I found this sign at a local antique mall, the guy's booth had some advertising signs, and this one caught my eye, it was hanging right by a shelf. My heart raced, at first site, I thought it was real. Then I looked at the price tag, $38 bucks. I thought from the price, it may be a reproduction, but from the rust, the old paint enamel, and the the fact it was made from steel and not aluminum (like current repro signs) I thought even if it wasn't real, I thought it was pretty realistic looking and would look good over my coke trays. Usually, a have a pretty kean eye for antiques, and this jumped out to me. But thanks to ray, I now know this is real, I more then 10X my money. It is my new favorite sign in my small sign collection, (coke sign, coke thermometer, red jacket well sign) This encourages me to take risk and buy more coke signs! The funny thing is, the guy had more coke and other advertising signs with price tags with high dollars. I wonder why he had this one at just 38 dollars if he possibly knew what he had.
