Default Picked up a NICE 50's Royal Crown bottle thermometer at auction

Attended an estate auction Saturday and picked up this nice 1950s Royal Crown Cola thermometer to go along with my RC matching bottle. This has been on my bucket list for many a year. This bottle design was last used in 1956 till replaced by the more familiar red diamond design that was, in turn, used until about 1968.

Looks nice on my advertising wall.

Glasshopper... Your RC Cola thermometer is in superb condition, it appears. Nice score, to go along with the RC bottle and the other thermometers. Nice display!

Tried to get better pic of the thermometers. As a kid, I loved going downtown and seeing these on the old storefronts.
