  1. Handy item, no doubt. Always happy to help another daddy (we need it! ;0)
  2. Thank you Bernie!
  3. 90's or later key chain bottle/can opener. Sometimes marketed as the "Triple Play" by maker Millusions. Can be used to flip open a can tab, twist open a bottle cap, or pry open a bottle crown.
  4. I'm guessing 50's, but not sure. Looks nice sitting next to the cooler radio, nearly scale. Smalls display has really taken off. Simply Delightful!!!
  5. Good stuff!
  6. Thanks Chad for the link and thanks Kerry too.
  7. Petretti's values at 135 in near mint condition. I think toys are down in general. Probably estimate 25%-50% of book is realistic.
  8. Price guides list as 1950.
  9. Certainly is and certainly do!
  10. I agree with Kerry, fantastic little piece. Another sweet snag Chad!
  11. Check that: C-55D
  12. Cavalier model C-55E.
  14. The Coke Can.
  15. Je suis désolé, that's a french version.
  16. If the letters are raised then yes it probably is an authentic international model (didn't factor that you are in Netherlands). Very boxy compared to the old American coolers. And the spacing of "Dr...
  17. Are the logo and letters raised? It doesn't look authentic, more like a generic cooler someone attempted to repaint in the style of Coca-Cola. At best it's authentic and was restored by a butcher. ...
  18. I'd almost forgotten how nice your collection is displayed. That off set space at the back is an incredible enhancement. Lends extra depth that really compliments the rest of the room.
  19. Yowza!!! :0)
  20. I'm not aware any of the old Vendo's originally had stickers. I always think of those as having been applied post-manufacture. None of the guides show them with stickers.
  21. A few red flags with this sign, any one of which isn't definitive, but when taken as a whole indicate this is probably not an old, authentic sign. A couple things you point out: Not in the guides and...
  22. I've never had one this old or nice! I saw that auction end and thought "somebody got a great deal." Glad it was you Chad. Fan-tastic!
  23. I would say for consumption 1 year.
  24. I'm a sucker for historical context. Also very nice to have something out of a collection of that caliber.
  25. Looks like a 1950's model 9022 picnic cooler by maker Hemp and Co.
  26. The '27 ad campaign is one of the best. What a year. Lindbergh landed in Paris. The Babe hit 60. Ford started selling the Model A. Coca-Cola signs and ad pieces from that period reflect the sens...
  27. Model is the 6 case Master Ice by manufacturer Cavalier Corp., Chattanooga, Tennessee. You interpret the date code correctly. The cap catcher fits on either side. Many times these were placed along...
  28. The Arciform or "Fishtail" logo is late 50's -early 60's. TGBWC campaign was kicked off 1963, so your piece is not too much older (could conceivably be from nearly same time period). Yes, the eBay l...
  29. Here's one similar, pics include brochure showing the rack "in action".
  30. Hat Trick! Great signs Trey.
  31. Here are a couple links to help you gauge authenticity and condition. This is a paper sign, and I see some corrugate on the back, not sure if that's the frame backing or maybe it's been glued/taped d...
  32. As many of these convention badges that were handed out, one would think there would be more of them on the market. They just don't come up all that much. But there's enough for everybody. I defini...
  33. Please feel free.
  34. The Arciform or "Fishtail" logo was used 1958-1963. Bigger isn't always better when it comes to displaying old Coca-Cola signs. Collectors tend to have limited wall space, so smaller signs are usual...
  35. Thanks Rattletrap. I agree, this is one of my favorites despite the chips.
  36. Yeah really shows just how nice of condition yours is in.
  37. Absolutely fantastic. Super piece Chad. I'm definitely feeling a pang of Coke Envy!
  38. Just ran across this one while doing my regular eBay BIN search:
  39. Great sign and helluva garage. Looks like a fun place to hang out.
  40. The only issue I see is where to hang it!?! Will look good wherever they land.
  41. Ah, the good old days, C1234. Too risky now.
  42. That's a sweet song of a sign. Collection looks awesome!
  43. Thanks Perry, good to hear from you. Hope all is well.
  44. Thanks C1234, appreciate it. I know you enjoy the nice signs based on a few I've seen you post. I hear you, none of the guides have it all. Petretti does a pretty good job. I even keep a copy of ...
  45. I've seen a few of the crystal Coke bottles sell on eBay, usually $50 range for a nice one or "special edition" versions. Some sellers call these paperweights. Novelty or gift items. Many have the ...
  46. Judging by the carton, 1920's. Never seen one before. We have a lot of Canadian Collectors here, perhaps they can offer more info.
  47. 1952, book value 500 smackers in near mint condition. Yours looks to be excellent which typically reduces value 33-50%. Great sign.
  48. I've always enjoyed the unique shape of this one. Super score!
  49. Fantastic tray and deal Bernie. Display looks nice too!
  50. Thank you Efan and Trey.
