Cans were less likely to break than bottles, chilled faster and needed no bottle openers or cap receptacles. Over ninety percent of the world recognizes the Coca Cola logo, and collectors all over the world add any object containing this popular logo to their collections every days. Coca Cola memorabilia has seemed to become extraordinarily valuable even with the introduction of even new present day collectibles. Coca Cola memorabilia consists of specialty items that include beanie babies, plush toys, tins, playing cards, pens, pencils, phone cards, dish ware, matchbooks, thimbles, clothing, signs, trays, patches, and so much more. The values of these items are determined by their availability and the condition they are in. The use of a grading scale was established in 1965 by Sheldon Goldstein as the Coca Cola Collector's Standard and has been used for over four decades. With bottles and cans they should always be full unless it is other wise specified. A rare class item are items that are any items before the 1904 period. An item that is in mint condition should be in an unused state and the original packaging should be unopened. Near mint conditioned items will have very minor marks of aging or use and are close to their original condition. Items in excellent condition will have no more than tiny scratches, small chips, or little marks on their outer rim or edges and the opened packaging should still be intact.
