  1. Killer sign that's going to look great on the wall.
  2. Thank you Lady Rose!
  3. Thank you kerry and Trey.
  4. You've sent me a lot of good advice Bern. Thanks!
  5. Super. I see another one peeking in to the right. Elaine's sister?
  6. Write it down, great old mechanical writing implements.
  7. Hi and thank you Julie Jewels, hope things are good with you!
  8. Thanks Dave. Yep I agree. Pieces that have provenance involving other collectors whom I admire are special to me. A jug from Blaine. Napkin from Ray. Tin from Tommy. Booklet from Perry. T-shirt...
  9. Thanks Chad. It's fun to move things around within a collection. I like how this display turned out. Something a little different. I've become somewhat of a curator when my kids friends visit the ...
  10. Great little piece of CC history with the Fowle and Sons tie in. These coupons are hard to find. Looks super and a very nice grouping of old, authentic pieces.
  11. c. 1940. Westinghouse made many sizes of Coca-Cola branded ice and electric coolers. The two smallest are Junior and Half Junior. The Half Junior was countertop. But it's not unusual to see Junior...
  12. Uh-oh, kicking it up a notch, Hal! I call it Sweet 1918 Festoon... or Backbar Beauties.
  13. Thanks Trey!
  14. Gotta love bonus items. I also could be wrong, but based on recent research I would say 1930's. In 1930's the trademark detail was changed from Trademark Registered to Trademark Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. ...
  15. That price is fair, sure.
  16. Petretti's 12th, pg 378.
  17. 1950's.
  18. Hey Bernie, thanks man. I need an '08 and '20 before I call it quits on the pocket mirrors (don't bother hoping for a '22 or '31). You know, I may have to get a tablet affixed to the steering wheel ...
  19. Interesting piece. That maker's label makes it extra special, can't imagine many of those survived either. The bottlers did their own thing back then. Great first post. I see you collect the early...
  20. lists this one as 1939.
  21. LOL yer killing me Tommy! Played first round of the year early yesterday morning. Like an old outdoor sign at the roadside antique shack, my game showed A LOT of rust... Thanks Brutha!
  22. Ah, "Elaine". 1916. Congrats JPSII, there's nothing quite like being a father. And sounds like your baby has a good eye, just like Dad. Nice early tray that will be 100 years old before you know i...
  23. Thanks. I like the necklace she's wearing. I don't think I've seen that logo version on anything else.
  24. I always appreciate your comments CK-04, thank you!
  25. Thank you Sir David!
  26. Yes it should have an electrical cord. My advice would be to pass. $200 will buy a nice condition tin sign that will hold or increase value. You'd have to put $200-$400 on top of purchase price to ...
  27. 1948 lighted counter sign by Price Bros. price guide lists it at 425 in very good condition. Condition is a concern, the logo is just about completely gone. In my opinion, it's $100 s...
  28. 70's nostalgia tray depicting the 1921 calendar top image. No value as a collectible considering this and condition.
  29. I'll second that. Nice string of Coca-Cola sign postings.
  30. Here's your mirror in better condition. Interesting description by auctioneer. I personally would give great weight to the first sentence. Best of luck solving your mystery Charles. http://jame...
  31. Looks good to me, well done David!
  32. Many mirrors similar to this one have been produced since the 70's. All of them are fantasy. Coca-Cola never produced pub style mirrors such as these. -
  35. Great sign and placement, looks super.
  36. Nice. 1956 cardboard insert. The aluminum frame is right, but might be a little later 1960ish.
  38. Thank you Bernie!
  39. Thanks Mr. E! My Atari system is hidden behind the counter sign... :0)
  40. Thank you sarah and Trey for your comments. sarah, book value refers to Petretti's 12th Edition list price, "the bible" for Coca-Cola collectors. Tray aficionados are serious condition freaks, only ...
  41. Me too, I thank the heavens for my GPS! :0) Thanks Valentino.
  42. Thank you V.v, nice to hear from you!
  43. Thanks Sean and to you as well.
  44. Awesome blotter Chad!
  45. Your pub mirror was made in the 1970's and is considered a fantasy sign (there was no original mirror like this from 1900). The image of the early Coca-Cola girl, Hilda Clark, is from the 1901 calend...
  46. Hit and Run! Good strategy. Great carton.
  47. $20 was a steal, very nice.
  48. Happy Easter Bernie, thank you. I agree, but we're having a lot of fun, that's for sure!
  49. 1990's or so.
  50. Thanks and hi Eric!
