Vintage Mobilgas Pegasus Sign Flies to Auction Blocks

Jan 18, 2018

My hunt for the mythical creature had been unsuccessful for years. I knew one had to be out there somewhere with my name on it but month after month, year after year, I simply could not find the famous flying horse. The equally famous “American Pickers” seem to be magnets for them on TV but not me. House after house, outbuilding after outbuilding, storage unit after storage unit, I remained unfulfilled — our Maryland/Virginia/DC estate liquidation company’s resume seemingly incomplete. Then the phone rang last week. A friend told me that he had spotted my quarry in a most unexpected place — a white-glove-clean new Virginia home. He sent photos confirming his vision was not a mirage. My heart raced but I fought the urge to let my hopes soar to the heavens. That’s...

This Just In: 1950s Cavalier C51A Coca-Cola Machine

Jan 23, 2017

We’ve just brought the sweetest vintage Coca-Cola machine we have ever found to our booth D-5 at Old Glory Antique Marketplace in Frederick, Maryland. The C51A Coca-Cola machine is in excellent working order! We purchased it from a huge Coca-Cola collector who let go of his entire collection to us last weekend.) The owner used this machine until the day we put it on our truck. We’re asking $5,600 but are always open to reasonable offers. A few minor scratches here and there and a few screws on the back panel fell off and disappeared while we were moving it but overall this is a gorgeous machine. Visit Old Glory seven days a week and ask the staff to call us if you’d like to make an offer. You can also contact us ahead...
