    Well, there are lots and lots of seriously informed Coca-Cola collectors on Collectors Weekly, but to my eye it looks very similar to the Vendo V-83, made between 1946 and 1955, which you can see at this URL:
    Your version has a white top and a few other minor variations, but they look close, right?

    By the way, is a great site, so perhaps an email to Jim Beschen, who is listed on the contact page as the site's owner, would get you your answer.

    Good luck!
