  1. Don't think so Edison. I think they're made out of wood. I did find what my little bottles belong to. Posting now.
  2. Not being a tray guy, I'd say good but hard to tell based on this one potos. Can't see details like rim wear, backside....
  3. Nice to finally see some of your collection red.
  4. So how much did you snag this for? Because Pet. 12th edition values this at $25. Personally I think that's a bit low for something this old and IMO, rarely found.
  5. A similar Santa is on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-HAROLD-GALE-COCA-COLA-SANTA-STORE-DISPLAY-40-TALL-/151450638619 Although your Santa seems a bit odd. The logo as the belt buckle seems l...
  6. The gold metal bottles; not sure yet. Possibly from a miniature case. They aren't key chains because they don't have that little metal loop on the bottle cap.
  7. Yep, I go myself two complete sets...along with another complete set I already had. Pretty rare to find the eraser still with these or in a recognizable condition. Most melt and stick to the inside of...
  8. See Daddy, soda jerk cap collection not complete. Nice cap Edison. Way to cap off the evening.
  9. You know what they say..."Dirty minds think alike." Or is that great minds...I forget.
  10. Yep, I just saw that one on eBay. I'll be watching it to see how much it sells for.
  11. Here's one on eBay for sale: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-1950s-DRINK-COCA-COLA-Coke-HUGE-Embossed-Street-Auto-Service-Sign-Fishtail-/251677631904 BTW Red_red, why don't you post some items from yo...
  12. And you're really spreading the manure on thick with that last comment Dave.
  13. Before heading to our vacation trip in upstate NY, I contacted two reputable collectors; Bill Bateman and Randy Schaeffer, asking them about this soda jerk cap, to which they replied: "Yes, this is f...
  14. Meant to say "and" started to give them away.
  15. You know my views on these diamond labels. You may very well have an original. I just shy away from these because so many were reproduced. But for $15, it's a nice item to frame up. I once bought 6 of...
  16. You'll be one tired Michigander.
  17. I was being facetious about the one-of-a-kind or prototype comment.
  18. And yet page 553 shows the same patch design as from the 1950s. The state rests its case but does not concede to this erroneous assumption that this is an original cap. Furthermore, you are requir...
  19. Looks like a made up item with a 50s-60s Coke patch. Or...it could be an early Canadian cap. Don't Canadian signs have that yellow dot below the logo?
  20. Looks similar to the Vendo V-154-14 model. http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=532&Itemid=14 These aren't highly collected machines because of their size and square ...
  21. It's mine! I lost it. Thanks for finding it. Mail it to me at......
  22. Wow! I am definitely feelin' the love here. Thanks everyone.
  23. How do you have these attached to the wall Dave?
  24. "Well it is at least 15 years old"...said the seller who didn't know anything about this sign. Might be just 15 days old for all we know.
  25. Looks faked up to me. Embossed? Size? What does it say in the "tail" of the first C in Coca? Hey, that's a good one; "facked up." I'm gonna use that from now on.
  26. Joe's a good friend of mine. I'm actually designing his book, on Coca-Cola letterheads. He owns over 3,000 different letterheads from Coca-Cola bottling plants, that we're going to be archiving for fu...
  27. Nice. Did you buy this from JoeCoolFla? Yes, it is amazing how these early and very thin fragile napkins have survived. I have a friend in the printing business and he's dumbfounded on how early print...
  28. Ya Perry, you rock! (Why does Perry rock?)
  29. Never seen this version clock before but then again, I don't collect clocks. Don't even see it in Petretti's but didn't check his earlier editions.
  30. Yes, I think the 8-pack needs to have a Grand Poobah meeting to discuss the induction of other dedicated, passionate members who collect only vintage Coca-Cola memorabilia. No pillows, commemorative b...
  31. It sure is, isn't it nuts? Daddy is always there to help others. This sure beats collecting costume jewelry. :) Nice find Edisonfan. Hope you find out if it's the read thing. Maybe Blaine can assist...
  32. Thanks Chad, Dave and others that love it.
  33. Interesting. Can't wait to hear what you find out.
  34. Welcome to CW. I know a cocacolanut in Florida. Is it you? There's a few other "nuts" on CW.
  35. Yes, great item. Too bad it won't be hanging around the Coke Cave too long. And...we might just have to induct Edisonfan into the 8-pack club since we have a few slackers who rarely show up. Blaine...
  36. Yes, by all means, please re-categorize this stuff so we don't have to see it on here anymore. Advice: Don't spend money collecting this made-for-the-market collectibles junk, thinking it'll appreciat...

  38. This is great. I always make it a point to search out and research old existing Coca-Cola bottling plants whenever my wife and I travel by car. I found an old photo of the Sanford Florida bottling pla...
  39. Buy this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1977-COCA-COLA-CALENDAR-PAD-W-ORIGINAL-BOX-/261591329725
  40. IMO $200 for this is a steal. I think you owe someone an extra $300. Shame on you! :)
  41. Contact Steve at Soda Jerk Works: steve@sodajerkworks.com
  42. Not sure this can be categorized as VG to EX Dave. That's some major fading there. More like fair to good condition. I've seen mint ones selling for under $300. Anyway, it'll be a placeholder until yo...
  43. Uh...the 1921 tray. Gee, that wasn't so hard. BTW, I heard from a fellow Coca-Cola collector on this: "The Friendly Hand was indeed the precursor to The Red Barrel. It started in January 1921. Mo...
  44. Thanks. The Coca-Cola contour bottle was developed in 1915 and became standard by 1920. So your bottle was made (after) the contour bottle came out. I believe your bottle was a flavored water bottle, ...
  45. What does it say around the middle of the bottle? I just read something SODA.
  46. Thanks Scott. I make it a point to search out any items that I own, that are shown in their environment and displayed the way they were intended to be displayed. It makes for a great display too; show...
  47. I just added that last photo, showing how the bookmark arrived, still glued to a scrapbook page, along with other early (1890s) paper stuff. Those tiny portraits on the top left and bottom left say To...
  48. Thanks guys. Were you watching these items Edisonfan? I was bidding on the menu card too but got outbid. :(
  49. Flew mom....? Are you a pilot? Flew to Key West for lunch from where? On your private jet? Who flies a family to lunch? What does JP stand for? JP Morgan?
  50. The first thing I picked up was a stack of a dozen "Menu Girl" serving trays, all in mint condition. That was in 1969. I was helping my parents set up for our church field day and saw the stack in a c...
