Thank You & Happy eBaying from all of us at RIICS Inc.Large Rare Antique 1942 WWII US Army Nurse Corps, Drink Coca Cola Cardboard Sign.. The last owner of this rare, large 26 ½" by 55 3/8" drink Coca Cola Sign, had it properly mounted under Plexiglass with a copper gilded metal frame. In the middle of this Sign is a young pretty, US Army Nurse, drinking a bottle of Coke. When searching for this sign on the net, we found that Coca Cola offered free beverages to the Soldiers, which also conveniently enabled them to avoid sugar-rationing laws. In the other corner it reads Litho in U.
This Sign is in amazing condition, and the cardboard retains its original gloss surface. There are a couple of problems. One is some tiny white marks to the young lady's forehead, and just to the right of her nurse's cap.Above the Army Tents is a 5 ½ long line that looks like a thin crayon mark. There also are a couple of other scattered small marks, as well as a crinkle fold to the upper right hand corner. This fold is difficult to see without the light hitting it just right. I can easily grade this rare 1942 Coke Sign's condition as 9+ out of 10. If you search the internet hard enough you will find one other example of this WWII Sign, and it is not for sale.
