Title: Wanted : DEAD or Alive
Post by: Bigfoot on August 19, 2013, 07:36:00 PM
Still looking for an Orange Crush in the Superior Jr variety in original paint.
These are the ones with the lid with the little Bakelite handle.
Bottom of the coolers are sometimes stamped Sterling.

Top $ or trade
Can trade coolers just as HTF.

Thnx
Email is best and is in my Forum info.

Probably would be a good idea to post a photo of one , or at least simiiar so we know what your looking for when we run across one...  I see lots of coolers at shows, auctions and such, but not sure what they are exactly...

What I am talking about is a little cooler like this one (Coke) but in orange and would say Orange Crush on it.  Lettering would be white.
They have a little bakelite handle on lid which can be seen here and the metal handle that goes to the body as shown.
These came in 8-10 brands.
Looking for an Orange Crush in this variety in original paint.
Thank you.  If you have one please contact me  via my info under my profile.

I didn't know Superior embossed other flavors than coke. I know they made a non-embossed one. Orange Crush would look killer. I will keep my eyes open. I have the embossed coke. Paint color is good but has rust pin hole in the bottom, inside liner is in great shape.

Book shows embossed in Coke, Pepsi, Nu-Grape, Orange Crush, Royal Crown, Dr. Pepper, 7up and Grapette.  I've only seen a Pepsi and 7up.. I passed on the 7up at the time....
wish I would have bought it now.

Wow the seller must think the steel most be made of a alloy with precious metal because of his asking price

You're correct... That is the Pepsi version... These are harder to find for sure.. well... unless you like Coke several coke embossed and
non embossed with decals on ebay all the time... the other though... tough to find.
These rusted out easy... very thin - not sturdy like the A1s you see most often.

Have you seen the Gettelman's Beer superior jr.  Where does that rate on the rarity scale?

The Gettelman’s used to be common but you don't see many superior jars at all these days besides Coca Cola.
Being a beer cooler, the desire is lower than with soda brands.
Value wise I'd say they're about the same as Coke superiors.

Someone on a Facebook site just posted a OC Superior Jr. he just bought. He said it's NFS but it is an outstanding original.

Hey Bigfoot,
Did you make the list for the new GT? I fell way short.
Hope you find the cooler soon.
