  1. great find
  2. Riply206, did you wrote a letter directly to Ghirardelli ? there is an address on the bottom of the cup, the cup is not old and they could perhaps solve you problem
  3. I tried plain vinegar but it didn't work, what is bizarre is that when the sign is wet it's green and nice but when it's dry the white stains came back
  4. Thanks, what is funny is that my dad collects miniatures cars for almost 40 years ( mostly 1:18 ) and I'm now also starting collecting toys but older ones, with all the brand existing I try to buy the...
  5. Thanks, I'm not sure about the headlights, there are some electrical cables under the front axles but can't find how to reach it, Vebe had produced some amazing toys and I'm really happy to get my han...
  6. thanks, many toys were inspired by american cars and mostly the buick like murray did with it's pedal car, schuco also used this design that was quite a car
  7. Thanks all for the comments and love
  8. nice radio, it's from 1939 listed here http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/stewart_wa_senior_varsity.html, there is also another model with dionne quints decals on it http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/stewart_wa_...
  9. nice, did you put it on your wall ? if so please add a picture of this wonderful sign next to your collection
  10. Thanks, for me schuco was one of the best toy maker and they produced a ton of great quality toys that still works today
  11. put them on your wall for you collection ! as you come here to show us item from your collection
  12. Nice one that's a Bandai ( B for bandai, C for Company ) japanese toy but I can't help you on the model of the car
  13. great signs, they all look in great condition, nice find
  14. nice sign, it's related to tydol and veedol oil, did you already hanged it on your wall ? I'd love to see it well displayed at your home
  15. Thanks Phil for the comment, do you think it could be a soviet rocket, I'm not sure but could have been from the 1960's or earlier ?
  16. you erase my comment ? why ? this is a recent item not old
  17. for exemple a shelf from hobby lobby shop filled with tonnage of fantasy items : http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/42/af/6a/42af6abd81530ba8a0cf0dafa87b5563.jpg
  18. recent made piece, crudly made not like it was back in the day, you can be sure that if it was old it would have been better made, straight line, good accuracy, now those kind of decorative pieces are...
  19. for german signs I would go with ebay germany, there are not much other websites in Germany for finding good german signs, check ebay.de and search for "blechschild", "coca cola blechschild", "coca co...
  20. Thanks for your comment, this particuliar sign is quite rare even in Germany, those don't come often for sale, I found mine at the coca cola collector show in Essen in Germany, if you go there it's on...
  21. really nice sign
  22. Thanks, I got it pretty cheap, 40 € if I remember and it's on my wall since I bought it, I've just added a picture of this clock on my wall along my other items, Rc Cola is rare but finding an origina...
  23. great find for a great price, far better than buying new coke glasses
  24. it's funny to see 2 different world of coca cola collectors, those who are looking for original advertising pieces from 1890 to 1960 which are highly collectables, rare and sough after collectors and ...
  25. yep only sentimental value, nothing else
  26. yep reproduction, worth nothing.
  27. it's just a coca cola poster that has been glued on a wood box, if the poster is original it's missing all the bottom and top
  28. you can't restore it, the frame can be repainted bu the signs are made of tin and impossible to restore, if you don't like the item that way, wait to find one in pristine condition
  29. ouch, sorry but it's a recent poorly made fantasy item, there was never an original of this thing and was produced by someone to deceive, to age or value at all for this piece, doesn't worth keeping it
  30. why restoring ? if you restore it, you will loose all it's history and the original coca cola artwork
  31. nice find
  32. Welcome to CW, you should keep them and show us the rest of your collection, they would be georgous on your wall
  33. wow great find, they are rare and here in Belgium you can't find them, most of them are in collection or still used in carnivals ride, they are impossible to get, congrats on them as they are outstand...
  34. Thanks, yes it has been well take care as there is almost nothing wrong with it and the paint is georgous
  35. it's just a recent reproduction, you can find them in souvenir shop for 15 tot 18 $ not more
  36. Thanks, great story, I love knowing more about the past and how things were used in those days,laurens cigarettes used this specific graphics during 1925- 1930's era and not many items were produced, ...
  37. nice one, I have a question about this particular model, on this model the lid is basic metal with the label on it, mine has a red lid with coca cola logo painted on it, it was used in Belgium, was it...
  38. wow that's huge, I never seen one that big before, really nice item, congrats
  39. Thanks Ray for the pictures, I love seeing old pics of this time, it show well how signs were displayed and used at time
  40. bobbywiggins, please read the rules of CW, this website is for Collectors like the name said
  41. as you erase my comments and you came here only to know the value, you can easily get 600 to 800 $ out of it
  42. myersshon, it is for sure a FANTASY item if you be sure buy the Allan Petretti's Coca-Cola Collectibles Price Guide 12th edition
  43. the driver is there but hard to see on pictures with the body on, here is a picture of it before I reassemble it : http://s30.postimg.org/mer3tmopt/image.jpg
  44. Thanks for the comments and love, when I see a restored sign I'm always asking how much of this sign is still original as it was redone now, is it still an original piece or a recent one as it was res...
  45. great toys, I see there is another "Tim the tool man"'s fan here, like he said Real men don't need instructions
  46. splendid pedal car, you don't need to know it's value as it's a great gift from your grand father and a good way to remember him, forget the value, think about this great heritage
  47. Thanks Daddy_Nobucks for the comment and loves, the bottle is what catch my eyes first, it's the first sign of this kind I have seen with the bottle intact and I love it
  48. Thanks for the love and comment
