  1. 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 ...
  2. Thanks blunder from down under, Edisonfan, antiquerose and Spriteboy.
  3. Where did you pick these up? eBay or an antique shop. Just curious.
  4. Ya, "vintage" if you call made in the 1990s vintage.
  5. 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...
  6. Thanks Daddy, CK and Mani and the other loves. Luckily I never got into playing golf. Quit golf. Don't quit collecting Coke
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. Looks like Mrs Doubtfire to me.
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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 ...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. Package up that base and mail it to me Dave. I'll repaint it and hand letter the script logo free of charge.
  17. 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 ...
  18. 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...
  19. 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 ...
  20. Most likely someone added a Coca-Cola cap to this Pepsi bottle as a prank.
  21. This is actually a reproduction bottle produced in 1989. You can tell the repro bottles by the circular line connecting the city and state.
  22. So you cross the border to get your booty? Do the guards suspect anything or do the guard dogs sniff your "package"?
  23. Let me guess; 99¢
  24. 99¢ ya right. Nice try Bernie. Expecting us to believe you bought this for under a dollar. Is that Canadian 99¢ or USA 99¢?
  25. Ah...I've done that before. Anyway, nice newer machine. Not one seen that often. This will be the next generation of collectible Coke machines.
  26. That's a beauty and an investment. Great restore to bring it back to life.
  27. Great idea Edisonfan. Contact CW about it. And thanks to all for your comments.
  28. I would use a very damp soft cloth and carefully clean because the top layer of the masonite might rub off. Masonite is tough to clean because of its porous material and excessive water will ruin the ...
  29. Thanks Dave and Bernie!
  30. Nice one. This might clean up a bit but be careful. Sure beats buying a pillow. I'm just saying....
  31. Thanks Mani (can I call you Mani?) Don't get used to it, as I'll probably turn ugly again once another fake item is posted. Or not.
  32. Thanks for the clock info Kerry. I wasn't interested in buying it, just thought you might know about it. I'm going to delete your comment on my most recent post since it has no connection to that post...
  33. You posted this twice. Same machine or do you own two of them?
  34. Nice machine. Does it run, keep cool still? And we'll expect to see your second Coke machine posted right about..............................................................................now!
  35. These early signs used silkscreen methods for printing I believe. Each color was put down separately. It appears that the green might've been one silkscreen pass but not sure why it would be on the ba...
  36. BIN is short for Buy It Now. Some eBay auctions have the option to Buy It Now for a set price or you can do the traditional bidding. And your New Coke junk is welcomed here Bigsarge. Everyone's pre...
  37. Yes, why would anyone LOVE this? Too many collectors on here click on that LOVE IT button without really know what the eff they are loving. Like scottvez said: "Why would anyone love this junk!" And t...
  38. Thanks Emptynet, CK and others.
  39. kyoung620: You came to the right place to authenticate your item. Ya, you received much more comments than you expected I'm sure. When you have a dozen collectors getting together and posting opinions...
  40. BTW, for those collectors that own Petretti's 12th Edition Coca-Cola Collectibles Price Guide, turn to pages 612 and 613. There you'll see this exact item shown as well as other items created by ripof...
  41. Signaholic: Exactly how did I "go too far" by informing poster and "lovers" of this that it's a made up, worthless item? Was it the "made up" or the "worthless" statement that went too far? Or maybe i...
  42. I knew that. Just kidding with you Mani. Seems like the thunder has died down a bit. Of course, we've yet to hear from fifties50s. :)
  43. 3 "exports" in Coke? Maybe we should be exported. :)
  44. Yes, I know they did. I did my share of mock-ups in art school. But trust me, this is not one of them.
  45. Right. Advertising class assignment. Now there's one the scammers didn't think of. "Rare, one-of-a-kind advertising class assignment project, created in the 1940s. Discovered behind the walls of a ...
  46. Thanks Scott. I read somewhere that only 10% of The Beatles autographs on the market are authentic, as the Beatles didn't sign many autographs. Arrowheads are another fake item. More arrowheads on ...
  47. Manikin: I don't think Daddy was implying that the poster posted this to demean. He was referring to the "faker" who created this piece. And I agree with Manikin, that these Black Americana collectibl...
  48. Manikin: Where did the poster say he/she loved it as a decorative piece? He/she said "Don't know much about this item..." I was merely educating. I don't "sugar-coat" the truth. There's nothing "decor...
  49. You didn't "hurt" me Virginia "vintage." "Who cares if it's made up?" I care. And I care enough to warn others about this "made up" crap that is being pawned off and sold to unsuspecting collectors...
  50. WHY IS ANYONE LOVING THIS?? It's a fake, made up item, meant to scam unsuspecting novice collectors into thinking they have an old item. This just proves that people "LOVE" items on here without re...
