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. Super Score Sir!
  2. Nice picnic cooler Bernie! One of the nicer condition pieces that I've seen (haven't seen many, you're right).
  3. Nice job of historical preservation, looks great.
  4. You been busy Michael! ;0)
  5. Sweet find in great condition Mr. officialfuel.
  6. Chalk up another nice score, CokeKid!
  7. Sweet jar Chad. You definitely snagged a great deal. Awesome, really looks nice the way you have it displayed.
  8. OK too weird, this just popped up on eBay. Yep, mystery solved. http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-RARE-HAROLD-GALE-SANTA-COKE-7-UP-AND-DR-PEPPER-1970S-MAILERS-PRICE-LIST-/111515630074?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_...
  9. Maker is Harold Gale, Co. I think age is an open question. Could be 70's. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_sop=3&_nkw=harold+gale+santa&_frs=1
  10. I'll be dad gummed. Soda pop series promotional items, it appears. Good detective work Jewels. fortapache's Santa has a 7up logo that looks to be 1980's, so stands to reason this one is from the sa...
  11. That's a beauty! The glass thermometer doesn't impact value/display a bit. It's the sign itself that matters. Nice one.
  12. This is a great piece and yours looks to be in excellent condition. I've read this booklet a couple times. Interesting too how this type of advertising material was written a hundred years ago. Wor...
  13. In Coca-Cola collecting, this is referred to as a fantasy piece. Not a copy of an old, authentic sign, but a made up piece of relatively recent manufacture. Nice decorative appeal. http://www.eba...
  14. Thanks bintang!
  15. Thanks Trey!
  16. This is an example of a cigar that's good for you. That's one sweet stogie sign!
  17. Such a beautiful home doesn't just happen. Well done, Jewels.
  18. Yep, talk about an unwelcome guest, brrrrrr!
  19. Thanks Tom. Great to hear from you. Hey, I understand our pal from last year, Polar Vortex, will be visiting us again soon. Let's hope not so long this year! Looking forward to seeing you post so...
  20. Thanks everybody. Ray, I'm always up front with the boss. Sean and upstate, you're exactly right. Part of collecting is stepping up once in awhile. I've been looking for something to put there for...
  21. Thanks CK-04 for the nice comment, hope it's going good.
  22. Not a repro handle, just a variation. Mine has a handle like yours. I've seen the opener in a couple different positions as well. Not unusual for manufacturers to make changes year to year when ret...
  23. I agree the Acton Mfg coolers are very nice, especially in original condition. But Cavalier has the "airline" cooler (the most collected and highest valued of the old Coca-Cola picnic coolers). Bi...
  24. Here's a cool period Acton ad. http://www.vintagevending.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/acton_products_ad.jpg
  25. A contemporary Coca-Cola sign with not a lot of value, but a nice decorator piece nevertheless. These frequently come up for auction on eBay. Not sure I've ever seen one sell. http://www.ebay.com...
  26. Hey Trey, Only the two that I'm aware.
  27. Looks great Edisonfan, well displayed. I like the way you have the cap framed with the soda jerk ad.
  28. For sure keep the faith and good luck follows. The good stuff for cheap is out there. I'm an avid BIN searcher, about an hour a day total (5 minute increments, 12 times a day). I scan most recent 250...
  29. A few things stand out. The Arciform (Fishtail) shape logo is 1960ish. The tradmark detail moved out of the tail of the first C to under the script in 1940-41. "Trademark Reg." is usually associate...
  30. Thanks jameyrd, good to hear from you!
  31. sssshhhh Ray!
  32. Thanks Bernie! Lucky timing. Hey Chad, I double clutched my PayPal password trying to close the deal asap. It's the thrill of the hunt.
  33. Me too, Virginia! Thank you.
  34. Thanks Chad. Here was the listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Coca-Cola-Highball-fold-over-Pretty-girl-in-Bathtub-postcard-Western-Bottling-Co-/161465966657 All the repro's of this card I've seen ...
  35. Thanks Ray, great tip. Checks out. See added pic. Correct dot pattern shows most clearly on the glass. Hey Jewels, I agree, advertising has changed in a hundred years/ Look at those two ogres, ...
  36. AM 4-4 is the maker's production code. Allen-Morrison Sign Co., April 1944. Masonite was used instead of metal because of the war effort. I have a smaller version of your big, beautiful sign. Send...
  37. Looks nice too. Not one seen a whole lot on eBay. Only a dozen or so earlier versions, so a scarce classic tray. 's a nice snag.
  38. Yes, we'd love to see more of your collection. Looks like it's always CokeTime at your place!
  39. I'd say VG to VG+ based on Blaine's guide. http://earlycoke.com/grading-guide-for-trays.html
  40. That is a nice one and looks great displayed on the jack-o-lantern. These don't turn up often so you were fortunate to successfully work a deal.
  41. I've never seen one of these. Great looking piece. Could be nice for displaying Coca-Cola smalls or even carriers. Bottles for sure. I've acquired about 100 old hobbleskirts off eBay over the yea...
  42. These are very hard to come by. I would leave "as is" as well.
  43. It's really hard to tell from the photos exactly what's going on there. The "Drink" lettering looks redone. The surface on the left hand side of the sign appears rough, almost like it was ground dow...
  44. Looks to be at the very least poorly restored. http://www.aubreysantiques.com/cokematch1apr17-2014.jpg
  45. Also, Red_red, I'm a little disappointed you chose to come out of semi-retirement to question such an obviously authentic sign (high quality, trademarked, maker marked, etc.). I thought your reemerge...
  46. "Remember that a lot of the fishtale stuff showed up as plants were sold in the 70's and 80's so there are a lot of really good condition 60's items out there." - earlycoke, 2011
  47. Wow that looks spectacular and great idea with the magnets. The fishtail dates it to be 1958-1963 thereabouts. Great sign!
  48. You got a very good price on this one. Beautiful sign. Lucky.
  49. It's going to look nice wherever you hang it, that's for sure. Nice one.
  50. The "cigar" thermometer comes up for auction frequently on eBay. With a little luck, a nice one can be had for a couple hundred bucks. In excellent+ condition they generally sell for 3-4. But a goo...
