Belgium, one was exported to US?

    Thanks Trevor, it's fun to see the difference between book value and reality, I bid on it on ebay and got it for 10 $ As I respect the work of Petretti for his great book, I think he over value the items on his book

    for the other blotter as export I think but not sure it's one from germany

    WOW!!! 10$ is a steal on this blotter! I agree Petrettis seems to over value alot of the items in his book, but usually 50% of his list price is what the market will gladly support. I think this blotter is worth around 50$ so 10$ is very good deal!

    I'm answering your other question as to the size being smaller, some blotters were made smaller. Not really sure why some were made in different sizes but they were all used for the same purpose and some were even used as coasters.
