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. We'll figure it out eventually, thanks Bern.
  2. Thanks guys! My confidence is starting to waver. Bernie, I new the logo was OK based on the Dasco variation. It never occurred to me that it wasn't right. But I think I'll have to do some research...
  3. There was a huge nostalgia craze in America during the 70's leading up to the bicentennial celebration. Novelty sign makers churned out many versions of these fantasy mirrors by the tens of thousands...
  4. Thanks Chad, I can safely say this is my best buy for under $10. Hard to believe sellers still put this kind of stuff up for sale with low BIN prices. Less and less though. Perry, thank you and ...
  5. Thanks Lady Manikin. It was a grungy little thing, but ever-so-lightly cleaned up to be a real gem. And the frame to me makes it extra special.
  6. Out of this world, Signaholic!
  7. Bernie, I can picture you roaring up the boulevard on this 'cycle!
  8. Beautiful piece scott.
  9. Not sure the tin Coca-Cola signs come any earlier. Certainly this is one of the first. The stuff of my dreams... sigh...
  10. LOL next time please take pictures Chad!
  11. Mid to late 1930's. These typically had a thin, wood, silver frame. They were the main panel of store front signs around which bottle signs, privilege panels, and art deco style frame elements were ...
  12. 1920's-30's. These are scarce advertising signs and you have a beauty there. I think removing the Bud sticker would improve display.
  14. I would have snapped it up too a&c38. More inside jokes than a family reunion. This celebrates November 21, 1986, the day Coca-Cola Enterprises made its initial public offering on the New York S...
  15. Chad, pick me up, I'll be ready.
  16. These are commonly referred to as "sled signs". 1950's-early 60's. I think the banner is a post manufacture add-on, judging from placement and manner secured. Doesn't quite fit and screws are promi...
  17. Nice one southjersey. Beauty of a porcelain sign. Refreshes You Best is the slogan from 1959. Those logos (bottom one sort of a precursor to the fishtail) appear on domestic signs during the 50's. ...
  18. The dynamic ribbon in Arden square logo was introduced 1970. If you know maker and model #, you could probably nail down year better.
  20. Easy to enjoy a nice old button like this one!
  21. Pretty sure it's part of a table lamp, similar to this one.
  22. It's part of the production code and I don't think you're going to have any luck determining whether it has significance. I have the same button marked AM 84 X and a fishtail AM 20. I seem to recall...
  23. Perfect to show off your collection. Crazy like a fox!
  24. The King Size was introduced in 1955, so call this one late 50's. The old cardboard carriers make for great display pieces when loaded up with period bottles. Not a whole lot of value when compared ...
  25. Well, I can look at this collection and see a hundred dollar bill. It's all about perspective Mr. Lucas!
  26. No, I tell the truth bb2!!! ;0)
  27. Awesome Mr. Fuel!
  28. It's a mix of mini's. The crate and empty bottles are part of a 1930's mini 12 bottle case. The lighters are 1950's. Nifty promotional items. Each fairly common in the collector's market. But on...
  29. Thank you Bernie, always good to hear from you!
  30. And you've got some great ones to look at all day, that's for sure. Thanks Coke1234.
  31. Ran across this one on The eBay. Apparently yellow wood crates survived into the 70's. Well, there are exceptions to every rule!
  32. Thanks Chad. 14 bucks.
  33. Looks like Coca-Cola sponsored an annual family day for a number of years at Rockingham 90's-00's, and I'm guessing this was a raffle or door prize.
  34. Happy to do it Scott, thanks Tom, and LOL Perry!
  35. Thanks for saying so Bob, appreciated.
  36. thanks southjersey!
  37. Mani, thanks, spent a little time researching as I've come across so many fakes and not much in the way of info out there. It adds a little bit more fun while collecting.
  38. 1950's ended the yellow wood period, then yellow plastic in the 60's, then red wave logo crates in the 70's.
  39. My pleasure ttomt.
  40. Thanks CK-04. And yes. :0)
  41. Great push bar, a beauty with trademark still in the logo. That's a super score. And a nice grouping of signs to boot.
  42. Uh-oh, my deep dark secret is revealed. I hate Sprite Boy!!!
  43. Crisply maker marked "SCHWAAB MILWAUKEE". Repros have this mark as well, in varying legibility.
  44. Be that as it may, this fob is well documented in the books and authentic. And the swastika as a good fortune symbol was indeed displayed in the tilted form. That's well documented as well. http:...
  45. I think you're right Mr. Signaholic.
  46. I'll say it was a great day. Another Super Sign!
  47. It's a cool old crate. You don't see that broken logo on anything else (that I can think of).
  48. Well, upgrading is a fun element of collecting. I wish I had more room to display the old, full size trays like yours. I look past the flaws in my tip trays. I figure they're well earned in years a...
  49. I believe many of the boxed games "compliments of Coca-Cola Bottling Company" were handed out to service men. As you say, a promotional piece. And a very nice one at that! :0)
  50. Nice one! I think it's more like 1920-30's. Here's an interesting article about the full depth style Coca-Cola cases:
