I have a Coca-Cola branded genuine pig skin wallet in near

Resolved Question:

I have a "Coca-Cola" branded genuine "pig skin" wallet in near mint condition. I believe it is from the 1940-1950 era. The imprinted coke emblems are "gold" in color and include a coke bottle and a circled coke emblem reading "Drink Coca-Cola (in coke script) - Delicious and Refreshing" the words TradeMark appear under the script "Coca-Cola".

I have checked the web extensively and am unable to find anything about an advertising premium such as this.........perhaps you can help me determing it's value and collectability factor.

These Coca Cola wallets do show up throughout the market histories. This one in particular is hard to find but here are a few. Their value remains modest as they seem to produce these year after year (I find 63 in a quick search of sales in the last 7 years) I hope this helps narrow what you have. Note that one suspect that these were given out to dealers but I can find no reference to that to back up that information.

You are bidding on a vintage Coca Cola pigskin billfold, probably 1950s or earlier. Wallet is in mint condition - never been used, in original box. Box is aged and shows some wear. A giveaway sales item, with "compliments of Coca Cola" on one side of the box. An interesting addition to any Coca Cola collection....
