    I'm just trying to get some information on this sign. It measures 60 inches by 24 inches. It's metal and has a wooden frame. There are no markings on the back. I found it in a basement of a build I purchased. Just wondering if it's of any value.

      These large Coca-Cola signs were typically displayed with deco framing and other sign elements on store fronts or as road side ads late 30's through early 40's. If you send me a note at daveq@wowway.com, I'll send you back images from a period salesman book. Here's one similar to yours, better condition and a little smaller, that sold recently on eBay.

      Thank you Fifties50s,,, I havent found a place in my house for it. I'm not a collector but the building I bought where I found the sign, I am turning into a shop to start a business in. So maybe it will be nice to display it there. :)

      I will send you a note Daddy_Nobucks. I appreciate the info. I was getting a bit concerned that it was not an original. I had someone tell me that it was cut from a coca cola cooler and framed and that if it was original it would have pre drilled holes in the corners of the frame. Heck,,, they may be right. I know nothing about it. Either way,,,,, it has given me some excitement even thinking I found something interesting in an old dirty basement.

      Just out of curiosity,,, what does the A.A.W-6-39-H in the bottom corner mean? From what I've found online the 6-39 is the date but I'm clueless to the rest.

      It's an original, not cut down. A.A.W. is the maker, American Art Works out of Coshocton, Ohio.

      Very similar to a sign I posted a couple of years ago. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/37860-1940s-drug-store-style-coca-cola-sign?in=user

      It is very similar jameyrd. Thank you for sharing your pic. Mine does not have the date on the back like yours does though.....but still very similar.
