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.

  1. Nice decorative item, a reproduction of a scarce original carrier with cover. The "tell" on this one is how the top wood support is fastened to the two sides. On the original, it is dovetailed. The...
  2. Yep exactly right. The hobbleskirt bottle was/still is "Coke Only".
  3. I think that passport will get you into Michigan bb2... hilarious!
  4. Coca-Cola bottlers sold other flavors, so this would have held an orange or grape soda, something like that.
  5. Thank you Bernie! Fewer nuggets these days, that's for sure. We're all doing OK here, hope you and your fam as well.
  6. Yes I think you're right, a local bottler promotional give-away toy. Many, many different branded trinkets and knickknacks were handed out by bottlers over the years. Many times they didn't bother ...
  7. Nice signs and great luck Michael! Incredible finds for a cold call. Looking forward to seeing the garage refresh. Will be fun.
  8. Nice. 1930's 4-case cooler by maker Moss. Frame was originally green paint. Lid and cap catcher will be very difficult to find. Also was on castors. The signage looks nice, there's some value the...
  9. Those were the days! Beautiful clock Michael. And I love that chair too! :0)
  10. Right place - right time. And those beauties found the right home. Congrats Bern.
  11. Wow Bernie! A beautiful traffic jam!!! Great collection.
  12. A real beauty Trev! Congrats!!
  13. Reproduction electric based on the Gilbert 1920-1940 pendulum Coca-Cola clock. It was a nice gift! Value is decorative. https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/76240038
  14. 1970's or later, poster print depicting a 1924 cardboard cut-out. If you had the actual cut-out, you could do a happy dance. Still a nice decorative piece to enjoy from your grandmother.
  15. Great graphics and a lovely piece.
  16. 1940’s-1950’s aluminum 6-bottle carrier. Used for home delivery (bottlers delivered just like the milkman) or a housewife could take to the store and full up. Cardboard cartons have been around sin...
  17. Nice collection! Merry Christmas Mani!!
  18. Nice collection and well displayed. Fun to look at!
  19. 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.
  20. Nice score. The green tint face makes it extra special.
  21. Great sign Michael. Highly desirable, incredible condition. And you found the perfect spot for it. Congrats!
  22. 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.
  23. Right on all counts I believe, and you have a good eye Ms.CS! That "hidden" Coke sign is not easy to see.
  24. I have a spot for it Michael, no problem! ;0) What a beauty!!!
  25. Dine-in Only, BB2! Nice to hear from you, hope all is well on the island.
  26. 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...
  27. 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....
  28. 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...
  29. You'll find a place Michael! LOL Fantastic sign, WOW!!!
  30. Great can and paper Michael. The pickin's may be slim, but always nice to find the good old stuff!
  31. The tray is printed with the slogan Drive In For Coke.
  32. Nice find. 1959 "drive-in" serving tray.
  33. 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.
  34. Thank you Bernie, always good to hear from you!
  35. 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...
  36. Thank you TallCakes. I know a little about Coca-Cola memorabilia but very little about glass. I appreciate it!
  37. 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...
  38. 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...
  39. Looks good, nice sign.

  43. 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
  44. 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...
  45. 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...
  46. 1990's or later, Coca-Cola licensed clothing line. Manufactured for retail sale.
  47. 2 to 2-1/2 would be fair.
  48. 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).
  49. Congrats CK, that's a beauty. Very difficult to acquire the white button Coke signs, this one is a real winner!
  50. 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.
