  1. It sat outside a grocery or drug store that sold Coca-Cola by the case during the 60's. Restoration is a personal choice, but I don't see much benefit to doing so for this sign. Maybe some of the ot...
  2. I'll go out on a limb and say eBay generates more old Coca-Cola sign revenue than any other segment. The rise of on-line auctions and shows like "American Pickers" have helped popularize the lesser c...
  3. There are folks out there who like the beat up rusty old Coca-Cola signs for decorative value and affordability. You know I'm right. Send me another coupon.
  4. Yet again I find myself disagreeing with you Mr. TGBWC. The rusty, beat up Coca-Cola signs are more popular than ever.
  5. 1963 Rusty Gold.
  6. These are relatively new decorative or utilitarian promotional items, mass produced, so not valuable from a collecting perspective. They look to bring a buck or two on average.
  7. Signaholic calls these "man-tiques".
  8. There he is! Thanks Bernie!
  9. Boy, I'll say. Great find!
  10. hey Perry hope it's going good, thanks!
  11. Thanks scott. Nice to know you have had similar success. My favorite is when I make an offer and receive no response whatsoever and it just expires. It can also be frustrating to get a straight up ...
  12. Hi Edisonfan, thanks. Everybody here knows I'm a big fan of BIN deals. They have been the foundation of my collecting strategy. I do a little selling on eBay (mostly buying!), but don't have any...
  13. It will take time, research, and diligence to find a replacement piece off a like trash can. Probably costly to have refabricated. Not sure. Maybe somebody with metal work resto experience will know.
  14. I learned everything I know from an old-timer down in Orlando. Recently featured in Man Caves Magazine. Widely regarded as one of foremost collector/experts of Coca-Cola in the world. Sound familiar?
  15. It's all about the fun of sharing and learning and gaining experience while collecting old, authentic Coca-Cola ad pieces. CW does a great job of helping us do that electronically. Well done.
  16. Thanks CokeKid. It's a cool sign, let us know how you end up displaying it. Thanks TGBWC for the coupon! ;0)
  17. Yes absolutely it's an authentic sign. It looks to be what's commonly referred to as a "sled sign" because of it's shape.
  18. My personal taste is that I don't mind a little damage around the edges of old Coca-Cola signs, but stay away from anything where the logo is significantly obscured. Like everything else in life, the...
  19. The arciform (fishtail) logo is c. 1960.
  20. Towels for The Cave restroom are next! ;0)-
  21. I too have couch pillows and bedding around the Coke Cave to enhance display of my collection. And they are very useful when resting. I like the version you have and the price was definitely right, ...
  22. Yeah, I probably should go find my bifocals, I haven't seen them in a month. You don't think those numbers look a little funky, Kimosabe? Maybe CK can take a close up using a few more pixels. Loser...
  23. Can't agree with you on this one. It's obviously painted over, you can see the original number showing through the over paint.
  24. The price point has been altered. It originally listed 25¢.
  25. The old sales case racks aren't easy to find at a good price. Not unusual to see the price point altered on signs. I've always thought these racks would be great for displaying carriers or other col...
  26. Thanks CokeKid for your comments.
  27. Oh now you tell me!!! ;0)
  28. Well, the FBI office in Detroit was no help. The lady who answered the phone said all agents were busy investigating something called "Domestic Terrorism". Our taxpayer dollars at work! I guess this...
  29. "Thumbs Up" to that idea!
  30. These are all sought after items by collectors. Based on my experience building a collection primarily through on-line auctions (eBay,, Morphy Auctions), the tendency early on is ...
  31. You can access details about my collection by touching on my posting name/image. For the most part I've chronicled my collecting experience here on CW. There are number of others who post here who h...
  32. Best advice I ever received was to buy a copy of Petretti's 12th Edition Collectibles Price Guide. also has great content and a killer price guide which breaks down value by condition. ...
  33. Perfectly old and authentic. Nice one! These don't grow on trees, that's a sweet find. Congrats.
  34. Cheers! Thanks Edisonfan.
  35. She's a beauty - no doubt about it!
  36. Thanks Tommy! I've managed to contain my Coke collection to The Cave and I like it that way. blunderbuss, Some guys collect wives. Not me. I want to keep mine as happy and as long as possible (AND ...
  37. Oh, Nooooooooooooo!!!!
  38. I hear ya blunderbuss! Thanks for visiting.
  39. In this condition, value would be increased somewhat by restoration. But it's a finite market which is compounded by high shipping cost. Skill of restorer is a factor as well. Here's an auction for...
  40. Nice pics. Black and White never looked so colorful.
  41. #$%$#@ bugs!!!
  42. The folks at might be able to help. When I was replacing pieces of my Vendo, I called them numerous times for advice and parts. Also, one like this was posted on CW recently, you ...
  43. Sounds like it could be a potential rare find. Awesome.
  44. The image is from 1905 advertising pieces. Lillian Nordica was an opera singer and early Coca-Cola girl. This looks similar to the upper portion of the '05 calendar. But it's not exactly the same. ...
  45. TGBWC, the cover art on this grouping are particularly suited for display. Dynamite.
  46. Yes, according to Wikipedia. Ephemera (singular: ephemeron) is any transitory written or printed matter not meant to be retained or preserved. The word derives from the Greek, meaning things lastin...
  47. You have the right attitude. It's happened to all of us.
  48. Looks like a panel off a Vendo late 60's early 70's. They made several sizes.
  49. Yes, I believe it is a bottle from a contemporary collectibles set similar to this:
  50. I'm speechless... WOW!!!
