  1. Hey Chad and Thanks. I bought Joe's book as well. Fun to flip through. Didn't think to reference it, appreciate the info.
  2. We probably don't want to know what they call us.
  3. I like the little (low cost) details, don't you know! Thanks Mr. Bernie, hope things are good with you and The Fam.
  4. I'd like to grip that door pull and hang it on my wall! :0)
  5. Sounds like you have a good handle on the situation.
  6. It's The Real Thing.
  7. Cool Piece.
  8. Thanks Chad. It's a lot of fun finding these little pieces.
  9. Hi Bernie and Thanks!
  10. It was a manufacturing mecca, to be sure. Ideally located for receipt of raw materials and shipment of finished goods on Lake Michigan. Big city, lots of resources - human and otherwise. Still quit...
  11. Oh that's rich! I'll have to do some digging. So... somebody faked these cigar bands contemporary to the real ones, and a fake one shows up printed in the 1933 Fortune Magazine ad??? Sounds bizarre...
  12. I may have to fire one up to honor this incredible deal. I recall reading somewhere that these glass / bottle version bands were never actually on cigars. I think they were favors handed out at a ce...
  13. Thanks Kerry!
  14. Mystery Solved.
  15. Rick or The Old Man will know for sure. Look forward to seeing that episode! ;0)
  16. These are a lot of fun to look at and make great reference material. Yours looks nice and complete.
  17. thanks Sir Kerry!
  18. Great piece and looks super up on the office shelf. I agree with the peanut gallery, it's outstanding "as is". Nice Snag Chad!
  19. Thank you Trey!
  20. Cool sign. The circle r "registered" trademark detail in the Coca-Cola logo started during the 1990's. So this falls into the decorative category moreso than collectible. Though it certainly is att...
  21. Nice one! I think a bottle rack sign. Looks good there.
  22. Yes I believe so. For me, one of the things that drew me to Coke signs was the way the red popped against the off white back drop of the long walls in our basement. I still remember hanging that fir...
  23. Thanks Julie Jewels, that's a high compliment!
  24. Thanks Prells.
  25. We had to bring in extra security.
  26. Hi Katherine, Jewels picked up a six pack and now she's over in the arts and crafts aisle!
  27. Funny, I feel that way when looking at spreadsheets. It's the dominant left-side right-side brain thing. Good to hear from you Julie.
  28. Now that sure does look like home! Beautiful.
  29. Thanks Bernie, you know how much I appreciate your comments. and thanks eye now I can stop squinting, tilting my head side to side!
  30. I think there is a pattern there that his artistic eye for beauty is picking up. CW Rorschach Test. I thought I saw Tricky Dick last night, now I'm leaning toward girl playing in field of daisies......
  31. I hear ya Tom, nice to see a little grass out back. Yessir, soon lawn work and golf will nudge collecting out da way in my leisure priorities.
  32. hey tommy, thanks man!
  33. Thanks Tommy, hope things are going good in the Empire State.
  34. You are lucky to have both versions. I've been gunning for just one for a long time. Hard to snag.
  35. Thanks Chad. Sort of anticlimactic. But the scratches on the other one bothered me a bit. There are so many rough signs out there, hard to find in this condition without paying an arm or a leg. Ap...
  36. eye, the yellow orb behind the bottle, rising majestically, illuminating a beautiful... bottle of Delicious and Refreshing... I've heard is called the rising sun sign, I think. Maybe setting sun? Al...
  37. Nice. These are hard to find at a decent price, congrats. The 3D signage make for great display pieces mixed in with the 2D signs. Well done.
  38. Looks like it's from Mint City. Nice snag Bernie.
  39. Here's what your sign looks like complete:
  40. Thanks for the nice comment Trey.
  41. Thanks Gents.
  42. Thank you Mani!
  43. Thank you Sir E'fan. The Bottlers didn't have time to bother with little details like trademark info. Interestingly, the bottom of this ND bottle has the same maker marks as my Susanville, Calif. se...
  44. Numbers should be 1865 with the maker. If you look at the Schmidt auction knife it's worn over as well.
  45. Beautiful triplets! (Prells, I think TheBurgerDude beat you to it ;0)
  46. Boy, I'll say. Never seen one for sale (I may have given up on the Schmidt auction by the time that one came up!). Is this one stamped with maker Chad?
  48. According to my 1940 Coolergraph, the insulation material is described as 2" glass wool. Fiberglass.
  49. Bumper to Bumper Beauty, Bernie!
  50. It's a 1981 thermo:
