For your consideration we are offering this rare-to-market metal Coca-Cola railway crate. It is yellow-painted metal with a gridded, three section interior that holds 72 bottles. It has a hinged lid with a round finger hole to aid in opening the top and 6 rectangular holes on the sides for lifting/carrying. The original latch is present and functional, even though it is a bit worn and rusted.
The front and back are both embossed COCA-COLA BOT. The top has a large Coca-Cola script impressed logo (somewhat obscured with rust, dirt, scrapes and patina). It doesn't appear that the lettering was ever painted differently than solid yellow but the top paint is very worn and blotchy as pictured. On both side ends, the number 1002 is embossed. This crate measures 32 1/2" wide by 9 1/4" high by 16 deep.
There is overall wear, scratches, and rust on the crate as pictured. It has a couple of dents and dings but nothing too extensive.
Additional pictures are available on request - please be specific about what you would like to see. Your transport company will want to know the following information: residential location, no stairs, no loading dock, weight, size, whether you want them to crate, box, or blanket wrap (recommended) the item.
