I collect old, authentic Coca-Cola signs and ad pieces. I love prowling eBay and pulling the trigger on a sweet BIN deal.

  3. 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...
  4. "Thumbs Up" to that idea!
  5. 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 ...
  6. 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...
  7. 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. ...

  12. Oh, Nooooooooooooo!!!!
  13. I hear ya blunderbuss! Thanks for visiting.
  14. 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...
  15. Nice pics. Black and White never looked so colorful.
  16. #$%$#@ bugs!!!
  17. 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 ...
  18. Sounds like it could be a potential rare find. Awesome.
  19. 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. ...
  20. TGBWC, the cover art on this grouping are particularly suited for display. Dynamite.
  21. 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...
  22. You have the right attitude. It's happened to all of us.
  23. Looks like a panel off a Vendo late 60's early 70's. They made several sizes.
  24. Yes, I believe it is a bottle from a contemporary collectibles set similar to this:
  25. I'm speechless... WOW!!!
  26. Great grouping of signs you have there, fifties!
  27. Your extensive archive grows even more impressive, TGBWC. Nice Paper.
  28. Great sign fifties. Nice job with the unresto. I agree it looks better now. The bottle on that sign is super.
  29. Thanks Tommy. I try to sell a little on a regular basis to off set my overpays. Most of the time it works (though not always!). Thanks for your comment, I appreciate it.
  30. Not likely to find anything out there like it. Certainly not in this kind of condition. That's one beautiful crate Ray.
  31. Wood and Paper have a lot in common, ya know... Nice Snag, Mr. TGBWC!!!
  32. Lot of good info in that listing link.
  33. Here's a restored one that just popped up on eBay (not sure if these actually sell for that kind of price):
  34. Early 50's, 17", Maroon Coca-Cola Clock, by American Time Corp out of Springfield, Mass. If you are the patient and persistent type, these clock hands or similar can be found on eBay from time to ti...
  35. Always good to hear from you Mr. Signaholic. Thanks!

  39. Thanks antiquerose. Yes, lessons learned is part of collecting too.
  40. Good luck on your journey, Edisonfan.
  41. Thanks Bern! You didn't run me up too bad, I appreciate it. Perry and I locked horns not too long ago as well. Hazard of the trade, I guess... The 8-pack needs to work on coordination. ;0)
  42. Thank you blunderbuss.
  43. Thanks CokeKid!
  44. Looking good CK! I see you have wide ranging interests like a lot of us. I started with signs... then carriers... then coolers... then smalls... then, then, then. It's one of the great things about...
  45. Let's just say as a gift the sign would be equivalent value of a very nice bouquet of flowers. And it will last a heck of a lot longer.
  46. With Coca-Cola signs, age, condition, rarity, and size all impact value. It used to be that a relatively common large 1960's sign in rough condition had more scrap than collectible value. But that h...
  47. Great story! 12 years later, not a lot of time for it to gain value. The CC stuff pre-1970's is at a premium collectible in the current market. So hold on tight to your bottle and story, the memory...
  48. Looks to be trade mark circle R, which would date it to 1950 or later. That is a big chunk of cool. Not something you see every day!
  49. Good stuff Kerry. I'm not aware there is an old, authentic Coca-Cola pocket watch. I believe they are all fantasy pieces.
  50. It's a 1938 cooler by Cavalier. Toolbox has a nice resource (maybe he'll stop by soon with some words of wisdom): Also, a coupl...
