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. At least one other out there.
  2. My favorite of your recent posts. Though I am partial to signs. Nice one!
  3. Lots of great buys CK, some sweet pieces!
  4. Thanks CK, and a good size to shoehorn in somewhere! Looking forward to seeing another great post from you.
  5. Thank you Bernie!
  6. You have a nose for the incredible finds Michael, most of us must.. resist...must resist... ;0) Thanks hope you have a great weekend!
  7. Market and value are of the decorative variety.
  8. This and your other sign are contemporary reproductions. One similar was posted last week:
  9. Not a lot of info here beyond identification, but a starting point:
  10. This is an authentic tray from 1920, "Golfer Girl". Condition is rough, but it's The Real Thing. Here's a tray similar condition to give you an idea of approximate value.
  11. Correction to above. I ran across a listing for these shelving rolls, which described them as placed between layers of floor stacked six packs to stabilize. So they actually are the shelves, in effe...
  12. Listed in Petretti's guide as 1945-1947 with value for a near mint example 150 USD. Condition of blotters is very important to collectors, so I'd say knock 50%-75% off book price to be realistic.
  13. Here's one roughly same size.
  14. I look at a lot of eBay listings! ;0) Your glass is nicer condition.
  16. More like 70's with that dynamic ribbon logo. It's a 6-pack rack system, missing shelves. The rolls are shelf liners that would retract as the cartons were removed.
  17. Thanks Henry. The c. 1910 banner is cloth. I've seen them referred to as oilcloth or canvas. This one is a 3/4 partial, approx 3' removed. I often wondered about what was printed on the missing p...
  18. I know cola syrup long has long been used as an over the counter remedy for upset stomach. Common to see old bottles listed on eBay, I'm guessing many are found cleaning out medicine cabinets. They ...
  19. Thank you Sir Kerry, hope it's going good. I've been enjoying your timepiece posts. Lots of keepers there as well.
  20. You too Bernie and Thanks!
  21. Thank you Jim, hope you have a good weekend.
  22. Thanks fleafinder!
  23. Thank you Manikin, you are kind to say so. LOL EJW, you know!
  24. Thanks CK, seemed to look best that way.
  25. I think the sign has the same value no matter. It has a lot going for it. The damage hurts value most. If it is "rare", that certainly helps.
  26. Yes, a beautiful cardboard insert. These were usually displayed in a standard gold painted wood frame and changed out monthly or seasonally by the vendor. I flipped through a few books but could not...
  27. 1967 "world dish".
  28. Funny, I just ran across this item. Your glass might be part of a set like this:
  29. Very nice, every Coca-Cola collector should have one! Penpoint missing, looks like?
  30. Nice result. Well done.
  31. Happy New Year Mani!
  32. Many more Kerry, Happy New Year!
  33. The Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of New York City, 330-332 W. 27th St., is listed in Joe Belliveau's book as founded 1904. Mr. Charles E. Culpeper of Rome, Georgia, eventually purchased it and the NJ bottl...
  34. A little nicer than most checks, in that it shows the building and vehicles. Good find.
  35. Nice thermo David! Merry Christmas!!
  36. Merry Christmas! Your post made me think of the famous 1897 New York Sun editorial, which we Americans hold very dear. At least we Old-Timers do! ;0) "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus." h...
  37. This used to bother me too until I came to the conclusion that most of the buyers must know what they're getting. Either it's the only way they can afford an "old porcelain sign" or they're flipping ...
  39. Much thanks Coke1234.
  40. When I first looked at your thermometer, I thought "70's nostalgia decorative fantasy item". There doesn't appear to be any trademark detail on the logo which means it's not a Coca-Cola Co. licensed ...
  41. Thanks Coke Kid!
  42. Bernie! You awesome man. Yep, having been born in Flint, my parents and just about all the old relatives worked in the auto industry. So I do love the cars. Have a great holiday Sir!
  43. Thanks Mani, looking forward to another great year and seeing some of your wonderful posts! Thank you Sean! All the best to you. Bob, thanks so much, mine too. I just wish it cost less! ;0)
  44. Thank you David!
  45. Thanks Perry. It's definitely different than anything else in my collection, so I'm glad to round it out a little. Happy Holidays Brutha!!!
  46. Thank you Michael. Was checking out your collection this morning. I can only hope mine looks 1/2 as good. My best to you and yours.
  47. Looks super. That lighted lid is sweet!
  48. This doesn't shed much light, but of reference.
  49. Yep, officialfuel is correct (as usual!), not old. Looks nice and a fine spot for a sit.
  50. Repro. Easy to tell. The Hutch bottle was not depicted on the original image, for example.
