  1. Looks super! Really well done. Nice job on the logo, that couldn't have been easy.
  2. 1980's. Listed in Petretti's 12th Edition Collectibles Guide under "Recent, Reproduction, and Fantasy Items" section. Book value $10.
  3. One of several versions of the 1950's bottle sign thermometer. Unusual to see the hanger still attached, for some reason many are broken off on this one. Thousands upon thousands of bottle thermos w...
  4. Super Signage!
  5. 1930's sign manufactured by American Art Works out of Coshocton, O. Here's what it used to look like:
  6. Happy Thanksgiving bb2!
  7. Very hard to find this version in any size. Old, Big, and Beautiful! Nice one David!
  8. Wow, great condition! Looks super Bernie, congrats.
  9. Thank you mister Trey.
  10. Thank you CokeKid!
  11. Well, it's Haddon Sundblom art, 1955-ish, so a very nice piece regardless. A swell image.
  12. Thanks southjersey and pickr! Bern, can't wait to see the new room. You awesome brutha!
  13. The makers are equivalent, all things being considered equal. Westinghouse started making the Coke ice coolers in the early 30's, Cavalier within a couple years after. So Westy's were first and of ...
  14. The hits keep coming Michael. Another beauty.
  15. 1950's, pretty sure. It should have the copyright info and date at the very bottom, unless it's trimmed. Nice.
  16. It would have to be a labor of love. It's big and bad (in a good way!). Size is Giant. Maker likely Westinghouse or Cavalier. Collectors tend to go for the smaller versions, Junior or Master. S...
  17. Nice one! Here's a helpful resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  18. Nice clock JPSII. You're right about the hands, not original. These are off a Pam clock. Authentic are a different version, tapered inward at tips, finishing square.
  19. Looks to be pieced together. Not old. Minimal value.
  20. Big Prize, indeed. Beautiful old thermometer. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the original gauge, well protected set into the sign. And the 5¢ graphic makes it extra special. Nice score CK! Tha...
  21. Yowza! Please send that picker to my house Trey. ;0) So what are you going to do to remove that paper, soak 'n peel? 3 Beauties. Congrats.
  22. Nice wheels Kerry. You're going to need a Led Zeppelin cassette to go with that bad boy!
  23. Very cool. Never seen one. Awesome paper label with that old logo.
  24. They can be raised or smooth, depending on maker's print/finishing process.
  25. 1950's. These were displayed in a variety of ways. The big ones mostly on storefronts, one at each end of the marquee style sign with store name and offerings (Candy, Cigarettes, Liquor, etc... the ...
  26. Should be maker marked Neon Products Inc., if authentic c.1940. Hands are different than the example (which lists "repro alert" caution). Need to see shots of the back side and innards...
  28. A lot of stuff like this is new unlicensed contraband from India. Aman is a common surname there. Enjoyable as a decorative/utilitarian object. But not old or authentic.
  29. Looks like the production code contains year, '66 would be about right for this version. Great to see an international sign and interesting to see subtle differences vs. domestic U.S. Condition and ...
  30. Most of the time, Coca-Cola collectibles can be dated by the logo and trademark detail. has a nice reference:
  31. Looks Super Trevor!
  32. Shoot me an e-mail at and I'll send you the info.
  33. Thanks Trev!
  34. That fishtail version is hard to come by. Been on my list for a long time. Congrats!
  35. Nice score Michael.
  36. They look nice with the Coke cooler! Outstanding find.
  37. It's listed in 12th on page 258. Yours is missing a piece attached to the top, a decorative gold finish metal finial. Complete near mint one grand.
  38. Great Sign Dave. I'd hang it in my living room too!
  39. Here's a nice cooler info resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  40. Plenty of cool there. Fly boy wings logo and birds eye view of battle ships. Plane silhouettes streaking across the wild blue yonder. Kay Displays signs are great. Looks good!
  41. Thanks Mani for saying so. I do too! Bernie, Good luck with the move, that sounds like a lot of work. But it'll be worth it when you can kick back in the new digs enjoying the rest of your collec...
  42. 90's or later based on the trademark detail. They look to be in great shape.
  43. Hi fleafinder, Mostly it's cheap labor of mass produced goods.
  44. Thanks David! Coca-Cola 5¢ :0)
  45. Thank you CK! Your Madge Evans tray is super.
  46. Thanks Jim. I hung it in the basement bedroom, which made me realize I probably have some wall space to fill in there. Uh-oh. ;0)
  47. Yep, I had one, same version, with the leather strap. Agree with Mr. pickrknows, original handle.
  48. I have three chalk menu boards myself and agree they can be enchanting. That 30's version is among my favorites, very nice (I don't have that one).
  49. Nice sign. It's the mystery of the MCA production codes. Not sure anybody's figured it out here.
  50. Nice of seller to collect the matchbooks for you. Great item complete like this.
