  1. I could tell tales of sign returns that would send shivers up your spine! If you aren't happy with it, send it back.
  2. Thanks V.v for the nice comment, I appreciate it. Edisonfan, I scored that bamboo fan for 40 bucks off an eBay BIN listing. It's the only one like it I've seen come up during my searches. Thanks ...
  3. Thank you Bernie.
  4. Looks good to me! Nice thermometer. I'm not aware there are reproductions of this version which aren't obviously so. I've seen them with additional "100-year Anniversary" print for example.
  5. Thanks Kerry, robeo4, and Mr. 50's.
  6. I always look for ya Perry!
  7. Thanks Edisonfan! I'm currently being subjected to an eleven and twelve year old... shudder... ;0)
  8. Thanks jpsthe second! Looking forward to your next post. Ray, that's what the youngsters call "a shout out" for Mr. Signaholic in da houussse! (maybe spending too much time around the kids...)
  9. Thanks Manikin, hope it's going good.
  10. Perry you rock!
  11. Sorry the link didn't take. Paste that into your browser and you'll see auction results.
  12. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40|R40|R40&_sacat=0&LH_Sold=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=&_sop=10&_dmd=1&_ipg=50&LH_Complete=1&_nkw=coca+cola+yellow+crate
  13. I don't think it being marked Tokyo adds significant value. Maybe a few of these still around in Japan. The yellow crates are common and sell for a modest range. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_f...
  14. It's a big sucker. Industrial size.
  15. Looks great robeo4 and nice job restoring functionality. It's in remarkable condition. The arciform (fishtail) logo piece looks wonderful, I imagine that is often damaged. Super piece.
  16. I bow to your Coca-Cola collecting greatness. Lucky.
  17. Helping is what the 8-Pack is all about and nobody's better at it than Mr. TGBWC. Or is it the 10-Pack now? I think this fob solidifies Edisonfan's admission.
  18. That "auction" listing price is 3x book value for a near mint piece, so don't get carried away with the ka-chings, nuts. Just showing it as an indicator this could be a fobulous find. ;0)
  19. Looks right to me. Somebody here will know for sure. I'm thinking a true blue incredible find Edisonfan. http://www.flyingtigerantiques.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=fta&Product_C...
  20. Nice Paper Ray!
  21. Thanks Bern!
  22. Thanks Bernie for checking in and the nice comment.
  23. Great collection! The cardboard sign above your vending machine is among my favorites. You have some great pieces mixed in there and displayed well. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing m...
  24. I'm afraid we already are and you're one of the clique!!!
  25. No background checks for charter members, Tommy. Or our club would be called "Coke Zero"!
  26. I took your recommendation to heart Ray and it stays. I think we could be the 12-Pack Club if we wanted. Assuming 4 more could pass the background checks... Thanks again.
  27. I appreciate it Edisonfan. I do love the BIN deals.
  28. Thank you Blaine and always great to hear from you. Hope it's going good.
  29. I never mind paying a little extra for something I really like. You'll make it up on your next deal.
  30. Bb2 I've noticed that as well. And blondes... and brunettes...
  31. Yep, but thank goodness for foam cups! ;0) Nice tray JPSII.
  32. Metals are a commodity. Manufacturers and buyers have been reducing material as a way of increasing profit / controlling cost, even back in the 50's.
  33. http://cocacolafaketrays.blogspot.com/
  34. There are authentic versions of this thermometer marked 495 and 495A. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1964-034-Thing-Go-Better-With-Coke-034-Round-Coca-Cola-Thermometer-/131277562055 Repros have the 4...
  35. There is an overall category called "Figurines". CW provides two opportunities to categorize, primary and secondary. Here is a great website to introduce you to the world of Coca-Cola memorabilia....
  36. You're rubbing off on me Mr. bluderbuss! I bow to your supreme sense of humor, my friend.
  37. Hard to say, this isn't one that comes up for auction much. It's a survivor, pretty rough. Finite local market, high shipping cost. Probably a couple three hundos to a motivated restoranteur. That...
  38. Hmmm... happy hour must have went long. Here ya go: http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=569&Itemid=14
  39. Please hold. All our cooler experts are out in the field or at day jobs, so you should get a response soon. Unless they stop by the bar, then sometimes it takes longer...
  40. Thanks Edfan. I am dee-lighted with these coasters. ;0)
  41. Thanks CokeKid. Sounds good to me too!
  42. Thanks blunderbuss, JPSII, and tommy. (Tom, sometimes I just have to turn the TV off! :0)
  43. Nice one. I'm always bullish on old, authentic Coca-Cola. I think you'll find you made a good investment with your '38 sign acquisition. Well done.
  44. Thanks Edisonfan. I'm much more comfortable buying the tin signs but liked this one because it doesn't need a frame and has great graphics (and it's all there).
  45. I acquired the '26 sign through a negotiated eBay BIN deal. Seller put it up for regular auction, I contacted him immediately asking if he would consider a "Buy it Now" deal, and he responded with a ...
  46. Super sled! If there was a fire and I only had time to grab one, it would be this beauty: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/69523-1926-coca-cola-tin-sign-8-1-2-x-11
  47. Cardboard rating is a bit of a mystery to me. Blaine's guide has a pretty good outline. http://earlycoke.com/grading-guide-for-cardboards.html
  48. Hoo-Boy, look at those mugs. I'm guessing it wasn't easy working for that board. How'd you like Mr. Whitten on your back to meet a deadline?!?!
  49. The carrier is definitely a "must have" item, filled with bottles or empty this will look great on display in your Coke Room. Nice one. Might even clean up a little.
  50. Now that's an old thermometer! Nice condition too considering it's wood. I've seen many in a lot worse shape. Never had a chance to buy one. Congrats.
