I found a porcelain coke button I am interested in. 16 Inch it looks like I think.

Is this real or a fake??... and also look at the writing on it. Is it from the US or somewhere else?

If you look at the bottom it say I think 55 or SSA and by the coke symbol it says MARCA REG

Look at the pictures. What is it worth an is it for real?

Marca Reg is the Spanish abbreviation of Marcas Registrada or Registered Trademark. Mexican sign perhaps.

Hi Jim,
Thank you!
Is the writing on the bottom from 1955 then?
SSA what does that mean?
What is the value?
It is a real vintage sign from the 1950's porcelain correct?

Let me know thanks

Condition isnt too great but not awful. I’m not sure if it is a Mexican Sign. I would say the American version in that condition would be worth $175-$225.

Joey, I'm not a sign guy. You asked if it was of US or foreign origin. I just saw that it appeared that your sign might be of Mexican origin due to the marking, which isn't a stretch if you are in Arizona. Also, I notice in the picture Tecate and Cerveza signs. I'm sure some of the members here who are better versed in sign values can give you more information.

HI Jim, Many thanks appreciate all the info. Just wanted to make sure it was a real one, not a reproduction.
