Just acquired yesterday at an estate sale, this Canadian metal vertical sign is the seldom found version with the 6-pack carton graphics. And dated around the 1940s. There are condition issues as noted in my detailed photos.Most notably is an area of rust along the bottom rim. Other issues are numerous scrapes, scratches, minor dents along the border and some paint loss on the 6-pack circles on top. I call these character flaws. There is also a slight bend/warp towards the middle of the sign but no crease or bend marks. There's no hanging holes on this sign either. My personal preference are signs in this condition, used for their intended purpose which hold historic as well as monetary value as opposed to a NOS (New Old Stock) that never seen the light of day. Not that I wouldnt want a NOS sign either but I like these older signs or as some refer to them as rusty gold. Buvez Coca-Cola = Drink Coca-Cola. Emportez-en un carton chez-vous = Take home a carton with you. This sign will be sandwiched between two sheets of thick foam core and inserted into a rigid cardboard box.
