I collect old, authentic Coca-Cola signs and ad pieces. I love prowling eBay and pulling the trigger on a sweet BIN deal. Collectors Weekly is without a doubt the I collect old, authentic Coca-Cola signs and ad pieces. I love prowling eBay and pulling the trigger on a sweet BIN deal.

  1. Yep, I had one, same version, with the leather strap. Agree with Mr. pickrknows, original handle.
  2. 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).
  3. Nice sign. It's the mystery of the MCA production codes. Not sure anybody's figured it out here.
  4. Nice of seller to collect the matchbooks for you. Great item complete like this.
  5. Yep fantasy item. Pg 614 Petretti's 12th.
  6. Super Score Trey!
  7. I hate the No Golfing sign!!!! ;0)
  8. Thank you Trey!
  9. Yep, very nice piece, hard to come by. Congrats.
  10. Thanks Bern good to hear from ya!
  11. Sweet Sign and Cute Munchkins!
  12. Your cardboard insert was 27"x58" before it was cut down. Here's a missing piece of the puzzle, the badminton picnic.
  13. Thank you Jim! Yes, very warm and dry last month. Good golf and swim weather. Keep up the flange effort. Still good to fair deals out there.
  14. Thanks Chad. Fairly common sign but not so easy to buy at a decent price. If Petretti ever gets #13 published, I'm certain this version will show good increase in value (vs. #12).
  15. Thanks EJW, he's 12 and every utterance is a nugget. Yep bb2, the lad needs to learn!
  16. 1960's grocery display sign, was attached to a wire or metal rack full of cartons to enhance point of purchase.
  17. 1886-1936 would be the Fiftieth Anniversary. Somebody failed math.
  18. There is an original cardboard display of this from the 1936, measuring 29" x 50." See Petretti's 11th edition Coca-Cola price guide, page 146.
  19. The image is from the 1936 serving tray, "Hostess Girl". The poster itself is a later decorative item. Relatively new when your dad found it. No old, authentic sign like this. Fantasy piece.
  20. Here's a nice resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  21. I spy Coca-Cola signs! Very nice Mani.
  22. Looks good. This logo is called the Arden Square with Dynamic Ribbon. 70's-80's. Nice snag.
  24. Super vending machine Michael. These are the Coke collector's equivalent to the Petroliana collector's gas pumps. Hard to find but you simply gotta have one! Just in time for the 4th of July. Fill...
  26. Thanks Jim. This is my third flange sign. Not easy to find the right spot for display, as they can block the view of other signs. But I like the depth they provide visually. Hope it's going good.
  27. I agree, breathed a little life into it.
  28. It's a contemporary decorative item in the shape of an 1890's Coca-Cola clock by maker Baird Clock Co.
  29. Nice old Standard Ice Cooler by Westinghouse or Cavalier. Does not appear to be an electric model. Here's a nice resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  30. Thanks Chad!
  31. Is it battery powered?
  32. Hey Bernie thanks man, yep, my wife is still polishing me up!
  33. Thank you EJW and you too, congrats on the new old pump. I had my eye on one at our local hardware, but owner wanted a very large sum for it. Maybe someday.
  34. Thanks Guys!
  35. Excellent Info Bern!
  36. hey jersey, info on the international signs, unless they're early, is very hard to come by I've found. I think the translastion of this sign is "Ice Cold Coca-Cola Drink It". Pretty straightforward!...
  37. Great find Michael!
  38. Nice 1914 Jim and great deal!
  39. Unusual to see the corner guards on the lid. Canadian cooler, looks like? If so, St. Thomas was a maker up north during the 50's. Maybe one of our picnic cooler pro's will weigh in with more info.
  40. Trademark detail dates it to 1990's or later. Decorative. Doesn't look to need cleaning too badly, just wipe down front surface with a damp cloth.
  41. Great Carriers Trev!
  42. Thanks MPB. I hadn't seen your Nehi version, very cool and I'm guessing very scarce. Funny how it's a 20's update of the earlier image, with the clothing and hairstyles changed. It wouldn't surpris...
  43. Original hanger too. Nice snag. Here's another example.
  44. Interesting to see one of these, haven't run across one. This would have been a stock plain thermometer which was printed with whatever the customer specified upon order. If you just Google up R. Ho...
  45. It's not an original barrel nor label. Old Coca-Cola barrels are red and don't have clock numbers on the label.
  46. Thanks Spencer!
  48. The Arciform logo was used late fifties - early sixties. AM is sign maker Allen-Morrison. 91 is their production code.
  49. Nice to see that you're still collecting Spriteboy. I see you still have the knack. If I recall, you sniff out the sweet deals. Great sign!
  50. I've always thought one of these wouldn't look bad hanging on the wall. I may try it. Yours is a great one Bern, the 25¢ detail isn't on them all.
