I collect old, authentic Coca-Cola signs and ad pieces. I love prowling eBay and pulling the trigger on a sweet BIN deal. Collectors Weekly is without a doubt the I collect old, authentic Coca-Cola signs and ad pieces. I love prowling eBay and pulling the trigger on a sweet BIN deal. Collectors Weekly is without a doubt the best site of its kind. So I hang out here, watch Pickers and The Roadshow, to enhance my collecting experience.

  1. Thank you Manikin! Wish I had more time to collect and research. Always good to hear from old friends like yourself, Bernie, bb2, Trey... thanks too AO and OC.
  2. Nice score. The green tint face makes it extra special.
  3. Great sign Michael. Highly desirable, incredible condition. And you found the perfect spot for it. Congrats!
  4. An early 1900’s plaster 26” tall statue of a young boy, advertisement for “Allen’s Cherry Tame” soda. If you look above the girl near center, it's there.
  5. Right on all counts I believe, and you have a good eye Ms.CS! That "hidden" Coke sign is not easy to see.
  6. I have a spot for it Michael, no problem! ;0) What a beauty!!!
  7. Dine-in Only, BB2! Nice to hear from you, hope all is well on the island.
  8. Hi Manikin, yes I've wondered about that too... "Meals At All Hours". I guess that means it was a 24/7 operation. Wish I could go back for a bowl of stew and biscuit LOL We're doing fine here i...
  9. I've never seen an original in anyone's collection. There are a lot of collectors who display this repro, it's a great sign, high quality. It's unique in that respect. Appreciate it for what it is....
  10. pickrknows is correct, this is a 1970's reproduction. Dozens of these in mint condition have been in the market, they usually sell in the 150-200 range. One collector who was had these in bulk recen...
  11. You'll find a place Michael! LOL Fantastic sign, WOW!!!
  12. Great can and paper Michael. The pickin's may be slim, but always nice to find the good old stuff!
  13. The tray is printed with the slogan Drive In For Coke.
  14. Nice find. 1959 "drive-in" serving tray.
  15. Egads, the age-old MCA Sign Co. coding mystery. Some seem straightforward. Most... not so much. Your friend's sign looks to have extra! Let me know if the secret decoder ring turns up. No clue.
  16. Thank you Bernie, always good to hear from you!
  17. Nice. Looks to be a Westinghouse or Cavalier Standard Electric cooler, circa 1940. The device is the cooling element, which kept the water cold. Links below are to a helpful identification resource...
  18. Thank you TallCakes. I know a little about Coca-Cola memorabilia but very little about glass. I appreciate it!
  19. Your button looks right to me. 1950's. The hand holding bottle is a decal on tin disc, just as it should be. Many different decals were sold for application to blank buttons (typically attached abo...
  20. Nice. Looks to be a Standard model cooler, 1940's by maker Westinghouse or Cavalier. It's been repainted and the cap catcher is a replacement. Here's a helpful resource put together by CW's toolboxt...
  21. Looks good, nice sign.

  24. http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=661&Itemid=14
  25. 1990's or so, game set box, held checkers/board, etc. Here's one similar. https://bid.auctionbymayo.com/lot-details/index/catalog/17103/lot/2358895
  26. Nice. Looks to be a Master Electric, 1940's by maker Westinghouse or Cavalier. Here's a helpful resource put together by CW's toolboxted. https://sites.google.com/site/idcocacolachestmachines1934...
  27. Mani nailed it. Many variations of these "fantasy" mirrors were produced in the 70's and 80's, around the time of the American bi-centennial (1976) and 100th anniversary of Coca-Cola (1986), during w...
  28. 1990's or later, Coca-Cola licensed clothing line. Manufactured for retail sale.
  29. 2 to 2-1/2 would be fair.
  30. The label on the lid indicates the contents were to be released in 1961, so I'd say it's 1960, vintage which fits with the fishtail logo use (late 50's early 60's).
  31. Congrats CK, that's a beauty. Very difficult to acquire the white button Coke signs, this one is a real winner!
  32. Yes hard to find, not sure I've seen one exactly like it before. Safe to say "very scarce". Condition obviously hurts value considerably, but it's still a great find. Thanks for sharing.
  33. Looks to be a c. 1940 Master ice cooler, by maker Westinghouse or Cavalier. Maybe original paint with that trademark showing on the logo, that detail is typically lost when refurbished. There may be...
  34. Hats off to you Bernie, your caps are fantastic!
  35. Nice one. Not often seen with the first design can sign, which dates it to early 1960's. Similar to this one for bottles: http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=653&It...
  36. Merry Christmas Michael! Your collection looks better than ever.
  37. Merry Christmas bb2! Looking good.
  38. Incredible. Super work Bernie!
  39. Many times the print on old crates is faded from age, unfortunately it looks like yours has what can best be described as an amateur restoration. The logo and lettering are somewhat uneven and slopp...
  40. Looks super Bernie, well done.
  41. Looks to be a 1940's standard ice cooler. Here's a resource that's helpful in identifying the old Coca-Cola coolers. https://sites.google.com/site/idcocacolachestmachines193459/home
  42. Beautiful sign Bern, not sure I've seen one before. Your game room looks incredible!
  43. Nice. 1990's.
  44. Very nice. Looks to be a late 40's-50's ice cooler by maker Westinghouse or Cavalier. Many times there is a raised production code on the inside liner, which may help you identify. Here is a good r...
  45. Beautiful display, looks fabulous!
  46. Great sign Trevor. I'd leave as is. You're right, these are extremely hard to find and fetch good prices. Congrats!
  47. Great display grouping Bern... keep on truckin'!
  48. I don't think I've ever seen a long-nose version before, nice one Bernie! Wonderful condition too. Congrats!
  49. Hi mrchall, nope, nobody had anything to say about this piece. I think I find it more interesting than others, because of the family connection.
  50. 1970's nostalgia item based on the 1910 Coca-Cola girl. Image looks to be a copy of a framed 1910 postcard.
