  1. Hard to say. This isn't something considered collectible as a Coca-Cola piece.
  2. Sanden bought long time Coca-Cola vending machine manufacturer Vendo in the 70's, so there is a tie in. It appears this is a stock countertop cooler to which someone added the name plate and sticker.
  3. One of the coolest of the Coca-Cola tin menu boards. Nice touch showing the caps. I have yet to find a chalk soft enough to write on mine. Great snag Chad.
  4. Yes it's the mid-size Acton "Low Boy" cooler.
  5. I'm stumped. Looks like an employee number, maybe a locker tag.
  6. Agreed... though this one was Made in Canada.
  7. She's going to be mad when she finds out your sending flowers to other Coca-Cola girls.
  8. I don't think it's Hilda. Here's 1901.
  9. Tip of the cap, that is one Magnificent Menu.
  10. I'd like to order a heaping plate of envy please!
  11. Yes, but not in nearly as good condition, mine's quite a bit more worn. The stamping (or etched) detail on yours really pops.
  12. Great opener Chad. :0)
  14. Boy, I'll say it's visually pleasing. And something so minty holds/grows value through thick and thin. Beauty!
  15. The Red Barrels are iconic and make awesome display pieces. Nice label, that's important.
  16. Thanks Trey. Yep guys, they were a bit wordy back then and danced around the facts a bit.
  17. Thanks Chad. I love the expanded title of the 1913 booklet... just in case the message wasn't clear in 1912.
  18. Those were the days.
  19. Nice placement. Will be fun to look at while washing vegetables and preparing the flambe.
  20. Super Sign, cocacolapost!
  21. One of my favorite signs. Not easy to come by, congrats.
  22. Incredible deal for a very nice tray. Sa-weet Snag!
  23. One doesn't have to be a creative genius to imagine an ocean container of these fake signs floating into the Port of Galveston. "Fresh to Market"
  24. Here's a comprehensive breakdown. This guy obviously knows his stuff:
  25. Yep. One of my more memorable transactions. What a saga.
  27. Size does matter when collecting old Coca-Cola signs. The authentic 30's porcelain signs are large and heavy, 3x5, 4x8, etc. Fakes of this size would be difficult and expensive to ship from south of...
  28. The Mumbai Fakers are a #%&*%$ plague and they're getting better all the time.
  29. I think 70's.
  30. Looks to be a 1950's window head transparency.
  31. These are dug too. I dug money out of my pocket! :o)
  32. Thanks Joy, looks like you're off to a fantastic start.
  33. Thanks CK!
  34. Keep on Truckin' Bern!
  35. Beautiful little old toy truck Bernie. You're getting quite a collection of them. Great display pieces!
  36. I'll say. Hoo-boy. Er, Hoo-girl. Aw I give up!
  37. One-pieces are ok, but I'm partial to bikinis myself. Not wearing them... ahem. Not that there's nothing wrong with it. The recent Bruce Jenner interview was a real eye opener!
  38. 1963 cardboard cutout book value 375. Nice one.
  39. Killer sign that's going to look great on the wall.
  40. Thank you Lady Rose!
  41. Thank you kerry and Trey.
  42. You've sent me a lot of good advice Bern. Thanks!
  43. Super. I see another one peeking in to the right. Elaine's sister?
  44. Write it down, great old mechanical writing implements.
  45. Hi and thank you Julie Jewels, hope things are good with you!
  46. Thanks Dave. Yep I agree. Pieces that have provenance involving other collectors whom I admire are special to me. A jug from Blaine. Napkin from Ray. Tin from Tommy. Booklet from Perry. T-shirt...
  47. Thanks Chad. It's fun to move things around within a collection. I like how this display turned out. Something a little different. I've become somewhat of a curator when my kids friends visit the ...
  48. Great little piece of CC history with the Fowle and Sons tie in. These coupons are hard to find. Looks super and a very nice grouping of old, authentic pieces.
  49. c. 1940. Westinghouse made many sizes of Coca-Cola branded ice and electric coolers. The two smallest are Junior and Half Junior. The Half Junior was countertop. But it's not unusual to see Junior...
  50. Uh-oh, kicking it up a notch, Hal! I call it Sweet 1918 Festoon... or Backbar Beauties.
