Original Old 31" Pepsi Cola Tin Bottle Cap Sign No Embossing, Colorful, Rustic:
This lot consists of an original old tin Pepsi Cola sign, probably dating from 1951-1963*. It is large – 31” across - and shaped like a bottle cap at a slight angle, designed to be viewed from below. It is not embossed. Red, ivory and blue, with script lettering “Drink Pepsi-Cola” with “R” in a circle below, “St. Louis MO USA” on bottom edge. It is thicker on the bottom edge, with the crimped side of the cap showing, and tapers to a thinner edge at the top where there is no crimped edge.
It is in "as found, as is" condition, with some worn mounting holes, plus rust and missing pieces on the bottom edge, paint bubbles, scratching, corrosion, wear, weathering, scuffs, dirt, stains, bends, aging, patina, stray paint, etc. Rustic and authentic. See photos and ask any questions before offerding.
*Pepsi-Cola was invented in 1898, trademarked in1903. The logo was changed from an elaborate script to the modern block letters in 1963. Until 1951, the words "Pepsi" and "Cola" were separated by 2 dashes.
It might interest the buyer to know where this sign came from. It was originally mounted on the storefront of the "Mercer Market" aka "Manny's" at Mercer and Market Streets in the Mill Hill section of Trenton, NJ, until the early 1980s when this building (and many more were) torn down for a road widening.
