Coke signs are among the most popular collectors items on the market. But did you ever take the time to think about how the signs were made? Depending on the type of sign, the process could involve the work of many artists, creative designers, lithographers and more to create a finalized sign for display. Tin signs are a collectors favorite, and I thought that you's appreciate seeing these photos from a shop that produced some of the well-known 1931 "Ice Cold Coca-Cola Sold Here" signs. These signs, if found in good condition today, would be worth around $1,000 on the market.
