Why Choose This 1943 Coca-Cola WWII Boeing B17 "Fortress" Sign?

The Coca-Cola Company that we know today generates billions of dollars in revenue each year and has a product that is enjoyed 1.7 billion times on average around the world every single day. With numbers like that, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to learn that Coca-Cola is the most consumed soft drink in both the United States and around the world. One thing that some individuals do not know is that Asa Candler, the founder of the Coca-Cola Company, was one of the first to really utilize merchandising as part of his marketing strategy. This left behind many great pieces of memorabilia for us to enjoy today.

While the Coca-Cola Company was formed in 1892, the story of Coca-Cola begins in 1886. That was the year that it was formulated and offered for the first time by pharmacist John Pemberton. Pemberton's new stimulating tonic was an immediate hit with the locals. After being approached by investors and other local businessmen, he made some questionable decisions and began to split and sell the rights to his beverage. Asa Candler must have believed in the potential of Coca-Cola, as he spent years acquiring all of the rights for himself and then founded the Coca-Cola Company.

This Coca-Cola cardstock sign measures 15" by 13" and features the Boeing B17 "Fortress" design. This blast from the past was issued as part of a set depicting WWII aircraft that was released in 1943. These signs were widely used in local establishments at that time, which also led to very few of them being preserved. The sign offered here comes with a certificate of authenticity and is in excellent condition despite potentially having minor handing issues.
