  1. Thanks Chad, Dave and others that love it.
  2. Interesting. Can't wait to hear what you find out.
  3. Welcome to CW. I know a cocacolanut in Florida. Is it you? There's a few other "nuts" on CW.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

  7. 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...
  8. Buy this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1977-COCA-COLA-CALENDAR-PAD-W-ORIGINAL-BOX-/261591329725
  9. IMO $200 for this is a steal. I think you owe someone an extra $300. Shame on you! :)
  10. Contact Steve at Soda Jerk Works: steve@sodajerkworks.com
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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, ...
  14. What does it say around the middle of the bottle? I just read something SODA.
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Thanks guys. Were you watching these items Edisonfan? I was bidding on the menu card too but got outbid. :(
  18. 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?
  19. 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...
  20. Actually antique rose, I have those too. I made a few of them when I melted down the Coke bottles that I sunk in the concrete. Used as spoon rests. During parties I actually bring out my 1930s Coca-Co...
  21. Well...not exactly early on in my collecting since I started collecting back in the early 1980s. I sold because of financial necessity. Divorced in 1994, got custody of our two boys and owned a house ...
  22. Thanks for all the loves....
  23. Don't throw your money away on apartment rent. Think about buying a small house like this: http://www.point2homes.com/CA/Home-For-Sale/ON/Haldimand-County/334-Rattlesnake-Road/39002317.html Sometimes...
  24. Nice. I have an original rusty one sitting outside hanging on my Bamboo Lounge bar. Always thought these arrow signs were one of the most rarest and difficult to find...in any condition.
  25. Well it's about time your parents kicked you out, freeloader. What are you, 30 years old now? :) Don't sell a thing. Store stuff under your bed, behind furniture and display some items. Then rotate yo...
  26. It's pouring raining right now. Does that count as a water park? Plus we have a bird bath and a misting fan. And when the ice melts in the beer tubs....I'm just saying.
  27. Here's the same design but as a pendant. You might want to contact the seller to see if he/she has more information.. I don't think it's old. Maybe a promotional, incentive piece offered to Coca-Cola ...
  28. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-NOS-1960-039-s-Coca-Cola-Thermometer-Original-amp-Authentic-Plastic-Sign-/131280121194 I'm thinking...if this was truly a 1960s NOS item, it would be made out of tin...
  29. I haven't seen this version before. Is it from the 60s or a new item?
  30. Thanks Kid and other Coke lovers. A few notables have toured the Coke patio, including one "8-pack" member and John Root, son of the late Chapman Root of the Root Glass Company (Root Coke bottle). And...
  31. Nice find but unfortunately, nothing of value. Many unopened bottles from the 70s and 80s are still found and that plastic carton is valued at around $10. Not that you asked. :)
  32. Thanks Mani. We have more than our share of mosquitoes too but a few hours before a party, I bug fog the entire area. Then I bring out Citronella tiki torches as well as Citronella candle buckets, pla...
  33. Thanks blunder. It was fun designing it and thinking of other ways to incorporate Coca-Cola items into the design. Coke bottle wind chimes weren't my idea. I actually bought them at a flea market year...
  34. Always a great item to display. I have 3 or 4 different versions of these and amazingly they're all in great condition.
  35. Thanks for the loves CEBTD.
  36. This was a generic poster distributed to local high schools and colleges by the local Coca-Cola Bottling plant. Schools would imprint the sports schedule of games on the blank areas. These were produc...
  37. I'm thinking that program ad was from Boston and isn't the date on the very top of both pages? That N-Drip, by fragile, do you mean brittle paper that will fall apart? Because even though these wer...
  38. BTW, I buy from this company on eBay. They have thick clear plastic top loaders in over 20 different sizes: http://www.ebay.com/itm/50-8x10-ULTRA-CBG-PRO-RIGID-TOPLOADERS-PHOTO-HOLDER-SLEEVES-/361038...
  39. 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"...
  40. 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...
  41. "...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?
  42. 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...
  43. 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...
  44. 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?
  45. 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 ...
  46. 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...
  47. 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...
  48. 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.
  49. 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...
  50. Thanks for the high praise Phil!
