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. 1967 "world dish".
  2. Funny, I just ran across this item. Your glass might be part of a set like this:
  3. Very nice, every Coca-Cola collector should have one! Penpoint missing, looks like?
  4. Nice result. Well done.
  5. Happy New Year Mani!
  6. Many more Kerry, Happy New Year!
  7. 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...
  8. A little nicer than most checks, in that it shows the building and vehicles. Good find.
  9. Nice thermo David! Merry Christmas!!
  10. 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...
  11. 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 ...
  13. Much thanks Coke1234.
  14. 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 ...
  15. Thanks Coke Kid!
  16. 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!
  17. 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)
  18. Thank you David!
  19. 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!!!
  20. 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.
  21. Looks super. That lighted lid is sweet!
  22. This doesn't shed much light, but of reference.
  23. Yep, officialfuel is correct (as usual!), not old. Looks nice and a fine spot for a sit.
  24. Repro. Easy to tell. The Hutch bottle was not depicted on the original image, for example.
  25. Both are commemorative/decorative reproductions.
  26. The paint is incredible. Super Object, Mr. Michael!
  27. Looks super! Really well done. Nice job on the logo, that couldn't have been easy.
  28. 1980's. Listed in Petretti's 12th Edition Collectibles Guide under "Recent, Reproduction, and Fantasy Items" section. Book value $10.
  29. One of several versions of the 1950's bottle sign thermometer. Unusual to see the hanger still attached, for some reason many are broken off on this one. Thousands upon thousands of bottle thermos w...
  30. Super Signage!
  31. 1930's sign manufactured by American Art Works out of Coshocton, O. Here's what it used to look like:
  32. Happy Thanksgiving bb2!
  33. Very hard to find this version in any size. Old, Big, and Beautiful! Nice one David!
  34. Wow, great condition! Looks super Bernie, congrats.
  35. Thank you mister Trey.
  36. Thank you CokeKid!
  37. Well, it's Haddon Sundblom art, 1955-ish, so a very nice piece regardless. A swell image.
  38. Thanks southjersey and pickr! Bern, can't wait to see the new room. You awesome brutha!
  39. The makers are equivalent, all things being considered equal. Westinghouse started making the Coke ice coolers in the early 30's, Cavalier within a couple years after. So Westy's were first and of ...
  40. The hits keep coming Michael. Another beauty.
  41. 1950's, pretty sure. It should have the copyright info and date at the very bottom, unless it's trimmed. Nice.
  42. It would have to be a labor of love. It's big and bad (in a good way!). Size is Giant. Maker likely Westinghouse or Cavalier. Collectors tend to go for the smaller versions, Junior or Master. S...
  43. Nice one! Here's a helpful resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  44. Nice clock JPSII. You're right about the hands, not original. These are off a Pam clock. Authentic are a different version, tapered inward at tips, finishing square.
  45. Looks to be pieced together. Not old. Minimal value.
  46. Big Prize, indeed. Beautiful old thermometer. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the original gauge, well protected set into the sign. And the 5¢ graphic makes it extra special. Nice score CK! Tha...
  47. Yowza! Please send that picker to my house Trey. ;0) So what are you going to do to remove that paper, soak 'n peel? 3 Beauties. Congrats.
  48. Nice wheels Kerry. You're going to need a Led Zeppelin cassette to go with that bad boy!
  49. Very cool. Never seen one. Awesome paper label with that old logo.
  50. They can be raised or smooth, depending on maker's print/finishing process.
