    I just picked theses items up from an auction to add to my collection that is growing really fast. The plate is from 1931 manufactured by E.M. Knowles. The bottle shaped door is from the 1950's. On the back of the door pull it says Milton Sturv&Co Chicago. The picnic cooler is from 1954 made by the St. Thomas Metal Sign company from Canada. The sign is a fiber optic color changing sign made by Styleline. Its not an old sign but is really cool how it changes from white to red.

      The plate looks nice. I recently saw a couple in similar shape sell for $235 & $260 each on eBay.

      I've had good success flipping purchases in part by finding listings where similar items have sold well, then using those titles and descriptions in my own listing. So much of achieving good return is finding the audience, and one can maximize selling potential by using the right search key words in the title and description. Just a little pointer, not saying you're looking to sell, but if you choose to, a little advice.

      Nice snag y3K!

      Thanks for the great pointer Daddy_Nobucks!!! I think I'm going to hold on to it for a little while. When I do sell the plate it will be a good return on what i spent on it. I will take any pointers/advice I can get on sell and collecting Coca Cola items. It helps me out a lot seeing I'm new to collecting. Thanks again!!!
