  2. Thanks Jim. This is my third flange sign. Not easy to find the right spot for display, as they can block the view of other signs. But I like the depth they provide visually. Hope it's going good.
  3. I agree, breathed a little life into it.
  4. It's a contemporary decorative item in the shape of an 1890's Coca-Cola clock by maker Baird Clock Co.
  5. Nice old Standard Ice Cooler by Westinghouse or Cavalier. Does not appear to be an electric model. Here's a nice resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  6. Thanks Chad!
  7. Is it battery powered?
  8. Hey Bernie thanks man, yep, my wife is still polishing me up!
  9. Thank you EJW and you too, congrats on the new old pump. I had my eye on one at our local hardware, but owner wanted a very large sum for it. Maybe someday.
  10. Thanks Guys!
  11. It's a contemporary nostalgic/commemorative item or a plain jug to which someone applied the logo. Old ceramic Coca-Cola jugs had paper labels.
  12. Excellent Info Bern!
  13. hey jersey, info on the international signs, unless they're early, is very hard to come by I've found. I think the translastion of this sign is "Ice Cold Coca-Cola Drink It". Pretty straightforward!...
  14. Great find Michael!
  15. Nice 1914 Jim and great deal!
  16. Unusual to see the corner guards on the lid. Canadian cooler, looks like? If so, St. Thomas was a maker up north during the 50's. Maybe one of our picnic cooler pro's will weigh in with more info.
  17. Trademark detail dates it to 1990's or later. Decorative. Doesn't look to need cleaning too badly, just wipe down front surface with a damp cloth.
  18. Great Carriers Trev!
  19. Thanks MPB. I hadn't seen your Nehi version, very cool and I'm guessing very scarce. Funny how it's a 20's update of the earlier image, with the clothing and hairstyles changed. It wouldn't surpris...
  20. Original hanger too. Nice snag. Here's another example.
  21. Interesting to see one of these, haven't run across one. This would have been a stock plain thermometer which was printed with whatever the customer specified upon order. If you just Google up R. Ho...
  22. It's not an original barrel nor label. Old Coca-Cola barrels are red and don't have clock numbers on the label.
  23. Thanks Spencer!
  25. The Arciform logo was used late fifties - early sixties. AM is sign maker Allen-Morrison. 91 is their production code.
  26. Nice to see that you're still collecting Spriteboy. I see you still have the knack. If I recall, you sniff out the sweet deals. Great sign!
  27. I've always thought one of these wouldn't look bad hanging on the wall. I may try it. Yours is a great one Bern, the 25¢ detail isn't on them all.
  28. It takes an artist's touch Bernie, and looks like you have it!
  29. Nice one! Yes I believe it did have hubcaps. Came with loose mini cartons and dolly as well.
  30. Glad to hear it Kerry. Everything here is good too. Trying to have a little fun once in awhile!
  31. Thanks Kerry! Hope it's going good sir.
  32. Thanks Jim, Chad, and Trey. Jim, Are we ready to move south yet? Snowing in The Lower Peninsula mid-May, wow!!! Trey, I love the upgrades. Funny how things like that happen. Chad, Hopef...
  33. Thank Bernie! Sticking to the small ones these days.
  34. Thanks CK it was painful! But a decent deal considering condition. I've enjoyed your recent sweet snags.
  35. This is a lamp that somebody customized or refurbished by adding the Coca-Cola theme. The logo is sloppy and doesn't have trademark detail. Still looks nice, I can see a collector using it to displa...
  36. Very attractive decorative time piece. Logo on bottle cap base dates it to 90's. Nice that you've kept it in the family.
  37. Beauty! Good timing. I've not seen one of these before.
  38. Nice one, hard to find these without corner damage.
  39. That will display nice Jim. The mini carrier is pretty cool. Great accent piece.
  40. It was a good guess 'rose! :0)
  41. Allen-Morrison is the sign maker and the number is a production code. Not sure anyone's found the secret decoder ring to completely decipher. "Sign of Good Taste" slogan was introduced 1957, so the ...
  42. Another great snag Michael!
  43. Hold on CK, you're the one stringing together hits lately! Nice sign A157157. Mostly the pre-70's signs are highly sought after in the Coke collecting world. But more recent ones with the "wow fa...
  44. Neat little items of relatively recent manufacture. Part of an "Evolution of the Coca-Cola Bottle" miniature set.
  45. I do take pleasure in the little things, Sean, thank you.
  46. Trifecta. Hat Trick. All beauties.
  47. Looks nice, I've always wanted a button this version. Goldilocks Sign (just the right size). I believe these were screen painted. The print edges become less sharp the more the screen is used. The...
  48. Thanks Chad, me neither. motor, shown on pg 511 in Petretti's 12th, and the earlier editions, described as "c. 1930-1940, bone handle with wire opener". I suppose his research could be wrong.
  49. Thanks Bob!
  50. Thanks Rattletrap. I don't mind a fountain Diet Pepsi once in awhile! I think it one ups Coke Zero.
