  1. And Kerry is by no means the junkman on CW. (Watch) his posts. He's ready to lend a helping (hand) every (minute) or (second). Like (clockwork), Kerry knows his stuff. Use it for (face) value. He's be...
  2. I meant to say "condition ISN'T always everything..."
  3. I'm was joking of course, but it sounded good, huh?
  4. Heed Daddy's advice and don't jump at the first sign of a Coke item even though you are a newbie and got bit by the Coke Collecting Bug. There's a lot of items out there in better condition. Condition...
  5. Early sign manufacturers, knowing they couldn't "sign" there art work when they finished creating it, often would embed their thumb or fingerprint into the screen printing prior to drying, as their in...
  6. You might find "Ed" on a bottle or can. :)
  7. Welcome to CW. A new Coca-Cola collector; just what we need. Really. Too many of us old timers dying off. My advice (not that you asked): Depending on what you plan on collecting; the older items...
  8. Isn't there a separate section for "P" items? :)
  9. I think that's a good thing; to get these reproduced so collectors who are restoring machines can add one to their cooler. Vending machine restore websites sell everything else reproduced, including d...
  10. Nice one. Can you add a pic of the entire stocking label so we can read it?
  11. You're welcome. And post some of your rare collectibles.
  12. Part of a paddle from a ceiling fan. Another new item. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Coca-Cola-Three-Speed-Reversible-Downrod-44-Ceiling-Fan-w-Light-S0314-NEW-/171373903064 Post some of your "rare" coll...
  13. Who's "they?" The person who sold it to you? It's from the 1900s, 1980s or 90s. A fantasy mirror made as a decorative piece. No serious value. Zero value to a serious Coca-Cola collector. If you paid ...
  14. "This completes my Coca-Cola cooler collection." Whadaya mean this completes your Coca-Cola Cooler collection? There's plenty more versions out there Dave. You're just getting started.
  15. I just did a quick google search, typing in Coca-Cola bench. 4 photos of your bench popped up. This was produced in the 1990s, which would fall into the 20 -35 year range. And that pitting was inten...
  16. It's worth what someone is willing to pay for it or what you paid for it.
  17. Yes, it came from a wooden and cast iron Coca-Cola park bench. Produced 10-20 years ago. No significant value. You could buy the entire bench for under $100.
  18. The debate of restoring vs not restoring: IMO, restoring this removes all history behind it. This gets sandblasted to remove the old paint and what you are left with is a brand new shiny red metal box...
  19. We have two indoor cats and that doesn't even help. I did have a NO BUGS ALLOWED sign but the bugs ate the NO and now it says BUGS ALLOWED. They're clever those bugs.
  20. Not a repro. Repro implies there is an original. This is a FANTASY item. No originals exist. Made in the 1970s or 80s as a decorative piece. Google "Coca-Cola mirror" and you'll find all kinds of thes...
  21. Check out: http://www.fun-tronicsllc.com http://www.vintagevending.com/dole-deluxe-coca-cola-soda-fountain-dispenser http://www.sodamuseum.com/Coke/parts.html http://soda-machines.com/ If they...
  22. Funny Perry. If I could afford one (and find one), I'd by an old Coca-Cola truck. A buddy of mine who lives in Orlando actually bought an old 1940s Coke truck and plans on restoring it.
  23. I remember seeing similar clocks selling at the recent Schmidt Coca-Cola Museum auctions. Google 1903 COCA-COLA HILDA CLARK CELLULOID CLOCK and 1906 Coca-Cola Juanita celluloid clock. Both are similar...
  24. This should be in my collection. It would've been had I gotten to it a bit earlier than you. Me always keeps an eye out for Hi-Fi items for you. I have a Hi-Fi record. Got one too? You should bring...
  25. Not sure why you are referencing this ebay listing (VINTAGE-KNAPP-MONARCH...) as it's not a Sprite Boy cooler. And yes, The Coca-Cola Company (of New York) briefly owned IGLOO coolers in 1971, when th...
  26. It looks like someone added a Sprite Boy decal to a generic picnic cooler. Cooler is old, just not produced by The Coca-Cola Company.
  27. Thanks for the speechless comments and the loves.
  28. Ya, I'm with you on this as far as removing the poor restoration job. I don't believe in restoring much of anything unless it's a very rare calendar that just needs some minor paper conserving. Or Tre...
  29. Here's a great website devoted to Coca-Cola playing cards. http://ccplayingcards.com/cards/1950sandlater
  30. Interesting. Never seen one of these "book" wrapped playing card sets.
  31. Inside pages aren't yellowed with age. They're printed on original newsprint paper of that era.
  32. This is just a question as I don't collect bottles nor am I an expert by any means, but aren't these literally a dime a dozen? I mean, didn't Coca-Cola produce millions of these and millions are still...
  33. Thanks Bill. Won't be attending the convention (unfortunately). Didn't get a room in the main hotel in time and too late now to request vacation time. It's gonna be a huge convention and I'll regret m...
  34. Thanks Bernie. It's been 3 days already and I haven't pissed anyone off yet. That's a record for me. :) And Blaine. Nice to see you are still able to type since that finger accident. So I was right...
  35. Ya, it's completely different. Still appears to be an older crate though.
  36. Thanks kerry. Ya, when I saw it listed on ebay, I knew I wanted it. It initially shot up to $1500, then went back down to $175. I emailed the seller asking what the dealeo was. He said some foreig...
  37. Thanks antiquerose. Ya, definitely from the 1920s...maybe even older. Post a few pics of your crate. Never thought of it that way Dave. I might have to expand my collection (paper, cardboard, wood....
  38. Thanks Tommy. Ya, even though I mainly collect vintage Coca-Cola paper items now, I still love the crates, especially the older ones that held bottles and now hold a lot of history. I'm back and wi...
