I recently picked up two Ideal slider 55’s: a Nesbitt’s and a Royal Crown. I think between them I have enough good parts to restore one. Once done I plan to sell it. Based on these brands & the re-sale value, which one would you recommend I restore & which one goes to the junk yard??

I would keep or restore the Nesbitts. I feel that is the hard of the two to find

Keep the Nesbitt’s IMO rarer of the two, although both are very desirable.

Thanks for taking to time to respond. I found a third non-embossed slider locally & am now going to try to restore BOTH the Nesbitt’s & RC Cola. They’re just too cool not to.
