  5. Just found the information, this toy train was made in Canada by Nerlich and Company in 1938, I've added a copy of their catalog
  6. Thanks, when I saw the greasy dirty interior yesterday, I knew it had potential, I used a lot of Q-tip to clean it but it was worth it

  8. great poster really difficult to find, even if I live near germany, I never seen one in person by the way, do you go this year at the coca cola show in Essen ? this year I won't go I'll try to be a...
  9. are you sure it's a pedal car, the way it's built it looks more like a Fair ride
  10. nice one, what is great with the logo is that you can date this train from 1925 to 1934 ( bing was dissolved in 1934 after bought by Karl Bub ) you can measure the width between the wheels to know the...
  11. thanks, I couldn't let this one in the flea market as I already had a similar one from a french brand "ML", it's quite interesting to see how the french model was inspired by the german ones : http:/...
  12. Thanks, I realy love the bi-tone of this turntable, it reminds me the colors of the 1950's car like the pontiac starchief : http://www.history-of-cars.com/images/pontiac/pontiac55starchief1.jpg

  16. thanks for love and comments
  17. you don't need to know what is worth if you love it, just keep it for yourself, find a good place to display it and enjoy it
  18. The clock itself was made by Glo-Dial in 1930 but they never made Harley davidson clock, so what you have is and old clock from 1930's with a new glass face of harley davidson
  19. erasing comments won't make you nicer, I understand you are such a great collector and love your item so much you' ll never sell them
  20. oh what you have is a coca cola cooler that was cut in half, yours is missing all the bottom part....
  21. nice sign, this brand has also produced other signs such a flange and a cutout, you can see them here : https://www.liveauctioneers.com/search?q=satanet&by_date=2015-04-23T15:37:23.338Z&sort=relevance...
  22. it looks likey a Hubley toy
  23. nice I could be wrong but with the font used on the cap I would say 1910-1920
  24. Great I have the same machine but in white, it's from mid-sixties, those are great to use, mine uses german coins but it's still workin great
  25. hey great I had the exact same model a few years ago, the quality of the image was outstanding but the problem was the size and the weight of the disc, plus the player was really noisy, I remember wat...
  26. I had the same visual on a cushion in 1994, worth nothing
  27. nice the red sinclair is a pretty unusual ones and in great condition, I love it
  28. yours is the Pink Princess Tricycle and you can still buy it today http://www.airflowcollect.com/#!pink-princess-trike/ccu1
  29. nice, it's great to see a sign being completed like that, I love it
  30. ok, could you light up on this point why is there a green sticker on the bottom of the mirror ????
  31. you posted here to have answers by experts or did you came here by knowing for sure it's an original, if you don't want to hear that's a recent fantasy item don't ask the advice of coca cola expert ...
  32. to CHARLESJR if you don't trust Daddy_Nobucks,( which is a coca cola expert I trust ) you just have to buy the allan petretti coca cola price guide, you'll have your answers written black on white on ...
  33. fake fantasy sign from 1990's no interest for real collectors
  34. I can give you the exact date for this as it was made in 1998 for the football world cup in France
  35. by the way if your are looking to build a new bracket for this sign I have a ford sign with the same shape, here is how they designed the bracket in the 1950's : http://www.collectorsweekly.com/storie...
  36. nice signs
  37. great sign, I love it
  38. @ racer4four, I went to the toy museum on saturday, and took some pictures, you can see them on my twitter page here : https://twitter.com/jmvcom4/media
  39. @birdjt it's worth what you see on the link from Daddy_Nobucks, "was priced at $176 retail in mail order catalogs." I love reading this "No old shade like this was ever made. This is an entirely ne...
  40. wow I wonder who could buy that, it's far beyond from restoration, it's a total reconstruction, is there any part on this that is not rusted ?
  41. If you are sure it's an old original lamp, buy the book from Allan Petretti's Coca-Cola Collectibles Price Guide, I'm pretty sure youll find your answer in that book ( and all the knowledgeable people...
  42. very nice, it's the holy grail of bakelite radio, I would leave it just like that, it's fantastic
  43. Just a little advice if you want to find only original old antique items stay away from item produced in wood or cast iron, at 99% they are fake fantasy recent items original wood toys had a decal ...
  44. brand new item once again, it's just a decorator piece that was mass produced in india or pakistan... Think about that if that was old it would be better made than that
  45. sure I'll try to go on sunday but here are some picture of the museum I found online : https://aline2318.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/musc3a9e-du-jouet-04.jpg https://aline2318.files.wordpress.c...

  49. this pepsi logo is fairly new around 2000-2005
  50. that's just a well know scam, somebody switch the cap or the label and call it rare item, that's just a bottle with wrong cap on it, the cap can be easily replace with a pepsi one
