    Saw this at a antique store and didn’t buy it. I’ve seen the exact sign made by Roberson co. Did two companies that make this exact sign ? The condition was near mint and something didn’t seem right about it. I know there has been some reproductions made out there. The last picture shows the M C A. Name from another coke sign but the M is different from the sign I was looking at. Asking $750 and that’s very high for a sign from the 60’s. The Roberson sign has the trade mark in white also . What do you all think ?

      Hi Gulf,

      The sign you posted is a reproduction. The last picture you posted is from the authentic version. Unfortunately back in the day somebody absolutely nailed faking this sign, many collectors have been fooled over the years. The dead giveaway is the lack of white present on the outside edges of the sign. Also, if you are holding the sign you will notice it is a lot heavier than an original. Hope that helps.

      Thanks,
      David

      Good eye and good sense not to buy until researched.
