  1. Markings on bottom might give you an indication. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Coca-Cola-Cookie-Jar-/221538449765?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3394b87965 Nonetheless, you'll receive a lot of "Love it"...
  2. Would be interested in seeing a pic of unrestored....before and after.
  3. Nice assortment for a weekends work, Kid. The two metal signs are the hero. The other stuff is just fillers ti sweeten the pot. Pause for Living magazines are easy to come by and not expensive. Same g...
  4. "...the last leg of my collecting journey begins." What are you, a short term collector? You started, what, in 2011? Now you're on your last leg?
  5. A rookie mistake. I've seen many others on eBay being fooled by these benches and sellers listing those cast iron signs as "rare 1930s." Yep, WalMart from 1990s. I know because I bought one for $99 ba...
  6. robeo4: Doubtful these are being reproduced since they are printed on heavy cardboard and takes a lot of work to construct since these are so sturdy. That's why so many are still out there and so many...
  7. No Mani, but he thinks it is. More like $299. We'll see.... "It's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it." Isn't that what everyone says?
  8. Good investigative work tommy. And now I see what you referenced and the early CC logo on the front, it's clear that jimjonez probably isn't as old as we initially thought since his logo (Drink CC IN ...
  9. Jimjonez got the information he needed from us (you're welcome jimjonez!), deleted his coca-cola wooden cooler post and listed it on eBay already: http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-SCARCE-1920S-WOODEN-COC...
  10. I often wondered if you were playing with a full deck Edisonfan. Now I know. Nice deck. Always great to hear the history behind the item purchased. I usually make it a point to ask the seller about t...
  11. Made in Germany Company name is on plate: Innovative Kommunication Date is on plate (Datum): 07/07/1999 Just a decorative plate, probably collect each month plate. No serious value.
  12. See if it's stamped National Box Company anywhere (underside, under lids, stamped in the galvanized lining...) Just curious. Yep, you got the real deal. Probably not the most desirable, sought afte...
  13. Thanks for the high praise Phil!
  14. Thanks Dave, Edison, Mani and others who love this. Yes Mani, once I receive paper items, everything gets photographed, then the photo is saved with date of purchase and price. Then item is inserted i...
  15. Ya those bingo chip sheets have been showing up in large quantities lately. Still a great item. You can pick up lots of vintage paper items for low dollar amounts; a great way to add to your collectio...
  16. Thanks Edison and CokeKid. Teachers pets.
  17. Thanks Bernie and Edisonfan.
  18. Actually, Coke machines in schools is nothing new. The Coca-Cola Company placed vending machines in schools and colleges as early as the 1930s as well as sponsoring school dances (Hi-Fi Club, Talentsv...
  19. Nice early sign Dave. Running out of wall space? Nonsense. You have the entire house left and the garage.
  20. How to date these phones: Start by whispering sweet nothings in its receiver. Flowers and candy would be nice too. Ma Bell will be calling and you'll be having phone sex in no time. Hope this ...
  21. And I just found this online: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1181324/bio
  22. Nice sign with "character flaws." My kind of sign...maybe a bit roached but still a nice sign at an nice price. Spray this baby with Rust-B-Gon. It works as good as Wife-B-Gon. :)
  23. Try this website: http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=657&Itemid=14 They refer to these type of machines as "Select-O-Matic." You'll see different versions. This part...
  24. Hard to tell as so many of the openers have been reproduced and one would think if seller had an entire collection of antique openers, that seller would know value. Unless seller "inherited" the colle...
  25. Now what did I do?
  26. You got yourself a 1958 Acton Junior cooler. Daddy No_bucks has a similar one posted here. His DRINK is a different type style than yours: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/104052-1958-coca-cola...
  27. Nice 50s vinyl cooler. Amazing how many of these survived in great condition. I "love it."
  28. This sign: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1937-Drink-Coca-Cola-Coke-soda-pop-flange-sign-original-vintage-2-sided-rare-/361021289375
  29. The fact that you can't find another exact match is most likely a good sign that this is a one-of-a-kind clock made for the railroad milestone. That doesn't mean it's worth a lot. Daddy No_bucks, PI...
  30. I was just looking through some 1930 Coca-Cola Bottler magazines and noticed an ad for the Starr X bottler opener, which means these were around since 1930 or earlier. While these might've been produc...
  31. Those 4 coaster on cardboard were given out a Drive-Ins and movie theaters. The coasters would punch out and then the cardboard would hold four cups of Cokes to carry them back to your car or seat. A ...
  32. Thanks blunder from down under, Edisonfan, antiquerose and Spriteboy.
  33. Where did you pick these up? eBay or an antique shop. Just curious.
  34. Ya, "vintage" if you call made in the 1990s vintage.
  35. To add to that...to my knowledge, these two signs were never reproduced. The TAB sign probably isn't that much of a desirable sign but that Coke sign with the "Diamond Design" can on it is pretty rare...
  36. Thanks Daddy, CK and Mani and the other loves. Luckily I never got into playing golf. Quit golf. Don't quit collecting Coke
  37. Hey no fair Scott, I'm supposed to say that (A search on this site for Coke mirrors...). Okay, guess I'll say this: "That would be too easy." robbb did say he was unsure about it. Hopefully you did...
  38. Ya, I miss Betty. We had good times together. She always wore a hobbleskirt, which was hard to get into. All joking aside, I met a few models who posed for Coke trays. I'll post their pics soon. Go...
  39. Looks like Mrs Doubtfire to me.
  40. I've seen these before. Not highly collectibles because the Coca-Cola logo isn't prominently displayed. Odd that you don't see these more often though. Not sure what the production run was. They could...
  41. Yep. Used mostly at gas/service stations. A combination hand truck/display cart. Fill it with cases of Coke, roll it out and display it outside next to the gas pumps. From the late 60s, early 70s I be...
  42. I spoke too soon. You do have an original 1964 bottle. The ones reproduced in 1988 and 1989 are the Christmas bottle and have the Dec. 25, 1923 Patent date on them. I received this info from Doug McC...
  43. Right. And then we comment basically the same thing every time. I think some of this stuff should be located in a new category/section on CW: Coca-Cola Appraisals. And then CW can pay us for our ...
  44. Normally, these just screw off as they are attached to a threaded pole that the policeman is bolted to. That is, unless it's rusted to the base. And in some cases, I've seen them welded to the base. B...
  45. Sometimes questions can be answered by just searching previous CW posts, like these. I think I saw two exact matches of your mirror below: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/128267-1904-coca-c...
  46. Package up that base and mail it to me Dave. I'll repaint it and hand letter the script logo free of charge.
  47. The more I look at that cop, the more I think "you got a great looking policeman crossing sign." He's almost mint. Painting that base will make this the centerpiece of your collection Dave. Maybe ...
  48. Yep, another way to tell if it's original is the trademark is in the "tail" of the first "C" in Coca-Cola. Repro trays have the trademark right below the script logo. Like Daddy said; condition is rou...
  49. So I'm sure you'll be repainting the cast iron base, right? These should be repainted. A fairly easy task (easier if the policeman comes off of the based easily). Silver and red. Repainting will only ...
  50. Most likely someone added a Coca-Cola cap to this Pepsi bottle as a prank.
