    Had to go deep, back-back-back to the warning track!, to acquire this scarce celluloid sign from the 1940's. Purchased as a result of... cringe... a bid auction for right around 3/4 book value. The sign exhibits some deterioration of gold foil edge, likely from exposure to sunlight. I referenced the earlycoke.com Price Guide to find the right bid point, to good effect (I highly recommend it). This beauty joins three other versions hanging vertically along a narrow exposure of wall next to the Coke Cave wet bar. This view of my collection is not often seen in other pictures, as much of the action occurs on the opposite wall.

    I do enjoy seeing other member's pieces and hearing about their diverse experiences, as well as sharing my love of collecting Coca-Cola signs and ad pieces. Thanks everyone for participating in a great website, Collectors Weekly.

    Hope you all have a nice weekend.

    Dave

      Great find Dave! My truck has been pullin me away from the Coke world lately but this celluloid sign is a heck of a find indeed.

      I agree with you about earlycoke.com, well worth the price of admission! And the pictures and colors are amazing to look at.

      Thanks Perry! That's some sweet ride of yours. And thanks for the kind words. I know how you feel about prices of these little signs, so very gracious of you to comment. I hate to play the full retail auction price game. But I keep it to a minimum and pick my spots.

      Right on Dave glad you found another great addition! Very cool to see 4 excellent condition celluloid signs I think you maybe only have two or three more to find and than you own them all!

      Thanks Trev! Those other ones are a lit-tle pricey! Short of an Act of God, this display element is complete. Hey, thanks for stopping by and leaving the encouraging words, it's appreciated. Looking forward to your next post.

      Thanks Ray. I saw a Japanese version go for over 4 last week. I had to stray from my BIN strategy to get this one and yes I paid a premium. I hope to find other versions at a reasonable price, but I'm not holding my breath. Thanks again for stopping by.
