I do not know Coke stuff real good. A gentleman offered to sell me a sign. I have NOT seen it in person yet. He believes it's 4'x8'. Given the popularity of these signs, what are the biggest repops they are making in Coke signs? Does anyone know?

Here are the only two pics I have. The proportions look more like 3'x8 or something (even though I don't have a complete picture). I have not found this sign on line, in such a large size.

Thank you all for any help,
-Steve

Steve, this looks 100% legit to me. I used to own one of these large signs just like this one. I do believe it was 4' x 8'. I sold it several years ago when I found a really nice smaller version, which I still own. It is 3' x 5'. Looks like it has the correct ink stamp in the bottom corner too. I have not seen any Coca-Cola reproductions this large. This is an early 1930s sign, and the porcelain was very thick on these with quite a bit of shelving.

This looks good to me also, including the makers mark. As said above, these were early 30s and came in 36 x 60" and 48 x 96" versions.

Thanks guys. I figured that was way too large for a repop (kinda felt stupid asking) but Coke is not in my wheelhouse, and I know Coke is a lot more popular than petroliana. Just thought I’d ask with Coke being so popular and having such a large collectors market.
