Nice small dispenser that's a good fit for The Coke Cave wet bar. This is a tombstone model by maker Cornelius. BIN for 150% book value. I hate overpaying but once in awhile I do it anyway. I had considered an outboard style dispenser, but just not enough room on the mini bar.

The case and emblems are in excellent condition but the taps are replacements, as is the drip tray cover. It came with extra hardware and handles, so I changed out the attachments to bakelite, including my 40's handle - front and center.

I'll have to work on finding the correct pieces to bring it back to original. It's a bit of an expensive Frankenstein right now. But I like how it looks, and the dispenser sits well in that little space.

    A thing is worth what you'll pay for it. I think it looks awesome!

    Looks great in the wet bar. I like what you've done already with replacing the taps and overall condition. The only issue I have is it appears to be dispensing black beads looking at the glass on the side. :)

    I've taken your advice and have been checking the BIN and set up some filters on eBay. Haven't hit the jackpot yet like your tradecard but still searching.

    Thanks everybody. Ray, I'm always up front with the boss. Sean and upstate, you're exactly right. Part of collecting is stepping up once in awhile. I've been looking for something to put there for a long time and a tombstone dispenser is exactly what I had in mind. I've been on the right side of good deals enough times to be comfortable giving back a little. Chad, My eleven year old boy asked me if I was going to hook it up to a tank of Coca-Cola. I told him "Display Only"! :0)

    NICE!!! We never know what you'll throw at us, from maps to hats and trade cards to thermo's....always on the edge of our seats!! Who cares what it costs, lol. I'm Coke collecting vicariously through you guys for a little bit, so keep it up!

    Thanks Tom. Great to hear from you. Hey, I understand our pal from last year, Polar Vortex, will be visiting us again soon. Let's hope not so long this year! Looking forward to seeing you post something cool soon. I always enjoy looking at and reading about your stuff. Take care.
