  1. It's a 1981 thermo:
  2. Yep and that's a perfect spot for the cooler, nice visual flow placed next to your work bench. That space looks great.
  4. I miss the old typewriter. See second image.
  5. That's a good idea Lucas. The local grocery doesn't carry ink pads, so I mixed up some of the kids' watercolor paint and brushed it over the plate. Took me a good 20 tries before I got a decent imag...
  6. 10th lists as 1950's by Linemar, 185. Nice one Bernie!
  7. Thanks Mr. Edisonfan, those are two of my favorites as well. I do love the way smalls can be displayed. They are great compliment pieces to the signs and other larger Coca-Cola collectibles.
  8. eBay has a great feature to the left of the Search button, touch on advanced, then type in description, check "sold listings", then search and you will see auction results. It's a pretty decent refer...
  9. hey vbb...wc... ahem... your collection disappeared! Was so looking forward to seeing more. Silver Tuna! ;0)
  10. Wow...Silver Tuna! ;0)
  11. Sharette, I see these come up on eBay often usually attached to a block, usually small in size, maybe 2x2x1. They can be collectible depending on age, condition, and content. Sometimes sellers will ...
  12. I'll be sure to tell the guys in our graphics dept. about this.
  13. And I am not (obviously)! ;0)
  14. Letterpress not flexo thanks eye.
  15. It's a flexo print plate used by a newspaper or magazine printer. The Coca-Cola ad looks 1950's (as the post-war economy boomed, leisure time activities like barbeques, camping, tailgating became ver...
  16. Here's another cooler with the same code.
  17. Here's the auction listing from 2010, references W-NRRU 1939 Westinghouse in the coolers section. As I stated, there is no other associated detail.
  18. Looks really nice. Well done!
  19. Yep, there it is. Thanks Bernie! Yes I agree, a beauty.
  20. Here's the radiotubes-based code theory Tommy mentioned. I did find an auction list that identified W-NRRU as a 1939 Westinghouse but there were no pictures or results, just the list. I have a Caval...
  21. Yeah, we need toolbox to break out his decoder ring.
  22. Nice grouping. The yellow in the Canadian signs really pops. What's the story behind the large door push style sign all the way to the right in the first pic? Not sure I've seen one that size and ...
  23. That's a fair assumption. You may want to leave NROJAY a comment asking about his experience, he restored a Junior that turned out very nice.
  24. Hey Trev, Check out the completeness of this grocery signage set:
  25. It's a Westinghouse production identifier. Not sure but I think puts it right around 1939.
  26. Here's what it looks like with strong paint:
  27. The dynamic ribbon logo dates it to 1970 or later.
  28. Picture of the factory.
  29. The print plate is the logo introduced in 1970, but the machine itself sure looks like it could pre-date the plate. Looks like Bird-Potts opened their welding operation in Atlanta during 1921. htt...
  30. Thank you Sir Jamey!
  31. Gracias, V.v!
  32. The logo and slogan are 1970, so early 70's is ball park.
  33. We're with you Mae. Coke Is It. Wonderful barrel dispenser.
  34. Thank you ucl for taking time to view my collection.
  35. Hi Rose, Yes that's the right time period. I remember when the faux wood look was popular during the 70's. The 12 oz cup decal is missing from your friend's dispenser, but otherwise looks to be in ...
  36. Nice snag CK-04, definitely has the "wow" factor!
  37. Thanks Prells!
  38. Thanks Chad. I'm mostly a tin sign guy, but can see how others get hooked by the old paper. Must... resist... :0)
  39. Hey thank you Bernie!
  40. Thanks eye. You know what I'm talking about! ;0)
  41. Thank you Jewels, fifties, tommy, and Trey.
  42. Your cooler collection is growing Bernie! I wish I had room for more like your display shelves. Not many of The Royals around in such nice condition. Congrats.
  43. Great pic. Man, look at that place. Soda fountain and candy counter. How much fun was it walking in there? I bet a lot.
  44. Looks like a great place to hang out. Well done!
  45. Great coolers and cool cave! I like the way you're displaying the lumber too. The ice block went in the cooler, chipped or whole. Underneath is for cases of empties or restock. An old yellow case ...
  46. Think "Disco".
  47. Good call fifties. Could only find one auction result for $2.30. Current listings describe as 1994.
  48. Looks like a 30's Harder "Kleen-Kold" icebox/fridge. I'd say the paint job and decals are a customization. Glascock Bros. Mfg. cooler tag at the bottom front, somebody added to lend a little authent...
  49. Looks great displayed with your other coolers Bernie. Scarce one and very nice condition. Cooler Envy!!!
  50. Slow AND I flubbed my line. Canada's like Michigan, so it would have been a Monday. (Nice weather never falls on the weekend.)
