Vintage Coca-Cola advertising sold at a Pennsylvania auction is featured in a sale report in “Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles" March 2015 newsletter. Bidding popped up to $2,700 for a Coca-Cola crossing guard display sign. See pictures and prices of other signs and posters—even a radio and a box of straws—that garnered attention from the Coke crowd. Majolica pieces that once decorated the home of a famous collector greatly exceeded pre-auction estimates at a California auction. Plates, vases, bowls and other majolica rarities with a nautical theme are pictured and priced in Kovels' March newsletter. Some call them tractor seats, but collectors in the know call them cast iron implement seats, and paid prices that ranged from $20 to over $4,000 at an Indiana auction. See what they look like, how they're rated and what they're used for now in Kovels' March issue.
