     Welcome to another Guide for the Coca Cola Collector. This guide is really the second half of the guide "Coca Cola Collecting - THE NEXT STEP." I would advise you to read the first half, which gives you many ways to date your memorabilia. In this half, we are going to look at actually working out which country the items have come from.

Left: Bottle from Ethiopia.    Middle: Can from Thailand.    Right: Can from Bnei Brak

Why it is important!

     For some people it is not important to know where an item has come from. Thats fine. Not everyone wants to get into the background of collecting. But there will be times when you have an article, like maybe the 3 items above. Everything on the can or bottle is in a different language, except for maybe a proper Coca Cola logo on the other side. How do you determine where it is from.?

Using the "Registered Trade Mark" line

     Under the normal Coca Cola Logo that is nearly always on these items, there will be a line of type that basically means "Registered Trade Mark" or something along those lines, in the specifiic language of the country. It does not appear on every single item, but cans, bottles and most memorabila with the normal logo will have it, and thats most.

     By knowing what writing each country has, you can narrow down, and alot of the times correctly work out exactly where the item was from. Obviously some countries may have exactly the same line of foreign words, but it narrows it down or confirms what you believe the country to be.

     I have compiled a list of lines that many countries use on their items. I have taken it off not only cans, but bottles and memorabilia as well. Thus you will find that some lines might mention bottle in them, but still it gives you the unique language that was used, and it makes it so much easier to get a country.

PLEASE NOTE: The trademark line is written in Upper and Lower case the same way as it appears on the item. Most of these trademark lines are pre-1996, so countries may have changed slightly.

     When the Coca Cola logo is foreign, like the ones above, then usually the trademark line is foreign too. This method works only for the normal logos used on foreign items.

    The use of these lines will really help in finding where the item came from. Once you get use to the foreign logos as well, it becomes easier to work it out as well.

    If you are interested in bidding on some Coca Cola items, have a look at these sellers. I have had great dealings with them, and would recommend them to anyone.

Eamon's Coke Hut - He lives and breathes Coke. Sometimes he drinks it too. Have a look, its worth it.

robbos coke - Some great items for the Coca Cola collector. Sometimes nice rare stuff.

Lucilles Interesting - Collectables - Anything Coke. Another great seller.

ccolasmyhaven - Really nice Coke collectables. Some rare and very different.

or you can vist my items for sale at mmmmmcoke items for auction and make sure you visit my guides at mmmmmcoke guides for you

    Thank you for reading my guide and I hope you got something out of it!

Regards, Mike
