  1. That's a very nice sign Mr. Bernie, super snag.
  2. Not hard to imagine you cruising down the road with a couple new old porcelain signs thrown in the bed! Great Ride Michael.
  3. has a great reference for this:
  4. Looks nice Bernie, well done!
  5. Hi thanks Trey, I know you like the big signs too.
  6. Yes Scott is correct. These 70's fantasy items are well known and easily recognized by collectors.
  7. Thanks Coke1234, yes I wish the good deals were more common. Some of the prices on signs these days, well I just keep on scrolling right. Perry, I'll take that moniker as a compliment!!! :0)
  8. Thanks Bernie!
  9. LOL Perry I try not to let spending too little bother me! ;0) Michael, Thank you, I know you appreciate the nice signs.
  10. Thank you Perry! Yes I wonder about the sign. It couldn't have hung outside very long, if at all. The print registration marks may indicate it's a press proof, first off a run. And it has the inve...
  11. Great lighted signage Perry!
  12. Wonderful historical correspondence! Lucky it found you to be saved.
  13. Gotta be a tough one to find Michael. Beautiful. Congrats!
  14. Here's another from that set:
  15. It's one of a coaster set made in the 1980's, not a tip tray.
  16. Nice to see you're still finding the great deals spriteboy, very nice trays.
  17. I felt the same way boyd, looked so good... but still not quite right. These "Bierman" versions still show up from time to time. Price tags still big too!
  18. That's the sign maker's production code. Allen-Morrison December 1958.
  19. Nice small Perry!
  20. Yes that's a good tip oktd, the trademark detail can definitely be a tip off. G99 - 6 years ago when I posted this seems quaint now. Many collectors won't even touch the porcelain signs now. It's...
  21. Hope my note made it through OK.
  22. hi jgn yes send me an e-mail at and I'll reply with the info and images.
  23. Thanks G99, I agree. I figured this was my one good shot at owning a salesman sample cooler so I took it. Like you, I've looked at a number of them before and felt squeamish. Got lucky. Keep up th...
  24. Thank you Trey, still enjoying it very much. Hope all is good with you.
  25. The guide lists as "scarce", which is defined as: A collector might encounter this item in the marketplace from once to a few times a year. Most commonly found at private sales, live auctions, or co...
  26. 1942, it read "Coke time" at the top.
  27. The circle R trademark detail is from 1990 or later, and that odd logo style was never used on old signs of any type, so this would be a contemporary reproduction or fantasy sign. It's a nice decorat...
  28. Sweet banks Perry!
  29. "Nice Rides" and looks like a lot of fun !
  31. No we're not supposed to. Factors impacting value are age, condition, size, rarity. It's hard to tell condition from the images. Bottom looks warped some, corners bent. But overall it's excellent....
  32. Listed in Petretti's 12th guide as 20"x36", rare. Has a good bit of value even with the edge/corner damage (nice sweet spot).
  33. Yes I agree with CK, too far gone to have much if any value. Buyer will have to love it for what it is.
  34. '38 would be right.
  35. Like hen's teeth Perry, super find!
  36. That corner looks very nice!
  37. Trademark detail dates it to 1990's or later, a nice decorative lamp for 30.
  38. Nice job Mani!
  39. Great sign 'rose!
  40. Difficult to say with certainty without knowing size and seeing close up. My guess is it's an old amateur restoration, especially if a large size 24"-36". The top of the cap for example has the colo...
  41. Super Sign Perry!
  42. Thanks Bernie, I'll keep my eyes peeled too and let you know if I see one. Hope you have a good weekend!
  43. The horizontals are referred to as channel cards and yours are from mid-1960's. Typically hung in diners, displayed in special frames, they were changed as different ad campaigns were rolled out or p...
  44. Seems to be a lot of info here:
  45. Thanks Perry, I remember you have one, definitely keepers both. oktreedude, agreed, a few spots left to fill (funny how new spots keep popping up), thank you for viewing!
  46. Thank you CK and I've enjoyed looking at your sign posts, you've got a great collection going on there. Love the signs!
  47. Thanks Perry. Even better, it was free!
  48. Always fascinated by your posts Scott. Not an old cabinet photo collector but easy to see how one could easily become interested. Great stuff, enjoy these posts.
  49. The 20 x 28 signs are the perfect size. I have 5 but this version has eluded me to this point. I wouldn't worry about nailing within the border at the corners to hang, won't hurt it.
  50. Don't imagine there are many out there. I agree, nice one to display and it looks great CK.
