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. Yowza! Please send that picker to my house Trey. ;0) So what are you going to do to remove that paper, soak 'n peel? 3 Beauties. Congrats.
  2. Nice wheels Kerry. You're going to need a Led Zeppelin cassette to go with that bad boy!
  3. Very cool. Never seen one. Awesome paper label with that old logo.
  4. They can be raised or smooth, depending on maker's print/finishing process.
  5. 1950's. These were displayed in a variety of ways. The big ones mostly on storefronts, one at each end of the marquee style sign with store name and offerings (Candy, Cigarettes, Liquor, etc... the ...
  6. Should be maker marked Neon Products Inc., if authentic c.1940. Hands are different than the example (which lists "repro alert" caution). Need to see shots of the back side and innards...
  8. A lot of stuff like this is new unlicensed contraband from India. Aman is a common surname there. Enjoyable as a decorative/utilitarian object. But not old or authentic.
  9. Looks like the production code contains year, '66 would be about right for this version. Great to see an international sign and interesting to see subtle differences vs. domestic U.S. Condition and ...
  10. Most of the time, Coca-Cola collectibles can be dated by the logo and trademark detail. has a nice reference:
  11. Looks Super Trevor!
  12. Shoot me an e-mail at and I'll send you the info.
  13. Thanks Trev!
  14. That fishtail version is hard to come by. Been on my list for a long time. Congrats!
  15. Nice score Michael.
  16. They look nice with the Coke cooler! Outstanding find.
  17. It's listed in 12th on page 258. Yours is missing a piece attached to the top, a decorative gold finish metal finial. Complete near mint one grand.
  18. Great Sign Dave. I'd hang it in my living room too!
  19. Here's a nice cooler info resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  20. Plenty of cool there. Fly boy wings logo and birds eye view of battle ships. Plane silhouettes streaking across the wild blue yonder. Kay Displays signs are great. Looks good!
  21. Thanks Mani for saying so. I do too! Bernie, Good luck with the move, that sounds like a lot of work. But it'll be worth it when you can kick back in the new digs enjoying the rest of your collec...
  22. 90's or later based on the trademark detail. They look to be in great shape.
  23. Hi fleafinder, Mostly it's cheap labor of mass produced goods.
  24. Thanks David! Coca-Cola 5¢ :0)
  25. Thank you CK! Your Madge Evans tray is super.
  26. Thanks Jim. I hung it in the basement bedroom, which made me realize I probably have some wall space to fill in there. Uh-oh. ;0)
  27. Yep, I had one, same version, with the leather strap. Agree with Mr. pickrknows, original handle.
  28. I have three chalk menu boards myself and agree they can be enchanting. That 30's version is among my favorites, very nice (I don't have that one).
  29. Nice sign. It's the mystery of the MCA production codes. Not sure anybody's figured it out here.
  30. Nice of seller to collect the matchbooks for you. Great item complete like this.
  31. Yep fantasy item. Pg 614 Petretti's 12th.
  32. Super Score Trey!
  33. I hate the No Golfing sign!!!! ;0)
  34. Thank you Trey!
  35. Yep, very nice piece, hard to come by. Congrats.
  36. Thanks Bern good to hear from ya!
  37. Sweet Sign and Cute Munchkins!
  38. Your cardboard insert was 27"x58" before it was cut down. Here's a missing piece of the puzzle, the badminton picnic.
  39. Thank you Jim! Yes, very warm and dry last month. Good golf and swim weather. Keep up the flange effort. Still good to fair deals out there.
  40. Thanks Chad. Fairly common sign but not so easy to buy at a decent price. If Petretti ever gets #13 published, I'm certain this version will show good increase in value (vs. #12).
  41. Thanks EJW, he's 12 and every utterance is a nugget. Yep bb2, the lad needs to learn!
  42. 1960's grocery display sign, was attached to a wire or metal rack full of cartons to enhance point of purchase.
  43. 1886-1936 would be the Fiftieth Anniversary. Somebody failed math.
  44. There is an original cardboard display of this from the 1936, measuring 29" x 50." See Petretti's 11th edition Coca-Cola price guide, page 146.
  45. The image is from the 1936 serving tray, "Hostess Girl". The poster itself is a later decorative item. Relatively new when your dad found it. No old, authentic sign like this. Fantasy piece.
  46. Here's a nice resource put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted:
  47. I spy Coca-Cola signs! Very nice Mani.
  48. Looks good. This logo is called the Arden Square with Dynamic Ribbon. 70's-80's. Nice snag.
  50. Super vending machine Michael. These are the Coke collector's equivalent to the Petroliana collector's gas pumps. Hard to find but you simply gotta have one! Just in time for the 4th of July. Fill...
