Jan and Larry Schmidt Museum of Coca- Cola Memorabilia
Probably the biggest and best private collection of Coca-Cola Memorabilia will be sold in a series of auctions starting as soon as mid-September. More than 80,000 items, which is estimated to be worth as much as $10 million are the property of the Schmidt Museum of Coca-Cola Memorabilia in Elizabethtown. The owners, Jan and Bill Schmidt decided it is time for a change and plans to use the proceeds from sales to fund a family foundation.
The collection includes one-of-a-kind posters, rare serving trays, unique bottles, jewelry, lighted signs and antique delivery trucks. The collection even includes the side of a barn. The collection dates back to the 1800s.
