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. Collectors Weekly is without a doubt the best site of its kind. So I hang out here, watch Pickers and The Roadshow, to enhance my collecting experience. I am a member in poor standing of the exclusive-defunct 8-Pack Club, along with TGBWC, earlycoke, Signaholic, pickrknows, tommy1002, cocacolakid97, and coke.trevor.cola.

  1. It was a good guess 'rose! :0)
  2. 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 ...
  3. Another great snag Michael!
  4. 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...
  5. Neat little items of relatively recent manufacture. Part of an "Evolution of the Coca-Cola Bottle" miniature set.
  6. I do take pleasure in the little things, Sean, thank you.
  7. Trifecta. Hat Trick. All beauties.
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  10. Thanks Bob!
  11. Thanks Rattletrap. I don't mind a fountain Diet Pepsi once in awhile! I think it one ups Coke Zero.
  12. Thanks guys. CK, it cleaned up pretty good. Has seen some use but not bad for 70-80 years.
  13. Yes they do and they're easy to identify. The repros have the circle R only to the lower right of the logo. The authentic 50's-60's arciform signs will have trademark detail under the logo, either T...
  14. Ho-Ho-Home Run!
  15. The logo on the handles with just the circled R makes it a 90's utilitarian item.
  16. Always nice to snag a collection all at once, especially as nice as these. That's the best Rockford coaster I've seen. Well done Bernie! Sweeeeeeet!!!!
  17. The fakes complicate things and make collecting old/authentic "interesting", that's for sure. Here's the sign to which Robeo was referring.
  18. Yeah, saw those. At least not trying to pass of as original.
  19. These are referred to as "fantasy" pieces. Nothing like this has ever been put out by Coca-Cola. Many, like these, are poorly made and decorative rather than collectible.
  20. Coca-Cola's 100th anniversary was in 1986 and the poster depicts a 1916 advertising image. "Elaine".
  21. Looks great! And I see you found a nice spot for that King Size Coke sign.
  22. jpsII, see added image. The tail of the first C extends nearly to Cola on the 20's logo, and is nice and fat. If you look at the comparison, on the repro poster, the tail doesn't extend nearly enoug...
  23. Thanks Perry. I still haven't found another reference to these signs on line. Nothing about them out there.
  24. bb2, I'm still licking my wounds, LOL!!!
  25. And the thing about collecting Coca-Cola, we never graduate CK!
  26. Looks a lot like Emptynet's cooler. Trademark detail appears Canadian, approx mid-late 40's, something like that. Maybe one of our friends up north can weigh in.
  27. Beauties all!
  28. For that price you did good and it looks great. Careful, the carriers can be addictive! Good luck. ;0)
  29. Looks nice jps. I think the sign isn't original to the rack. That looks like the upper 1/4 of a 1950ish 17x54. If so, a good marriage. Will make for a sweet display stand for collectibles. Do you...
  30. Hold on. Make it 5. I forgot about Silhouette Girl and Traffic Cop.
  31. Thanks. That's an interesting point Perry. Hadn't thought of it, but I only have three.
  32. Thanks Trey! Yep, Harbor Beach is in The Thumb on Lake Huron, beautiful over there. Will look forward to seeing your new sign.
  33. Damn our lists! Mine keeps growing!!! :0) Thanks Chad!
  34. Me too, have yet to go international. Technically. I spent a lot of time in the Flint area back then. Dad worked for GM. It's a lot different now, some of it pretty sad obviously.
  35. Thanks Coke1234. (You were smart to head south!) Detroit's coming back, I still love that area, some great old architecture/history. Gilbert of Quicken is doing some fabulous things there.
  36. Thanks guys. It'll be sweet when the tulips bloom!
  37. Thank you Chad. I may have to take a nap on it to judge fully.
  39. Thanks Mani, I thought you would like it. And that's an authentic 50's headscarf over the rocker pad. They do look nice together.
  40. Thanks Perry and CK and bb2, LOL, don't need to be encouraged!
  41. It looks like something home made with a sticker slapped on it.
  42. Doll chair or plant stand of relatively recent manufacture.
  43. Nice trays and a sweet deal to be sure.
  44. Hi TT3, This is a common decorative piece from the 70's. Many versions were mass produced during the period around the bicentennial, when a nostalgia craze swept the nation. Value is nominal. htt...
  45. Thank you Bernie!
  46. Thanks Gents. Perry, I didn't realize this sign is actually mentioned in the Coca-Cola site link about Spriteboy until this morning. Chad, except for the lighting, the mock up was pretty da...
  47. Yep, that one's going to look good hanging.
  48. Super Snag CK!
  49. Yours is an early 1930's table top or single case model cooler by maker Glascock Bros. Side panel signage by W.F. Robinson. The lid and frame were originally painted green. You're missing a few thi...
  50. Leaded glass hanging lamps like this were all the rage in the 70's, many different Coca-Cola branded versions were mass produced for point of sale and the public.
