Collecting Ideal Sliders

« on: June 21, 2022, 10:33:01 pm »

I have been out of the hobby for a while. I have restored several ideal 55’s including embossed OC and Coca Cola. I found an embossed OC 85 that I am picking up.  Are these as desirable as the 55?

The 85 is no where close to the 55 as far as collectability due to size really, however your OC 85 is probably worth more that some of the 55s for sure. (generic, Pepsi, 7up) if that makes sense. Everything original OC seems to always demand a premium.

 :happydrinkers:I agree, because of of it being OC, it has an advantage over plain-Jane 55,s

It does have the rack, but thank you. Would prefer to have a 55 like the one I had.
