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.

  1. Festoon elements maybe. And 3 ink blotters.
  2. Interesting sign from right around 1960. This type was made to fit over existing signs as a cost efficient update. I've not seen this version before, very nice. I'll post the one I have so you can ...
  3. LOL Dave I always wondered about that! ;0)
  4. Still, presented well.
  5. I don't think I've ever seen that paper label before. Has to be rare for that to remain in place. Super cooler.
  6. It's a beauty. Hard to tell from the pics, is there trademark detail printed in the tail of the first long C in the Coca-Cola logo? If so, likely original paint.
  7. Here's a helpful resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted: https://sites.google.com/site/idcocacolachestmachines193459/home
  8. Looks like the top section of a calendar.
  9. The Coca-Cola logo is referred to as the "Fishtail" or more formally Arciform (bow-like) and was in use 1958-1963. Sign is marked with maker Robertson Sign Co. and manufacture date April 1963. Nice ...
  10. I paid about 3 for this one five years ago. Signs are hot now.
  11. If excellent condition or better, that's on the high side but not too bad.
  12. Congrats on 30 Bern. Nice '71!
  13. Yes it's a fantasy collectible of relatively recent manufacture. Many versions exist. Coca-Cola never put out anything like it. Nice decorative piece. http://www.ebay.com/itm/COCA-COLA-CAST-IRON...
  14. Nice fakes.
  15. Thank you Perry!
  16. Thanks Bern. I wasn't sure if the insert was something put in there to make it more interesting. But I was able to find similar examples and location of the item was a good indication. Didn't reali...
  17. Well done bb2. You really are The Most Interesting Man in The World!
  18. http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=303&Itemid=14
  19. 1930's. I've seen the porcelain logo signs many times, those can bring 200-300 each or more depending on condition. I've never seen them still attached to the cooler before. The coin mechanism too ...
  20. Early 50's. Originally a self framed piece, the raised edges have been trimmed. Smart to wear gloves while handling. Not a lot of value in this condition, but still enough there that someone might ...
  21. Hilda had blue eyes. The original 1901 paper sign is referred to as "The Girl with Yellow Roses". The reproduction sign is easily identified by the "Our Favorite" writing on the corner of the table,...
  22. Logo and slogan date it as early-mid 1960's. Size is "Giant". Maker likely Cavalier or Westinghouse. Common for the evaporator fan to fail on these old electric coolers. I prefer the white and re...
  23. Late 30's, right around there. http://earlycoke.com/logo-through-the-years.html
  24. Trademark is sometimes in that position on the push bars, that marking looks right to me. Could be a resto job on the ends. Might be easier to tell from the back side. Hard to see, it looks like th...
  25. Late 30's. Nice find.
  26. Sounds like fun Perry. Always nice to mix in a little "business" with the pleasure. Monkey Business. LOL! Sorry, man. Had too many comments working!!!
  27. Very Cool!
  28. Thank you Music Man!
  29. Thanks Perry, not too many out there I don't think.
  30. Hey Bernie thank you.
  31. Yep Pat. D. was '37-'48.
  32. Many amazing pieces Perry, this one is off the chart. So cool.
  33. Flange sign display look great Michael.
  34. Thank you David
  35. Thanks courtenayantiques for saying so, me too!
  36. A couple beauties for sure Perry. Condition looks real nice. Love this era of the cardboard signs. Dig the fashions and that old phone! Great that the pair are from the same period and both "home ...
  37. Here's a helpful resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted: https://sites.google.com/site/idcocacolachestmachines193459/home
  38. Thanks Bern!
  39. "Only 40" of these made. http://www.ebay.com/itm/192138462342?rmvSB=true
  40. Yep there's not really a market for new high quality Coca-Cola collectibles. It's either serious collectors who go after the old stuff or decorative/novelty collectors who go for cheap stuff. Nice p...
  41. Yes you're right, it's a knock-off. Logo and slogan are decals.
  42. Thank you Chad. Framer did a nice job. They seemed amused that I had mock up pics and specific instructions on dimensions of frame and matte. The only thing they couldn't do was cut the matte to ke...
  43. Thanks CK, I'm with you, a little time capsule with enough imagination.
  44. Looks like a 40's Half Junior. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/70252-updated-pics-of-half-junior
  45. The gold logos show a circle immediately to the right of Coca-Cola. That's a 90's or later registered symbol. Coca-Cola sells licensing rights to manufacturers who slap the brand on just about anyth...
  46. If you notice the other logos have circle R trademark, dates to 1990's or later.
  47. You've got plenty of wall space, hang it! :0)
  48. The original image is from 1901 advertising, referred to as "Girl with Yellow Roses". Coca-Cola didn't put out anything like this at the time, it's a made up "fantasy" decorative piece from the 1970'...
  49. Like a long lost love found again! ;0) Looks great Michael.
  50. It's a fun novelty item but not old nor anything put out by Coca-Cola. The artistry is really creative. "Refreshing and Delicious" instead of "Delicious and Refreshing". Nude woman (Asa Candler is ...
