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. I am a member in poor standing of the exclusive-defunct 8-Pack Club, along with TGBWC, earlycoke, Signaholic, pickrknows, tommy1002, cocacolakid97, and coke.trevor.cola. My collecting motto is: Good Times, Great Finds! daveq@wowway.com (Read more)

  1. Congrats... Wow!
  2. The porch looks fabulous Michael, and the sign really makes it. Another sweet one!
  3. Fantastic Find EJW!
  4. Super signage!
  5. Yes I agree with Scott, old clock with replacement dial. No trademark detail visible, some of the newer dials have a circle R registered symbol below the logo, which is a giveaway. It's a nice decor...
  6. What a beauty!
  7. Nice ones! Both are from 1940's sets. "Work Refreshed" honored main disciplines, Education, Agriculture, Science, Transportation, Industry, Communication. The other is one of 9 Sports hangers, Golf...
  8. That's a nice one! I agree, looks incredible as is.
  9. Nice one, condition looks super purvis.
  10. This would be great material for the tourism guide. Certainly makes me want to visit!
  11. Super old crate, I like them too and this is an especially nice one.
  12. Thanks Mani, it's nice to find something different. I like the art on this one, including the great bowling scene. bb2, I'll keep my eye out for that one!!! ;0)
  13. Have a great weekend, Michael. Great story. Great truck.
  14. Thank you Coke1234 and bb2!
  15. Thanks Gulf!
  16. Here's a helpful resources put together by our old CW buddy toolboxted: https://sites.google.com/site/idcocacolachestmachines193459/home
  17. Cool piece!
  18. Wow, kicking it up a notch CK! Beauty! Collection looks great too.
  19. Your suspicion is correct about this raisin rack. A common "fantasy" item, popular at flea markets during the 70's-80's, many different versions. Not that old nor authentic. https://www.ebay.com/...
  20. Don't tempt me Bernie, I don't need any encouragement!!! ;0)
  21. With the circle R trademark detail to the right of the logo, dates to 90's or later.
  22. The bottle thermos are good if marked Robertson. A good rule of thumb is if unit of measure shows both Fahrenheit and Celsius, it's a later/repro version.
  23. I agree with EJW, Michael, they look good to me. I have both in my collection. Nice ones!
  24. Thanks Bernie!
  25. World of Coca-Cola? Yeah, they aren't too big on selling...
  26. Wow, now that's what I call a collection! Very nice. Looks like a museum. Is that Cedartown, Ga.?
  27. Thank you Michael! It's always nice to hear from you. I've picked up more than a few pointers from your posts, so I appreciate it.
  28. Thanks Scott!
  29. Thanks Manikin and Scott. Yes Manikin they were given to stores or sold at a very low cost. Of interest in the store photo, the signs behind owners spell out Cents instead of using the ¢ symbol. I ...
  30. Hard to be sure based on the images, but it looks right to me. These were made by Westinghouse and Cavalier Corp. Not all had the embossed inner lid. The restoration doesn't look bad, it's a nice p...
  31. Thanks again Rob, that's good stuff!
  32. Thanks rniederman, very interesting. The framed pic is 7-1/2" x 35-1/2" so I think the photo is right around 6 x 34.
  33. Cornelius Compact 50. http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=138&Itemid=14
  34. Very nice and a scarce one too.
  35. Mexican "Enjoy Coca-Cola" table, 1970's.
  36. Thanks Henry, glad you asked. Checked the book again and it's listed as 1959 (not 1950).
  37. Looks like a Temprite picnic cooler from the 50's, stripped of its red paint surface. Light wipe with a damp rag, maybe a mild abrasive car polish. Wouldn't worry about doing further damage.
  38. Garage looks fabulous Michael. Nice addition.
  39. Nice. Late 1950's thereabouts.
  40. Looooking goooood bb2!
  41. Thanks Coke1234!
  42. Nice one Mr. 'Fuel, great find!
  43. Bernie! Thank you sir. I'm considering having it "detailed", I think a doll expert could do some good. Depends on cost though... Nice to year from you!
  44. Wise words, Spirit.
  45. I see you pulled this off the web. Typically posts are pieces in the author's collection, but objects of interest are always welcome too. I agree it's an image of a great bottle.
  46. Nice early Georgia bottle. Joseph Biedenharn of Vicksburg, Miss. is widely acknowledged as the first person to bottle and sell Coca-Cola in 1894. Brunswick Coca-Cola was founded in 1903 at 110-112 R...
  47. I agree with purvis, nice authentic sign. Scarce version. If you plan to buy more old Coca-Cola signs, get yourself a copy of Petretti's 12th Edition Guide so you have a point of reference for price...
  48. This one is listed 1947-1952 in Petretti's 12th Edition.
  49. International signs can be a challenge, as they are less documented than domestic versions. I love these Canadian push plates. I believe there are many fakes and restored pieces out there. The Coca...
  50. thank you Gulf, I do enjoy that mini ice cooler.
