    CokeKid-04
    (185 items)

    Pic-1 is, what I believe to be, an original cardboard advertising piece from the 40's. I got it at an auction for $10. It came with a few other smalls which I will post in the future. Has a little tape damage on the right and the corners are pretty good, but the graphics are sharp and clear. I had to say "Yes" to having it framed. I did leave the edges exposed.
    Pic-2 is a simple syrup jug crate that I placed two plastic money banks in. They fit perfectly and look like they belong. I did have a bank bottle filled with pennies at one time. That I believe was the original intent for the banks. (Coca Cola is brown............pennies are brown............)
    Pic-3 is a sample piece I got around 15 years ago from a Wilsonart laminate rep I dealt with. She knew I collected Coca Cola stuff and passed it on to me. Has a little 3D thing going. I had to have it laminated to a board because the plastic laminate will go brittle a break.
    Pic-4 is a collage of items I got when I visited Young Brothers Pharmacy just outside Atlanta. Went there to see the first wall painted Coke sign. There's a photo of me at the wall sign below. The frame is from IKEA, and the background is from pages out of the investors report book. My ticket from my visit to the World Of Coca-Cola in 1996, business card and info card from the pharmacy are what's framed.

      Sweet deal on the poster! Looks great.

      Thanks DN. It seemed like forever when the auctioneer was calling out for $15. I had a feeling nobody else knew what it was.
      Thanks 'blunder / EJW / racer / geo / hick' for the loves.

      What does the cardboard sign measure CokeKid?
    4. CokeKid-04 CokeKid-04, 7 years ago
      11" high x 27" wide.
    5. CokeKid-04 CokeKid-04, 7 years ago
      Confirmed the date to be 1946. Has the copyright verbiage with year and CC-3-46.
    6. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 7 years ago
      That seems small for an authentic insert. Petretti's lists it as 20" x 36". I'm not sure they made these in more than one size...

      I know what you mean. I read that, but the back is the right colour (white), and the markings are there, but the size can't be found. If authentic? great deal for me. If not authentic? Money well spent for a piece I like. Maybe it's Canadian, OR so rare it's worth millions! LOL.
      Your feedback is always appreciated DN.

      I hear ya. Maybe one of the experts will know for sure.

      Definitely a reproduction piece but looks nice on your wall.
    10. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 7 years ago
      Petretti's 11th notes "Man of the signs show were offered in two different sizes" on the page showing your sign. So that's good!
    11. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 7 years ago
      I checked with TGBWC and he thinks it's probably The Real Thing. I found a couple auction results too for this size. Looks like you scored CK.

      Thank you so much DN for the confirmation and taking some time out of your schedule to go deep with your resources. Very much appreciated!

      Got a copy of Petretti's price guide 10th edition.
      Found the YES cardboard sign on page 163...... I got very lucky on this one.
      Thanks again!
